VK5000 Series (Basic)

VK 5000 Series (Basic)

Following our well-known VK550 series, the VK5000 series is our latest debarker development. It has a number of improvements that make using and servicing the debarker easier than ever before. Compared to its bigger counterpart, the VK8000 series, the VK5000 series debarker uses smaller diameter feedrolls and therefore is primarily designed for mills using small and medium size logs.

Compared to the famous heavy duty trim, the basic version debarkers are designed to be the more economical alternative for mills with medium scale production and lower feed speed need, still keeping reliability in focus. At the same time, it offers great flexibility to start the investment process with lower capital expenditure and boost up the debarker as needs grow.


  • Fixed debarking rotor – centering of logs with infeed conveyor
  • Two rotor sizes 48 cm and 62 cm – always with six debarker tool arms
  • Hydraulic pressure system for tool arms
  • Feedroll size Ø58 cm
  • Standard debarker comes with six feedrolls – eight feedroll version available for short logs (SL-version)
  • Hydraulic pressure system for feedrolls
  • VK infeed conveyor as standard


  • Heavy duty machine frame – modular construction allows step-by-step investment

  • Hydraulic pull-out system of debarking rotor for easy maintenance
  • Strong tool arms are made of forged steel – replaceable carbide tool tips
  • Different tool tip versions available ensuring optimal debarking quality in varying conditions
  • Feedrolls with replaceable inserts (FibreMax) for easy maintenance – different insert types available ensuring grip in varying conditions

  • Simple hydraulic system of feedrolls facilitates maintenance and guarantees steady production
  • Centering VK infeed conveyor guides logs smoothly between feedrolls for minimal fibre loss
