Let me tell you a little about
a product of Samuel D. Sessions, Inc. of South Paris Maine.
Designer, Sam Sessions and logger, Dale Verril invented and patented “no
hydraulics pull through delimbing” in the early eighties. Stripper™
Delimbers have been in use for over 25 years and are currently in use
throughout the United States and Canada.
The Stripper™ Delimber is the industry leader with fast, affordable,
dependable "no hydraulics" delimbing.
The Stripper™ Delimber is a very well built yet simple machine with only
two moving parts. This translates into low maintenance costs and less
This machine features a patented, NO-HYDRAULICS design. Price, speed,
durability and simplicity make the stripper a very popular alternative
to hydraulic units costing 3-4 times more.
The Stripper™ Delimber can be put to work as soon as the machine arrives
on the job. No hydraulics means less down time, and maintenance is
The machine delimbs in both directions. The knives are closed by placing
the stem of the tree into the machine. The weight of the top arm holds
the knives against the stem of the tree as the tree is pulled though the
stripping head. The stem is then pushed back through the head and simply
lifted up and out. This leaves the top knife open and ready for the next
Exclusive “E-Z SLIDE” bolt in knives can be easily replaced and the
double sided, bottom knives can be reversed when worn.
The new 2009 Stripper design features a more open
throat for easier loading.
The Stripper™ Delimber comes with an adapter plate for easy attachment
to trailers and slashers. Rugged yet light weight (1600 lbs)
construction allows for easier moving and causes less stress on
equipment. It can also be used with skidders and harvesters. Stripper
also offers its own extendable chassis. A high speed hydraulic topping
saw is available.
The Stripper™ Delimber works well with fir, spruce, pine, hemlock, and
poplar, as well as some hardwoods and similar species. Even in
applications where only a portion of the wood is being delimbed with the
Stripper, a significant increase in production can be obtained.
Even loggers who have big loaders that are equipped for hydraulic units
are choosing the Stripper™ Delimber for its performance,
simplicity and easy maintenance

"I have a shear, two skidders and
a crane. By adding the Stripper, we tripled our production.

with just a pintle hitch."

"The Stripper is just what we
needed. We already had a hydraulic delimber, but we weren't happy with it. We were always
adjusting or fixing something. The Stripper isn't just a cheaper alternative. It actually

"We were all fooled when we first
saw the Stripper. We had a hydraulic machine prior to this, and we had to wait for the
arms to close. The Stripper opens and closes as fast as you can move the
Everyone thought it wouldn't be rugged enough, but it is -- and the arms don't dig
into the wood. It has a smooth slide both ways.
This machine is virtually
maintenance free, and it is very easy to transport from lot to lot."
