In Logging-on's first issue of March, we examine how simple it has become to collect road condition data using cell phone technology on log trucks. The Finns are spending much time creating a database to analyse the data, with the resulting information being freely available to all potential users. FPInnovations provides valuable tips to reduce the fuel use of various logging machines. The fuel saving figures provided are based on their operational monitoring. Logset has fully implemented their new TOC 2 (Total Operation and Control 2) control system on their wheeled cut-to-length machines. Finally, JCB brings two new technology offerings to the market. Firstly, their new engines that meet Stage V emission standards are available and JCB shows how they have met the emission requirements. Secondly, we examine their new 20-ton excavators that are packed with technology, practical improvements and provide an improved operator experience. Now to the newsletter!
