Logging-on’s second issue of May highlights the technology developments in logging machines. Logset has produced their second hybrid harvester, the 8H GTE Hybrid, which is smaller than the large 12H GTE Hybrid, which was launched in 2016. Volvo provides us with information about the move towards battery powered construction machines. Researchers have also examined the technological development and sales of forwarders in the Swedish market and have produced some very interesting results. Nokian continues to expand their range of site-specific tyres designed to make machines well-suited to specific applications. The latest offering focusses on wheeled excavators. Finally, we examine the new Komatsu PC290LCi-11 intelligent machine control excavator from Komatsu.
