The Ponsse Bison forwarder and Ponsse Cobra and Fox harvesters were launched at the fair.
The new products are part of the Boost/Save philosophy enabling customers to improve the productivity and cost efficiency of harvesting through the right products, information systems, training and service. Apart from forest machines, Ponsse will be presenting at the FinnMETKO fair new features, products and solutions for environmentally friendly and responsible harvesting. All of these will be expanded upon in future editions of Logging-on, but for now we give an overview of the 3 new logging machines.
- Ponsse Bison Active Frame – A “next-generation” forwarder at its best over long transport distances. It features a modern Mercedes-Benz/MTU engine, powerful loader and robust CVT gearbox. It is equipped with an Active Frame cabin suspension system. The structurally simple, yet effective system ensures that lateral swings affecting the driver are eliminated in an efficient and unnoticeable fashion.
- Ponsse Cobra - An eight-wheel all-round harvester with an extensive range of options. The Cobra’s strengths include a powerful six-cylinder engine, a high-performance hydraulics system powered by a large 210cm3 working pump, and a robust and thoroughly tested structure. Thanks to the high quality of its basic solutions, the Cobra is a reliable and fuel-economic package. The accurate and easy-to-use crane, great balance and powerful six-cylinder engine make it an ideal solution for varying conditions.
- Ponsse Fox – An economical and efficient harvester. Suitable for demanding conditions and soft terrain, the Fox can easily tackle harvesting challenges thanks to its accurate and powerful crane, good visibility, great stability and low surface pressure. The eight-wheel Fox is at home at thinning sites and on soft terrain. The crane is powerful, easy-to-use and located near the cabin, with good visibility to the work area. Source
