Fuel efficiency, power and com­fort plus in new For­warder

Australian Forests and Timber - - Forwarders -

ECO LOG'S new for­warders 574E and 594E have been de­vel­oped with the driver in mind, so a lot of thought has gone into de­sign­ing a com­pletely new cab af­ford­ing greater com­fort and a bet­ter view.

"The for­warder has also been given a new diesel en­gine from Volvo Penta, re­sult­ing in a fu­el­ef­fi­cient ma­chine of­fer­ing a quick re­sponse on load­ing and high re­li­a­bil­ity -- a com­plete power pack which all in all gives bet­ter over­all econ­omy," says Jo­han Jak­t­man, direc­tor of Scan­di­na­vian Forestry & En­gi­neer­ing, the Aus­tralian distrib­u­tor for Eco Log.

The new cab comes with large-framed win­dows and low side win­dows to the front wheels to pro­vide a bet­ter view. The cab is more spa­cious, af­ford­ing greater com­fort, with bet­ter light­ing and many new re­fine­ments.

"An up­grade to the driver’s cab is some­thing our cus­tomers have been ask­ing for, and so we are pleased to be able to launch this cab, which de­liv­ers an en­tirely new driver ex­pe­ri­ence," said Jo­han.

The Volvo Penta D8 en­gine is known for its high per­for­mance, re­li­a­bil­ity, fuel efficiency and low emis­sions lev­els. The over­all re­sult is a ma­chine with min­i­mum down­times and high ca­pac­ity util­i­sa­tion, de­liv­er­ing bet­ter over­all econ­omy.

The 574E and 594E are easy to ser­vice, too.

Jo­han said ma­jor com­po­nents have been grouped on the same side of the ma­chine to make ac­cess eas­ier. Cab, hoods and tank can all be tilted, and the frame is fit­ted with a skid plate that is eas­ily re­moved.

Volvo Penta has a wellde­vel­oped ser­vice net­work that ex­tends across the world, en­sur­ing Eco Log’s cus­tomers a re­li­able ser­vice they can trust in and the best pos­si­ble avail­abil­ity.

The IQAN con­trol sys­tem has been im­proved with the ad­di­tion of more in­te­grated func­tions. The unit now also has a big­ger screen with touch func­tion­al­ity.

"To make the for­warder still more com­pet­i­tive, we of­fer sev­eral op­tions, such as dif­fer­ent types of light­ing and cab damp­ing sys­tem," Jo­han said.

"As well as of­fer­ing the world's best forestry equip­ment, our en­gi­neer­ing ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence en­ables us to of­fer Aus­tralia's best af­ter sales sup­port. We have more than 30 years ex­pe­ri­ence in de­sign­ing, man­u­fac­tur­ing and re­build­ing sys­tems to fit Aus­tralian con­di­tions. This, to­gether with our ex­ten­sive work­shop in Tu­mut al­lows us to of­fer:

• Ser­vic­ing and main­te­nance plans for all equip­ment we sell,

• Equip­ment fault find­ing and re­pair ser­vices,

• Equip­ment up­grade or mod­i­fi­ca­tion ser­vices. "The com­pany prides it­self on be­ing able to sup­ply parts and equip­ment on time and at rea­son­able prices. We are highly skilled in as­sess­ing the needs of the peo­ple we now sup­ply and ser­vice," Jo­han said.
