Fo­cus on ef­fi­ciency, dura­bil­ity and ease of main­te­nance

Australian Forests and Timber - - Head-Lines -

THE HIS­TORY of Pon­sse har­vester heads dates all the way back to the 1980s. At that time sin­gle-grip har­vesters were ex­tremely rare, but a clear vi­sion was that more ef­fec­tive ways needed to be cre­ated for log­ging.

To­day, har­vester heads are widely used on both wheeled and tracked base ma­chines around the world. Pon­sse’s ex­ten­sive prod­uct range of­fers har­vester head ap­pli­ca­tions from first thin­ning to heavy­duty re­gen­er­a­tion felling, as well as mod­els from de­bark­ing eu­ca­lyp­tus heads to pro­cess­ing from a pile.

Strong head and tilt frames give ex­cel­lent reli­a­bil­ity in hard work­ing con­di­tions, and the Pon­sse Opti con­trol sys­tem of­fers mod­ern ad­justa­bil­ity and ac­cu­racy in an easy-to-use for­mat. Thanks to easy ad­just­ments, Pon­sse har­vester heads are suit­able for var­i­ous uses from thin­ning to fi­nal felling. Their high feed power and fast eco­nom­i­cal saw­ing re­sult in ex­treme ef­fi­ciency. As each har­vester head can be ad­justed ac­cord­ing to tree and base ma­chine prop­er­ties, work­ing is easy and the har­vester head has a long ser­vice life.

More­over, Pon­sse’s Opti op­ti­miz­ing con­trol sys­tem guar­an­tees mea­sure­ment ac­cu­racy in cut­ting.

The PON­SSE H10 is de­signed and built for heavy-duty pro­cess­ing work in hard con­di­tions. A ro­bust struc­ture, strong grip and pow­er­ful feed­ing guar­an­tee high ef­fi­ciency and reli­a­bil­ity. The Pon­sse H10 is spe­cially de­signed to work ef­fec­tively as both har­vest­ing head and pro­cess­ing head. Wide ge­om­e­try of feed rollers sup­port even big trees from un­der­neath which en­ables us­ing lower knife pres­sures re­sult­ing in lower fric­tion, higher feed­ing speed and lower fuel con­sump­tion. The H10 is de­signed for track­based ma­chines over 25-tonnes.

The PON­SSE H8 HD is a com­pletely new har­vester head that was launched at Demo 2016 in Canada in the end of Septem­ber. The new Pon­sse H8 HD har­vester head is specif­i­cally de­signed for har­vest­ing and pro­cess­ing big tim­ber in de­mand­ing con­di­tions. It can be in­stalled on the Pon­sse Bear har­vester and on over 24-tonne track-based ma­chines. The new har­vester head model of­fers a su­pe­rior per­for­mance con­sid­er­ing its size. A pow­er­ful feed, com­bined with its ge­om­e­try which firmly sup­ports even the larger trees with feed rollers, guar­an­tees ex­treme pro­duc­tiv­ity and fuel econ­omy.

Each Pon­sse har­vester head model has been de­signed with fo­cus on ef­fi­ciency, dura­bil­ity and ease of main­te­nance. Each model is char­ac­ter­ized by its sim­ple and strong struc­ture. Pon­sse har­vester heads are built for rough con­di­tions.
