Logging-on’s first issue of February sees the release of the new N6 thinning harvester from Nisula. This harvester is dedicated to thinning and has been designed to consider the specific requirements for low impact and high productivity operations. Two articles from Volvo demonstrate the rapid movement towards electric vehicles in transport and construction. Volvo shows that electric trucks are becoming an option even with heavy duty transport applications. Volvo is also busy testing the electric ecosystem required to electrify an entire construction site. Cat has produced a new mulcher. The new D1 mulcher has features including a high-performance powertrain and increased visibility to the mulcher. Nokian explains how Northern European countries are experiencing the effects of climate change, resulting in softer soils when they would usually be frozen. Tests are being carried out to see the role that tyres can have in mitigating this. Finally, we are pleased to announce that Expoforest 2023 will once again take place at its usual location in Brazil.
