The global interest in bioenergy has prompted Logset to produce products for this market.
Logset is a Finnish company that was established in 1992. Its core products are forwarders, harvesters, harvester heads, and software and automation systems. Logset’s distribution network covers 20 countries and the machines operate in more than 25 countries. Logset has decided to move into biomass processing. In 2014, Logset and a French company (Establissements Vigneau) signed a partnership to provide new solutions to the bioenergy market.
This partnership has resulted in the production of a new shear head, the SH38, for biomass felling. The head has been designed for a number of applications, such as thinning of trees and bushes, problematic tree felling, multi-stem felling and clear cutting. Logset have focussed on producing a head which is easy to service and requires little maintenance. The SH38 weighs 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) and can be mounted onto tracked excavators from 18 to 25 tons.
