Ponsse launches the new H9 harvester head at the Oregon Logging Conference in the USA.
The new harvester head strengthens Ponsse's strategy to be the leading manufacturer also for harvester heads. Ponsse have developed a robust cutting head for tracked machines. The new Ponsse H9 harvester head is capable of processing, felling and multi-stemming even large trunks. Thanks to the felling feature, the new harvester head has a good tilt function and the top saw option allows for more efficient tree handling.
The H9 harvester head features a solid structure, firm grip and powerful feed that provide a high efficiency ratio and reliability from one logging site to the next. All Ponsse harvester heads have been designed to withstand harch conditions. They are characterised by a simple and solid structure which enables them to be used in various harvesting applications from harvesters to track-based solutions.
All Ponsse’s harvester heads are manufactured and designed at the Ponsse factory in Vieremä, Finland. The design process is comprehensive and covers, in addition to mechanical parts, the electronic control systems, controls and software. The manufacturing process is highly automated to ensure high quality and measuring accuracy. The frames of harvester heads are machined from a single piece after the welding assembly. This guarantees the good quality with excellent precision. Durable hoses and delimbing knives form an important part of reliability. Source
