Ponsse has biomass harvesting solutions
2010 – The economical harvesting of energy wood calls for effective, productive
methods. Ponsse bioenergy products make the harvesting of energy and small wood
flexible and efficient. Energy wood can be harvested simultaneously with
industrial wood, cut separately, or the harvesting equipment can be harnessed
solely for the harvesting of industrial wood, where necessary.
Ponsse has a broad selection of alternatives for multi-stem harvesting of
partially delimbed or undelimbed pulpwood and energy wood. All modern Ponsse
harvester heads in various size categories are suitable for multi-stemming, as
is or equipped with minor accessories. The EH25 energy wood harvester head is
particularly suitable for sites where no feeding or delimbing is required.
harvester head is easy to manage, even in confined harvesting sites, because
its centre of gravity is sufficiently far from the boom tip. The grapple's
powerful tilt feature allows harvested bundles to be held in the vertical
position, facilitating work under difficult conditions and preventing harvest
damage to the residual tree stand.
scaling: The Ponsse LoadOptimizer load scale is a solution for weighing loads.
It weighs, sorts, saves, and manages load data automatically during work. Load
data can be printed or transferred to customer information systems using a USB
memory stick. The display unit is dustproof and waterproof, and can be
installed in Ponsse’s and most other loaders.
load areas: The mechanically or hydraulically variable load areas designed by
Ponsse enable the best possible use of the load area, improving forwarder
capacity and therefore efficiency, particularly for energy wood harvesting. The
hydraulically variable load area is controlled directly from the cabin. When
transporting lighter energy material, the expandable load area takes more load
so the machine’s carrying capacity can be used better. For transporting normal
timber, the load’s centre of gravity can be lowered by expanding the load area.
Hydraulically variable load areas are available in Ponsse Elephant, Buffalo,
and Elk forwarders.
