FORESTRY machine manufacturer Eco Log has announced the launch of its new F-series, which it says will bring reliability, efficiency and convenient servicing to a whole new level.

F-series harvesters and forwarders are equipped with Stage V engines from Volvo Penta, characterised by high reliability, efficient performance, quick response and environment friendliness.

The forwarder cabin is designed to provide the same, great operator comfort as before, while the rest of the machine has been developed for even better service conditions and higher quality.

Some of the features of the forwarders in the F-series include:

  • the grille, which swings open for easier access and cleaning – the hood is opened with electric actuators to facilitate service;
  • the new larger-dimensioned fenders to house easier-to-access batteries, as well as the toolbox;
  • the urea tank, now placed with the central lubrication unit, fuel and hydraulic tank to facilitate easy access and refilling;
  • the new gearbox in model 594, which increases the tractive effort of the machine, giving it better performance when working in difficult terrain;
  • the machines are equipped with new radiators optimised for Stage V.

To Anders Gustafson, CEO of Eco Log, the launch of the F-series is an important step in the company’s journey.

He said: “We wish to offer our customers an advantageous and long-term ownership and therefore we are now proud to present the F-series.

“Favourable servicing has been one of our strengths for a long time. The fact that we have now lifted it yet another level in combination with a reliable, strong and efficient engine gives the owner of an Eco Log F-series the optimal conditions for maximum up-time and superior overall economics.”

The forwarders of the F-series have also had an improvement in design, mostly in the engine hood but also in the colour scheme of the machines.

The position lights have a new appearance that creates a striking lighting effect in combination with the luminous Eco Log ‘E-logo and pine tree’ in the forwarder grille.
