THE first harvester from Rottne’s upgraded H8E series has rolled off the production line – boasting all-new features and improved performance. 

The RK75 crane, with its host of mechanical upgrades on the old RK50 and a built-in position sensor, is set to make “a big difference” to the lives of operators.

While maintaining all the benefits of the previous model, the RK75 has a completely new turntable that makes it more efficient, durable and reliable.

Other features on the H8E include: greater slewing angle, increased gross lifting torque and improved control of the crane tip.

Tobias Johansson, CEO of Rottne Industri, said: “With the launch of the Rottne H8E, Rottne Industri is now taking another step forward in the development of flexible forest machines for efficient thinning work.

“We can proudly launch our first machine with a boom control developed here at Rottne.
