PONSSE has unveiled new features to support forest machine operators’ daily work, including a new crane system and positioning solution.

Ponsse Scale is a crane scale system that weighs, sorts, saves and manages load data during all working stages. The collected weighing data makes load-handling routines easier. Precise weight measurements ensure an optimal load at all times. It features full weighing automation during both loading and unloading, with detailed load registration.

It can be installed in all Ponsse forwarder models.

Ponsse High-Precision Positioning is a solution that helps the machine operator know the exact location of the machine and the harvester head. This enables the effectiveness of logging operations to be maintained, even in changing conditions.

Utilising industry-leading navigation and location tools, as well as Ponsse’s own advanced technologies such as Active Crane, High-Precision Positioning can raise the reliability bar to a level conventional positioning systems often don’t reach. By defining the exact location of the harvester head and presenting it on a map view, High-Precision Positioning can significantly improve harvesting productivity.

The solution clearly shows where the operator should harvest and the areas that should be avoided. Every stump location is saved in the production file, and the driving path the harvester creates is clearly visible to the forwarder.

High-Precision Positioning is currently available in Finland, Sweden and Germany for all Ponsse harvesters equipped with Active Crane, and it can also be retrofitted.

Availability for other markets will be specified later.
