Right on Track

Big advantages in a compact format

The 2021 range is very much about tracks. Creating narrow tracks. Following in the harvester's tracks. Being right on track. This is why we have named this launch 'Right on track'. We hope that you would like to join us as we guide you through the advantages, both old and new.

New Thinning Experts

It is with pride that we present our thinning concept Thinning Experts (TX) with the upgraded favorite 835TX as well as the brand new and ultra compact 825TX! Our thinning experts give you even better conditions to work both efficiently and gently.

One new feature is the specially designed tracking frame, which helps you forward in dense stands without damaging remaining trees or compromising with the load space.

Another new feature is the design of the load space, which has been optimised for thinning with a special headboard and bunks. Other important advantages are good visibility and a well-designed crane.

Our Product Manager for forwarders, Daniel Grabbe, tells us more about all the advantages of the TX-concept.

Komatsu 845

The Komatsu 845 12-tonne forwarder is a versatile machine that performs well in thinning, but also in lighter final felling. The 2021 model has been updated with new components, including a new chassis, a new engine and a new control system, bringing it fully in line with the larger forwarders, albeit in a slightly smaller package.

The Komatsu 845 in the 2021 line-up boasts an upgraded design with the same popular cab as the larger forwarders. The work environment is spacious and comfortable with good visibility in all directions – over both the hood and the load area, which is especially important in thinning.

New Komatsu 845 options include a larger crane and SpeedShift.

New tracking frame

The TX machines see the introduction of a new tracking frame that more than halves the difference between the front and rear wheel tracks to less than 200 mm. A machine with little tracking deviation is easier on the forest floor as it leaves narrower tracks at its minimum turning radius and takes narrower routes between trees.

A more agile machine also reduces the risk of damage to standing trees when manoeuvring the machine in tight spaces. The length of the load space is the same as before, maintaining the same level of productivity.

In this video, our Product Manager Daniel Grabbe explains how it works.

A load space for thinning

The load space is optimised for thinning - both the headboard and the bunks are angled 5 degrees inwards to be as agile as possible in tight spaces. This reduces the risk of hitting standing trees when the machine sways from side to side in uneven terrain.

It is important to note that the headboard and the first bunk are connected. A hydraulically adjustable version of this headboard is also available.

In this video we explain how. 

My Position

It is now possible to view your position on the map in MaxiFleet, by using location data. This gives you two major benefits:

- You can mark out all the places where there is important information, directly on the map in your tablet. It can be trees that have been damaged by bark beetle infestations, windthrown trees, or an area that is particularly sensitive. This makes it easier to prepare an object and share information with colleagues.

- Machines from other brands are able to access the information in MaxiFleet and MaxiVision, which simplifies teamwork.

Forwarder instructions

MaxiFleet has a new function for forwarder operators that allows forwarder deliveries and wood piles to be added to the harvesting area in advance.

All preparations can be made in the office and the forwarder instructions then sent to the machine. The operator can simply get into the machine and start working.
