Additional information

TRAXION EMBANKMENT SYSTEM + SPEED

Tough and robust scissor action parallel leg system gives this machine exceptional versatility allowing you to expand and retract the legs independently to make for safe tracking on the bank side or simply to negotiate over obstacles.

50HP KUBOTA DIESEL

No shortage of power from a 50hp Kubota diesel, this 4 cylinder power unit produces lots of low down torque making it a perfect combination with the large Först flywheel.

OPTIONAL LIGHTING TOWER

An optional lighting tower to for night work gives not shortage of light. The Aluminium pump action mast with internal lighting cable extends to 3.5m and holds 2 x 4692 lumen LED lights to really turn night into day.

EMERGENCY TRACKING RECOVERY SYSTEM

An optional system to allow you to track the machine off site in the event of engine or hydraulic failure. The completely self-contained battery powered tracking recovery system has its own hydraulic reservoir meaning you can track the machine even if you lose hydraulic fluid or function.

FORSTGRIP FEED ROLLER SYSTEM

The Forst Unique feedroller system with emphasis on exceptional crushing power. The ForstGrip top feed roller climbs on an arc toward the timber, pulling the material toward the flywheel and naturally climbing butt ends to make infeed grip exceptional. Twin high tension springs either side of the roller as well as the sheer weight and gravitational pull mean even the toughest forks and limbs are broken

AUTOINTELLIGENCE

A simple yet advanced electrical control system taking care of all the electrics on the machine. Historically electrics on plant and machinery are a troublesome – AutoIntelligence overcomes this with a completely water and vibration proof system designed and tested in the toughest environments. This system gives excellent usability and outstanding reliability, it will also make you aware when servicing is due and will recommend routine maintenance.

STRENGTH

No compromise in quality and strength – all fabrications are flanged and finished to a high standard

AMAZING VELOCITY

This machine will get rid of chip seriously fast and hard even if it is wet and green. A massive benefit when throwing chip up the bankside thanks to the huge flywheel system with twin 10” blades.
