The new power machine for demanding condition. Ponsse is introducing a new forwarder class to the market.

The PONSSE ELK is a powerful forwarder with a carrying capacity of 13 tonnes. It is designed for extremely challenging terrain. Steep mountain sides, treacherous boulder deposits and heavy tree species require a forwarder with drive and load features that are not generally found in the middle size class. Now they are available!

Extreme ruggedness and maximum power are just two of the factors that make this new machine superior. The frame structure, centre joint design and excellent bogie dimensions ensure safe transport with a full 13 tonne-load. The PONSSE ELK comes equipped with either 6 or 8 wheels. The load space can be adjusted to fit all log sizes, and an adjustable front load gate facilitates carrying the different lengths. The extremely durable PONSSE K70+ and PONSSE K90,  the most powerful loaders in their class, form the loader options.
