Wisent Dual

WisentDual - Everything in one machine
Having achieved enormous popularity, the BuffaloDual harwarder now welcomes a powerful little brother. The brilliant technical solutions of the BuffaloDual are now combined with the Wisent's lightness and agility in one power package: the WisentDual.

Ponsse Wisent Dual

A rugged machine for final fellings - a lightweight machine for thinnings. Sound familiar? What if one could improve performance even more and still operate even more flexibly in the ever-changing conditions which face the contractor?
With the help of the WisentDual, you can substantially improve the return from less productive harvest sites, because you will achieve significant savings in capital, transport, maintenance and wear. The WisentDual is very suitable for harvesting small areas or stands with small-diameter trees. This frees the heavier machinery to work in more lucrative harvesting areas.
Efficient harvester
When equipped as a harvester, the WisentDual is a match for today's single grip harvesters. When the H53 harvester head is attached to the powerful K90 Dual crane and the forwarder fittings removed all the way to the rear bogie, the machine acquires the completely new, compact, nimble look of a harvester. In designing the WisentDual, particular attention was paid  to stability and performance when harvesting heavy timber. The machine's compact, sturdy structure, powerful engine and efficient crane with its 10-metre reach make high-performance harvesting with a single machine possible in all kinds of logging sites.

Full-blooded forwarder
Impressive tractive force, crane efficiency and ample load space make the WisentDual a full-blooded forwarder for transporting wood. The manoeuvrability, balance and even load distribution provided by its superior geometric design guarantee that the WisentDual is suitable for harvesting sites with all kinds of trees and terrain, from soft peat soil to hard rocky heath.
