Ponsse Buffalo

The productivity and usability of the PONSSE Buffalo with its 14-tonne carrying capacity are based on several years of development work carried out on the basis of user feedback: the durable frames withstand heavy loads and are extremely easy to maintain. The sturdy bogies and cylinder powered frame lock provide reliability under demanding conditions, while increasing the comfort during driving and loading.

The powerful engine and hydraulic system combined with the effective loaders make the Buffalo an extremely productive forwarder. The turbocharged Mercedes-Benz engine with six cylinders is effective and has low fuel consumption. The hydraulic components are of the best available quality and installed in service-friendly locations.

The PONSSE OptiControl machine control system controls the power production of the engine and hydraulics based on the demand.. Therefore optimal power with optimal fuel consumption is always provided. The gps positioning, data transfer and reporting systems and other PC applications of the OptiForwarder information system (optional equipment) make your work more efficient than ever before.
