Ponsse Fox

The eight-wheel PONSSE Fox is at home on soft soil and slopes. Easy and comfortable working is assured. With an entirely new type of crane located close to the cabin, the driver has an excellent view over the surrounding work site. The powerful engine and solid cylinder frame lock make both harvesting and navigating the site easy and efficient. The machine’s eight wheels and crane’s low centre of gravity ensure steady movement in all conditions.

The PONSSE C44+ parallel crane is designed specifically for thinning jobs. Despite this, the machine is effective on all kinds of sites, thanks to its 36 feet (11-metre) reach and the versatile PONSSE H5 harvester head. Developed for efficient thinning, PONSSE H5 is a general harvester head, designed with particular attention to smooth multistemming.

The new PONSSE Fox harvester combines reliability and innovation. The fast yet economical feed and cutting of the PONSSE H5 harvester head guarantee high productivity under all operating conditions. The Opti4G information system enables multi-stemming without any mechanical changes to the harvester head. PONSSE Fox can also be equipped with the adept H6 harvester head, for a reach of up to 34 feet (10.3 metres).
