Ponsse Gazelle

The PONSSE Gazelle's efficiency and reliability are based on highest-quality components and most sophisticated manufacturing technology available today. The Gazelle's compact and agile appearance hides the raw power contained within: its efficient, four-cylinder Mercedes-Benz diesel engine, powerful K70+ loader and large tractive force, combined with the modern OptiControl integrated control system, guarantee a level of effectiveness unprecedented in this size class.

The low net weight, tight turning radius, optimally shaped bunks and balanced weight distribution of the PONSSE Gazelle mean that even harvesting sites with the most fragile natural environment can be treated gently and with respect. The stable base machine and powerful loader also help  the operator harvest wood at maximum reach without harming standing timber. Environmental awareness is one of the defining features of the Gazelle.

A tough and efficient 129 kW Mercedes-Benz diesel engine produces power for the 145 cm3 working pump, ensuring smooth loader operation. The powerful engine and excellent terrain features mean that driving while loaded is also smooth and efficient.
