Eco Log to launch new forest machine
Four years ago, Eco Log caused a stir when it presented its vision of the forwarder of the future at Elmia Wood. This time around much of that vision has become down to earth hardware including a new forest machine that is soon to be unveiled.
– We’ll be exhibiting a new machine ready for production, revealed Daniel Majgren, Chief Marketing Officer at Eco Log, a Swedish forest machine developer and manufacturer.
A lot has happened at the company over the past year that ought to garner interest for its participation at this year’s show. The beginning of 2016 saw the premiere of the harvesters in its new E Series and within just over three months the entire year’s production was reserved. The year ended with the presentation of the new forwarders in the same series.
At the upcoming Elmia Wood, Eco Log will for the first time exhibit its complete E-Series of harvesters and forwarders. The machines including their cabs are newly developed but are receiving most praise for their new engines. Eco Log has switched to Volvo for the E-Series, gaining lower fuel consumption and better performance in the forest.
– Volvo Penta is responsive to our customers’ demands and is investing strongly in the forest industry. The brand is also known for its high level of service, said Majgren.
For the same reason – good service at a high level – Eco Log is presenting a range of its own new services at the fair, all designed to increase efficiency and machine availability. More details will not be revealed until the fair. The same is true for the new machine, which is having its world premiere.
The biggest news is that Eco Log gained a new part-owner at the start of 2017, the investment fund Accent Equity 2012. It will provide the financial muscle for Eco Log to continue renewing its machinery portfolio.
– Our owners want to see renewal and growth. We can only deliver that by offering forest contractors the right machines for the future, Daniel Majgren said.
