The mechanically or hydraulically variable load areas (VLA) designed by Ponsse enable the best possible utilisation of the load area.
The solution increases flexibility in harvesting different sites: the variable load area facilitates in harvesting of industrial wood and increases load volume in energy wood harvesting, thus improving the productivity of harvesting substantially when machine capacity can be utilised better. PONSSE LoadOptimizer load scale guarantees properly-sized loads and provides accurate reports on transported volumes.
The hydraulically variable load area can be controlled by means of operating switches directly from the cabin. When transporting lighter energy material, the expandable load area takes more volume so the machine’s carrying capacity can be utilised better. For transporting normal timber, the load’s centre of the gravity can be lowered by expanding the load area. Hydraulically variable load areas are available in PONSSE Elephant, Buffalo and Elk forwarders, including PONSSE LoadOptimizer load scale.
