ROTTNE H14C

ROTTNE H14C is an easily operated harvester and a real powerhouse. An all-round harvester for both final harvesting and thinning.

+ Strong crane with 10 or a full 12 metre reach

+ Well proven machine

+ Service friendly with extra storage

+ Portal bogie

+ 5 different harvester heads

+ Comfort Line

 

An intermediate-class harvester frequently switches between thinning and final felling and should therefore be designed so that it is suitable for both types of felling. Rottne H14C has the qualities required to thin from the strip road with a crane reach of up to 12 metres with a smaller harvester head or to perform final felling with a larger harvester head and shorter crane reach (10,3 m).

Well designed and easy-to-operate 

Rottne H14C is an easily operated harvester and a real powerhouse, an all round machine for final felling and second and third thinning. The harvester has a stable 6-wheel chassis with single rear axle and front portal bogie that ensures excellent ground clearance and improves the harvester’s capabilities in difficult terrain.

The stable design offers many advantages when working on e.g. downhill slopes as the wheel base is designed so that the rear-section provides a good and sufficient counterweight.

CRANE - with great possibilities

The RK140 crane is strong with long reach.

The RK140 crane is especially engineered and developed for Rottne H14. It is located directly above the portal bogie and features a tilt function with large forward and backward deflection. The reach in its standard design is 10,3 metres, but an extension unit is available as an optional extra that increases the reach to a full 12 metres depending on the size of harvester head being used.

CAB - with comfort in focus

+ Same cab for all harvesters

+ Large windows provide excellent visibility

+ Low noise level – quieter than in a new car

+ Comfort Line

+ Programmable buttons

 

Large and comfortable cab

The spacious and comfortable cab with its large windows affords the
operator an excellent view of the entire working area. The cab swivels +/ 90  degrees, levels 15 degrees and automatically follows the crane from side to side, but can also be controlled manually with joysticks.

Comfort Line – the original since 2007

The unique Comfort Line cab suspension system reduces shock and impact and makes driving in terrain significantly smoother. Initially Comfort Line was developed for our forwarders, but is also available in a version for the harvesters. Comfort Line were introduced in 2007 – and are now a well-proven system. Since its introduction, Comfort Line has been developed with improved software, more robust design and precision positioning.

Quieter than in a car!

Sound levels are low – in our cabs it is actually quieter than in a new car. Our cabs easily satisfy the ergonomic guidelines that apply to forestry machines.

Same cab model for all machine models

We have one cab for all our harvesters. The interior of the cab, distribution box, computer equipment and control functions are therefore identical, which is a significant advantage for the operators that switch between our different machine models.

SERVICE FRIENDLY - makes the working day easier

Serviceability is an important factor in development work on all Rottne machines. It must be easy and convenient to perform maintenance, service, repairs.

The entire rear section of the harvester, housing the engine and transmission, can be quickly opened up for inspection and servicing. The hinged belly plates facilitate servicing work, but also make the entire rear section very easy to keep clean.

A vacuum pump for the hydraulic system reduces oil spillage when replacing hoses. Electric pumps for diesel and hydraulic oil simplify filling. The distribution box with fuses, relays, and computers is well positioned for easy access and checking when the right-hand cab door is opened.

Troubleshooting on the electrical system can largely be performed via the machine control system’s operating screen.

ROTTNE D5 - a highly competent control system

The Rottne D5 gives a good overview of the machine's functions.

The Rottne D5 machine control system, which is based on CAN-bus technology, controls and monitors the engine, transmission and crane. The system comprises a main computer and a number of control units on the machine. The operator can adjust settings for the crane, transmission and engine, monitor pressure, temperatures and fluid levels and perform troubleshooting via the touch screen. Alarms are indicated by visual and audible signals and in clear text on the screen.

ROTTNE FORESTER - the new generation of bucking computer

A powerful and easy-to-use system with many advantages.

+ Powerful computer

+ Large touchscreen

+ Many setting options

+ Programmable buttons/keys

+ Stanford 2010-standard

 

Rottne Forester is a quick and easy-to-use bucking system that is common to all our harvesters. A large and clear touchscreen (common to Forester and D5) shows information in a well-arranged manner and makes it simple to program different settings.

Bucking is optimised with value bucking H70* or with the more basic priority bucking (H60)**. EtherCat technology has allowed all bucking calculations to be transferred from the harvester head to a protected location in the cab – which also make calculations faster.

Rottne Forester is built according to the standard Stanford 2010, which means future-proofing for improved communications and synchronisation between different units in forestry. The software also manages automatic reporting with standard pdf-files. Using Rottne Forester it is possible to select the button settings to suit your operating style. An extremely flexible solution if you are not used to a Rottne harvester or prefer other button settings than our defaults.

Rottne Forester makes it easy to produce automatic digital reports directly to the office, for example, when completing an object. It is also possible to print these using the printer in the cab roof or copy via USB.

 

*H70 (Value bucking)

Calculation of the tree is performed by the machine and the computer extracts maximum value for the forest owner.

**H60 (Priority bucking)

More basic form of bucking where the operator programmes lengths/dimensions in a priority order.

ROTTNE XPARTS - Save times, money and the environment

With our replacement system for spare parts – Rottne Xparts – you shorten, or altogether avoids, downtime.

+ Short, or altogether avoid, downtime

+ Low repair cost, on average 60 % of the new price

+ Longer warranty than for new parts

+ Quick deliveries

 

At times misfortune can occur. Things fail. At the worst possible time. Yet with our replacement system for spare parts – Rottne Xparts – you are quickly up and running again. The replacement system is also a good way to minimise downtime through preventive replacement of parts before they fail.

With Rottne Xparts you do not need to wait to get the repair made, but can immediately order a replacement component from your dealer, replace the failed unit and quickly get the machine up and running again. You then return the defective component to us for repair.

 

 In brief, this is how it works:

 1. You order a replacement part from us.If necessary this is shipped express.

 2.You return the failed/replacement part to us within 30 days.

 3. We repair the defective part.The cost is settled.

 

You save money

When you replace a part of your Rottne machine it is exchanged with a replacement part. You then return the defective part to us and only pay the actual repair or renovation cost for this. This will never be more than 90 per cent of the new price and on average amounts to 60 per cent of the new price.

You get a better warranty than a corresponding new part

As we at Rottne repair the defective part ourselves, we can double the warranty compared with a new part, i.e. one year or 2 000 hours (whichever occurs first) in contrast to a new part which has 6 months or 1 000 hours.

You help to reduce the environmental impact

As an alternative to discarding a defective unit, we renovate it as new again. This reduces the environmental impact and with a clear conscience you can also replace units you know are starting to underperform as a preventive measure to increase the technical utilisation.
