Rottne F10D available in a new narrower version
Rottne is now launching the thinning forwarder Rottne F10D in a new narrower version – while the power package Rottne F20D has been upgraded with even greater tractive force than before.
Rottne F10Dwas designed from the outset as a small and versatile forwarder ideal for working in dense thinning stands. Now there’s a new version available, which is only 2400 mm wide, and allows you to manoeuvre effortlessly when thinning – and perfectly matches the stand-operating thinning harvester Rottne H8D.
“The market for small machines is growing the whole time, so it feels fitting to be able to manufacture and produce this forwarder,” says Samuel Östling who works with technical sales support at Rottne.
The normal version of Rottne F10D has a width of 2580 millimetres, the new model will be 180 millimetres narrower and arrives at 2400. It may not sound much, 18 centimetres, but in the forest it can be crucial – and together with the 45 degree steering angle this means a huge difference.
“This machine moves effortlessly through the forest at the same time as it leaves less traces and narrower branch roads,” says Samuel.
“In addition, this width is a requirement on specific overseas markets, which of course, makes it attractive and interesting in these countries.”
The new narrower Rottne F10D is delivered with the wheel size 500/60×22.5 instead of 600/50×22.5 or 710/40×22.5. It also has narrower bunks. The load area is 3.6 m2.
“This will be a really good machine that will be an even better thinning partner to our harvester Rottne H8D,” adds Samuel.
