Rottne H11D is a very flexible Harvester for thinning and light final felling.

+ Low ground pressure

+ Bogie lift front and back

+ Powerful machine on a small scale

+ 5 different harvester heads

+ Comfort Line


Rottne H11D in 6 and 8-wheel designs, is an articulated-steered harvester for thinning and final felling. Powerful engine, hydrostatic transmission and articulated frame joint in the centre give Rottne H11D excellent off-road performance and precise tracking.

The harvester cab offers superb operator comfort and excellent visibility over the work area. The levelling cab with integrated cab suspension, Comfort Line, can be turned ± 90º and automatically follows crane slewing, but can also be controlled using separate joysticks.

The individual bogie lift makes the forwarder more flexible – for example in confined passages, wet or steep terrain and for moving between felling objects when chains are used.

ROTTNE H11 harvester with articulated steering works smoothly and agreeably and is superb on steep terrain and marshy ground.

The hydrostatic transmission with two mechanical gear stages works with a high tractive force and gives ROTTNE H11D excellent operating characteristics. This is further enhanced by the small turning radius that the machine requires and with the bogie lift on both axles.

CRANE - with unlimited opportunities

The harvester crane RC185 is especially designed and developed for the Rottne H11 range.

RC185 is a parallel crane that has a very powerful slewing base with tilt function and extremely high torque. The crane arms are available in two versions depending on the size of the head. In the standard design with a single telescopic arm, the range is a full 10.3 metres and with a smaller head and double telescopic arms the reach becomes 11.3 metres.

CAB - with comfort in focus

Ergonomic operator station with luxury comfort.

+ 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.


Rottne Xparts comprise

•  Crane: pumps & rotators

•  Control & measurement system: computers & levers

•  Hydraulics: pumps

•  Harvester head: saw & wheel motors

•  Transmission: pumps, motors, wheel motors, differentials, bogie boxes, hub reducers, transfer gearboxes and distribution boxes

Save money and boost technical utilisation (TU).

+ Lower service costs

+ More production time

+ Updated machine

+ Preventive service

+ Increased technical utilisation (TU)


Our extended service intervals mean you save a great deal of money as the service is less expensive and downtime for service is shorter – machines can then concentrate on production and with that boost technical utilisation (TU).

Longer service intervals result in servicing at 750-hour intervals instead of 500 hours – and apply to all models with FT4 and Stage V engines*. Extended service intervals presuppose service at our authorised service workshops in order for agreements and warranties to apply.


Besides the pure cost savings, you can also factor in around 86 hours that the machine can be in production instead of standing still for service. Furthermore, you have an accredited and trained mechanic that takes care of your machine and continuously ensures that it is equipped with the latest updates from the factory.


* Up to 1500 hours the service intervals are 100, 500, 1000 and 1500 hours. Followed by 750 operating hours, i.e. 2250, 3000 hours, etcetera.
