Having worked together previously on several similar demonstrations, Ponsse and Rotochopper are once again teaming up to show why Ponsse forestry equipment sets the benchmark for operator comfort and consistent productivity, and why Rotochopper remains the market leader for converting wood waste into value-added products like biomass and landscape mulch.
During this exclusive event, PONSSE Ergo and ScorpionKing harvesters will fell, delimb, and cut the timber to length. The PONSSE Buffalo forwarders will bring the timer to road side, as well as collect the slash and load it into the Rotochopper grinders. Rotochopper equipment will grind the slash for use as biomass fuel.
“We always enjoy working with Ponsse because their company philosophy aligns very neatly with ours,”
said Monte Hight. “For over 40 years, Ponsse has remained remarkably focused in their products and services. In an industry characterized by mergers and acquisitions, Ponsse continues to focus on one market sector—forestry. Likewise, we at Rotochopper have kept our focus on equipment that turns waste into profit and factory-direct support that keeps our customers successful.”
Besides demonstrating a complete forestry operation, the event will showcase new product updates. “When you see the 2015 Ponsse models up close and in action, you can really see the level of customer feedback that we have incorporated to raise the bar on operator comfort and consistent productivity,” said Pekka Ruuskanen, President of Ponsse North America. “The new ActiveFrame for the Buffalo forwarder gives the operator a whole new degree of comfort and sense of control.”
The event is free and does not require pre-registration. A block of hotel rooms is reserved just minutes from the demo site; attendees can contact their Rotochopper or Ponsse representative to reserve accommodations. Lunch and refreshments will be served on site.
“It’s always exciting to work with companies that share our commitment to customer success through innovation and responsive support,”
said Ruuskanen. “This demo is about much more than turning trees into sellable timber and biomass fuel. It’s about demonstrating our commitment to the people we serve as equipment manufacturers.”
“So if you’re in forestry, land clearing, or other markets that process timber or wood waste, come to the demo and see how we can make your business more profitable,” added Hight.
