Top model the Airstream Rock by David Dominicus zoom

David Dominicus—Booth B6.127

The most widespread cause of accident in the forest is stumbling and slipping on smooth wet wood. In such situations, ordinary soles only provide insufficient grip. Meindl has responded to these new requirements and designed a completely new sole. The black outer rim is hard and sharp-edged and provides optimum grip. As in the case of winter tires, integrated movable slats ensure good contact with the ground. The inner sole area consists of a soft rubber mix, which also forms the strong bridge profiling. The latter provides good lateral grip without limiting the rollover behavior. As of now, the new sole developed by Meindl is used in all forestry safety shoes. Meindl’s top model, the Airstream Rock, even has one additional feature: the shoe sole (here orange-colored) contains incorporated aluminum splinters that bite themselves into the wood like a wire brush.

One of the highlights is the Q-Series (Onroad) of the Next Epsolution model range. With up
to 10 percent weight reduction compared to
the predecessor series, the Q17Z crane belongs to the lightest cranes in its class. Thanks to the completely new designed armsystem with new geometry, the crane offers up to 11m outreach (= the longest reach in its class). Moreover, special attention was paid to the serviceability of the crane. Hence, there is no more hose package between main boom and crane base, which reduces the risk of damaging the hoses in daily use.

Sling systems by Grube KG zoom

Grube KG—Booth B6.127

Since March 1, 2018, there is a new, separate standard for the ground traction mode in the forest. Up to know, slings—including those used in the forest—were subject to the provisions for the lifting range with the definitions of the Working Load Limit (WLL). As a result, overly heavy slings were frequently required, but rarely used. The present changes apply to all slings used behind cable winches, such as pulleys, tree towing ropes and round slings. The new standard regulates security factors, markings and user instructions to be affixed in a uniform manner. The definitions now applicable to the ground traction mode in the forest are referred to as Forest Tractive Force (FTF). At the booth of the Grube company, complete, matched sling systems will be presented (these slings can be seen at the KWF [Board of Trustees for Forestry Work and Technology] at the same time). A special highlight is a uniform color code, which signals to the user im-mediately, and unambiguously which slings are compatible with each other and which system the user must choose in relation to the maximum traction force of their cable winch.

Neo-HV wood log boiler zoom

Hargassner GmbH—Booth FS.1011/13

The Neo-HV wood log boiler has been developed and optimized based on the 1/2M wood log gasifier HV that comes in a new outfit, in addition to presenting new refinements. From the technological viewpoint, the new combustion control is one of the greatest innovations. The integrated induced draft housing with state-of-the-art EC motor ensures high electricity saving and energy efficiency. Moreover, there is another highlight in the pellet product line: as of now, the Nano-PK6-15.3 has two additional flue tube connections at the side and at the rear. This series is also available as Nano-PK PLUS—“PLUS” meaning + condensing boiler technology. By means of an additional Niro condensation heat exchanger, the temperature is reduced below the condensation point and condenses out again. The gained heat and the reduction of the exhaust gas temperature achieve a degree of efficiency that is higher by up to 10%, which leads to lower heating costs. Moreover, this condensation heat exchanger can be upgraded at any time.

Uniaxial chassis HM 8-400 KFL zoom

HEIZOMAT Gerätebau- Energiesysteme GmbH—Booth open-air site FS.1011/33 / B6.329

Based on the tried and tested uniaxial chassis of the HM 8-400 KFL, it is now possible to equip also the HM 8-500 K with a loading crane and a drawbar. The four-finger energy wood grab HEIZOGREIF HG 1000 is ideally suited for use in combination with the Palfinger Epsilon C60F84 loading crane, which has a range of 8.40 m. With an opening width of 1.021 mm, the grab is very well suited to feed the HM 8-500 KFL wood chipper. The machine has a feed width of 708 mm and a maximum feed height of 800 mm. Thanks to the great oscillating weight in the ejection tube, the machine can be operated with relatively little effort. It is fuel efficient and puts little strain on the tractor. A new component is the drawbar which is adjustable to variable trailer heights. This drawbar has been specially developed for the HM 8-400 KFL machine and can now be used for other chippers as well. The robust, clearly arranged and maintenance-friendly HEIZOHACK wood chipper HM 8-500 KFL is the ideal entry-level machine for customers who intend to chop wood in a professional way.

Polycarbonate composite panes zoom

KRD Sicherheitstechnik GmbH—Booth: B6.303

If the sawing chain breaks, the conditions in the cabin of a harvester may become extremely unpleasant: being hit by a ragged chain link has the same effects as being hit by a pistol bullet. Conventional silicate glass and safety glazing made of plastic (polycarbonate) are not robust enough to protect against such an impact—at least not the mono panes that have been used so far. In terms of cutting-edge safety technology, the technology leader KRD now offers polycarbonate composite panes, as they are known, in which (at least) two of these plastic “life insurances” for forest workers are firmly attached to each other. These panes respond in a clearly more flexible way to hefty impacts than simple mono panes and thus can neutralize the impact of a sawing chain link, among other things.

Electric rope crane series ECKO zoom

Koller Forsttechnik GmbH—Booth FM.709/2

The electric rope crane series ECKO comprises three performance levels developed for different application options. If it is merely about lifting objects uphill, ECKO UP offers an ideal price/performance level. By using our ECKO FLEX version, it is possible to lift objects uphill and downhill. With a bearing load of approximately 2 tons, it is suited to perform the most diverse tasks. ECKO BOOST, which is in the upper performance range, has a bearing load of approximately 4 tons and is therefore suitable for large-dimension timber. All electric rope cranes by Koller Forsttechnik are equipped with supercaps which are extremely durable and work reliably even at very low temperatures.

Eight-wheel thinning harvester zoom

Komatsu Forest GmbH—Booth FM.711/5

With the Komatsu 901XC Harvester, Komatsu Forest presents the eight-wheel thinning harvester to the German public for the first time. The eight wheels ensure outstanding stability and excellent all-terrain mobility, besides causing only little ground pressure and therefore noticeably less damage to the soil. Due to the central arrangement of the crane and the cabin on one joint platform, the ground pressure is distributed, thereby achieving a low center of gravity. As far as the harvesters of the XC series are concerned, the swing rear axle of the six-wheel harvester is combined with a bogie, which leads to a unique double-swing bogie, making light work of rough terrain: the Komatsu Comfort Bogie.

Portable sawmills zoom

Logosol GmbH—Booth FM.713/3

Logosol F2 is the newest chain sawmill among the Logosol portable sawmills. It is developed and manufactured in Sweden. It can process trunks with a diameter of up to 60 cm without any problems. Stihl MS391, or the more powerful Stihl MS661, are suitable chainsaws for the F2 chain sawmill. Of course, other chainsaw brands are suited as well. It only takes a few minutes to mount and build up the chain sawmill in the yard or forest. F2 allows you to realize your own construction projects, ranging from seat benches and raised garden beds to woodsheds through to beautiful wood for carpenters, directly on site. This is possible due to the anodized aluminum structure, which is so light that it can be moved manually. The framework consists of one-meter sections that fit into the luggage compartment of a standard vehicle.

Sensomatic chain sharpener by Markusson zoom

Markusson AB—Booth B6.127

The sharpening of sawing chains is a time-consuming job, particularly for workshops or forest enterprises. The automatic Sensomatic chain sharpener manufactured by Markusson may make work much easier for those who have to re-sharpen chains regularly. This device combines easy handling perfectly with robust technology and good sharpening results. As a new feature in sharpening tools of this type, the Sensomatic chain sharpener recognizes the left and right cutting teeth of a chain automatically. Time-consuming re-clamping is a thing of the past. The chain can be sharpened over its entire length in a single run. As its predecessor, Markusson Sensomatic simultaneously reworks the depth limiters and the tooth depth. Here, too, re-clamping has become superfluous. According to the manufacturer, additional technical advantages are the pre-installed air-cooling with compressor connection, an arrangement for the suction of chips by means of a vacuum, and lighting. The chain is clamped by means of air pressure.

Protective Trousers by Profiforest zoom

Profiforest—Booth B6.127

Wild Boar Protective Trousers
A few severe accidents in the past have led the KWF [Board of Trustees for Forestry Work and Technology] and the Trade Association Good and Hospitality [Nahrungsmittel und Gastgewerbe—BGN] to establish a testing principle for wild boar protective trousers jointly. Now, wild boar protective trousers can be subjected to EC type testing for the first time ever, and are thus part of the PPE personal protective equipment. The testing procedure with a testing tooth made of steel is demonstrated at the exhibition booth of the KWF. Apart from EC type testing, the KWF offers a “function & comfort” test for wild boar protective trousers. The Nordforest wild boar protective trousers passed both tests with very good results. A unique feature is the protection insert made of specially woven and cut-resistant material incorporated in the security-relevant places of the trousers, as described by the standard. One layer of this material is already sufficient to ensure the promised protection. In addition to the protective material, the trousers incorporate a spacing fabric as an impact protection.

Protection Cut-Trousers with Waistband for Women
A woman who has ever handled a motor saw knows this problem: cut-protection trousers are generally only available for men. Version for women made according to a feminine dressmaking pattern. Of course, the trousers are also water- and dirt-repellent, extremely tear-proof and equipped with protecting Cordura trimmings. At the same time, they offer highest wearing comfort and safety because of the use of stretch as an upper material and the five-layer cut-protection. Inside gaiter at the trousers’ seam as a tick protection, rear leg ventilation with zipper, two lateral pockets and one back pocket with zipper.

Aircraft drones zoom

Quantum-Systems GmbH—Booth B6.104

The products TRON and TRINITY by Quantum-systems GmbH are innovative aircraft drones that start, fly and land automatically. They are purely electrically driven and capable of vertical take-off. By combining the advantages of both flight systems (helicopter + airplane) in one aerial vehicle, it is a huge advantage, particularly in forestry, to be able to start and land within a very confined space and then, after the transition phase in level flight, to have the aerodynamic efficiency of an airplane and fly over large forest areas. TRINITY is the most compact VTOL Fixed-Wing UAV (vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial vehicle) in the world.

Mobile sawmills zoom

SERRA Maschinenbau GmbH—Booth FM.713/4

As Germany’s first manufacturer of mobile sawmills, SERRA Maschinenbau GmbH presents the success model ME 110. The high-powered block-belt saw weighing nearly 3.5 t can be transported in a passenger car and is the only hot-dip galvanized one in the market. A great number of technically mature hydraulic functions ensure the moving and fixing of the trunk and the finished cut timber. The powerful engine of the 120 mm wide sawing blade allows sawing trunks of up to 110 cm in diameter to any dimensions. In this way, it has been possible to triple the positioning speed. Another new feature is that the joystick control is configurable and instantly switchable, which makes sawing using a mobile sawmill even more comfortable.

Trejon Försäljning AB—Booth FS.911/1

The two double-frame models MF 120 and MF 140 will be replaced by the models MF 1602 and MF 1802 as of this summer. With load area cross-sections of 3 and 3.4 square meters, respectively, the trailers offer a large loading space which is four meters long even for the basic version and can be extended to five meters. The flap-down support legs give the trailer additional stability in combination with cranes with a reach of up to 9 meters. The design of the drawbar of the new models is completely new. Moreover, all four wheels are braked as standard. If the new wheel hub drive is ordered, the new model series can be equipped with Tejon’s high pressure control system which makes it possible to get maximum thrust out of the Black Bruin motors used.

TST Junior rope device zoom

TST Seilgeräte Tröstl GmbH—Booth FM.709/12

The TST Junior rope device for tractors, which has won the innovation prize, has a modular structure, requires little space and is available at a fair price. It is possible to start with the basic version; an upgrade is possible at any time. This means, for example, that a pure uphill version can subsequently be equipped with a return rope unit. As a result, the device can be used for downhill operations, too. A power take-off shaft powers the device, and it is sufficient if the tractor has 100 hp, although more horsepower is preferable. Equipped with radio remote control and radio choker, this system can be operated by not more than two workers, which leads to an increase in productivity.

Stationary LX 450 narrow-belt sawmill zoom

Wood-Mizer GmbH—Booth FM.712/8

With the stationary LX 450 narrow-belt sawmill, Wood-Mizer is the only manufacturer who can now also offer a double-rail system, apart from the tried and tested unilateral head duct. In addition to the great number of features by which the models of the LT40 and LT70 series are equipped, the LX series extends the performance capabilities of the professional Wood-Mizer saws. The basic structure of this model series is heavier and more robust. Since the saw is stationary, its weight does not have to be considered; weight is always the limiting factor for mobile saws, which, however, remain free from sawdust deposits. The struts are higher than the lateral frame, which makes it easier to load a trunk using a forklift instead of the hydraulic loading arms.

TITAN 42/20 Boothard firewood processor zoom

Zieglmeier Hydraulik oHG—Booth FM.713/6

The new TITAN 42/20 Boothard firewood processor is small, light and can be connected to a tractor with 80 hp. Featuring a splitting power of 200 kN (20 t), it is suitable for splitting wood with a diameter of up to 42 cm. The control is fully electrohydraulic, and all functions are operated by means of an electronic control lever (joystick), which makes handling easier. The piston stroke can be set as required. It can be adjusted to the length of the wood billets, which shortens the splitting cycle by approx. 40 percent and reduces energy consumption. The trunk is sawn to a length of 25, 33, 40 or 50 cm by means of a strong and durable harvester blade, the size of the billets depending on the selected splitting wedge. The conveyer belt can be adjusted by 15° to the right and to the left. Special relieving springs (patented solution) facilitate folding and unfolding, thus causing less strain for the user.
