Watch the incredible heavy-duty PONSSE Bear harvester in action as it effortlessly cuts down, debarks and removes limbs from trees before cutting them into logs in the video below.
The PONSSE Bear harvester is the ultimate wood cutting solution, allowing a forester to do a day’s work without ever breaking a sweat. Equipped with the C6 sliding boom, the PONSSE Bear harvester is an excellent tool for working in areas with steep hills. Attached to the boom is the H8 harvester head, which is a powerful attachment that you can use in regeneration felling sites.
The 6-wheel PONSSE Bear is a workhorse and powerhouse that meets the demands of the most challenging work sites. It is built with a focus on efficiency, structural endurance, ease of use and maintenance. Designed with driver comfort in mind, the cabins offer ample storage space, excellent visibility and ergonomic controls. The C6 sliding boom is durable and flexible.
PONSSE developed the Bear to meet expressed concerns of customers such as the positioning of components and service points, and ease of maintenance. New engine technology enables PONSSE to increase service intervals from 600/1200 hours to 900/1800 hours, which translate into reduced operation costs and increased efficiency for those in the field.
A 6-cylinder Mercedes-Benz 350hp engine powers the Posse. The engine employs technology that reduces NOx and particulate emissions, which improves fuel economy, responds more quickly to sudden needs for power and contributes to a cleaner environment. Double-circuit hydraulics supply power to harvester head and crane, and new engine and transmission technologies enhance stability control. These improvements make the Bear safer and more efficient on steeper slopes than prior models.
