What modern lumberjack robots are capable of: Ponsse H7

The ancient profession of a lumberjack assumed the presence of masculine strength and dexterity. All these qualities, but only on a completely different level, are inherent in the automatic sawmill Ponsse H7 manufactured by the well-known Finnish company Ponsse.

This ultra-modern complex sequentially performs several operations - it carefully cuts down a tree, removes bark and branches, and then turns the processed trunks into logs of a certain length, spending a few seconds on everything.

Ponsse is an 8-wheeled thunderstorm of trees. It is equipped with a 6-cylinder Mercedes engine with a capacity of 286 horsepower, creating a torque of 1150 N / m. Unique cross-country ability is provided by 26.5-inch tires. Its main operating mechanism is an 11m hydraulic arm crane with versatile mobility.

At its end is a multifunctional harvester harvester, consisting of a built-in 60 hp chainsaw. from. easily cutting trees with a diameter of 65 cm. After the tree has been cut, the harvester controls its position with a secure grip. Then the feed rollers come into play, sending the tree for further processing, the nature of which is determined by the operator from the cab.

Ponsse's productivity is 15 meters of processed wood in 20 seconds. The whole process is controlled by an operator using a software package. In addition to technological operations, the complex provides wireless communication with the office to control the amount of wood to be processed. You can also control the work of the combine from a smartphone equipped with a special application.
