Agreement between two technology leaders expands heavy duty forest machines

The Austrian PALFINGER Group, through its subsidiary EPSILON Kran GmbH which specializes in truck-mounted timber and recycling cranes, has become the preferred supplier of loaders for Caterpillar’s cut-to-length forest machines. Caterpillar has already placed the first order for 50 units of the X120F already to be fitted on the new Forwarder model 584. Representatives of the companies agreed that it is “not just a good looking combination, but a truly promising one that will make it possible to gather the market share both companies expect.”

In addition to rapidly expanding users´ efficiencies and capabilities in very heavy duty forest machine applications, some of the unique features offered by EPSILON include EPSCOPE, a patented double telescope system with extension cylinder and protected hose routing to safeguard against branches, the EPSLINK patented link-rotor combination and the EPSLIGHT intelligent illumination system to light up the entire work zone. More information is available here .
