New Larger Logset Forwarder Launched
The new Logset 10F forwarder made its international debut this fall when the Finland-based company and its UK dealer, RJ Fukes Forestry Services, brought the machine to APF 2010, the UK’s largest forestry, woodland and arboricultural show which this year attracted 16,700 visitors.
“Despite the challenging times facing the industry, we have continued to invest in our research and development and the new Titan 10F is the result of our efforts,” explains Pasi Nieminen, Logset’s managing director. “The 10F with a load capacity of 18 tonnes, will complete our Titan line of forwarders, which also includes four other machines ranging in load capacity from 10 tonnes to 15 tonnes.”
The 10F features the new Logset TOC control system, which provides optimal fuel economy and maximum productivity. The TOC system offers versatile driver settings and controls the machine’s main functions, such as the engine, crane, transmission, lights, air conditioning and cruise control, along with some optional functions such as computers, cameras, central lubrication and a mobile phone controlled engine heater.
“Robustness and reliability were optimized in the design and structural integrity of the Titan 10F,” adds Nieminen. “These machines have been built with worldwide markets in mind, including the harsh conditions found in Canada and the United States, Northern Europe, Russia and Latin American.”

Bandit Model 3090 Offers Track Option
High production chipping just got easier with the new Bandit Industries Model 3090 Track, a self-propelled version of the popular Model 3090 drum-style whole-tree chipper.
“The 3090 is already an extremely capable machine,” said Bandit Industries marketing manager Jason Morey. “Adding a self-propelled option extends this capability to remote, difficult-to-reach terrain where towable chippers can’t go.”
Power options include Caterpillar, Cummins or John Deere diesel engines, ranging from 535 to 630 horsepower. The 3090 Track can accept material up to 24 inches in diameter, and combined with a stationary high-flow discharge system, it can produce as much as 80 tons of chips per hour.
Bandit offers the Model 3090 Track with an optional built-in loader and cab, featuring hydraulic or electronic joystick controls.
