The most significant new feature on the machine front is so far being kept a secret, but one product is introduced in advanced – the new harvester head Komatsu C124. A productive harvesting head with four driven feed rollers.

Komatsu Forest will be in attendance at Elmia Wood to exhibit its entire range of products and services, and to meet customers from all over the globe.

All of the company's machines will make the trip, along with the majority of our heads. With regard to the machines, a major new feature is lined up, which is so far being kept a secret. New options will also be on display which contribute to increased productivity, lower fuel consumption and an enhanced driving experience.

In terms of services, the proactive service ProAct 2.0 will be demonstrated, with the fair set to serve as the stage for the presentation of a key update to the company's offering. The functions and new features of MaxiFleet will aslo be on display, all of which contribute to facilitating better planning, follow-up and optimisation of work activities.

One of the major new additions to the company's range, the Komatsu C124 head, is introduced ahead of the fair. The head is an updated version of the C123, with a fourth driven feed roller as the headline feature. The C124 is, like its predecessor, a versatile harvesting head that offers maximum productivity, quality and reliability. Naturally, the much-appreciated Constant Cut function and the multi-tree handling option remain. Moreover, there is a new option in the shape of head-mounted working lights.

Elmia Wood is one of the key events on Komatsu Forest's calendar and represents an important opportunity to meet customers, according to Annelie Persson, Communications Manager at Komatsu Forest.

"Elmia Wood is the world's largest forestry fair and is an important arena for us to participate in. We invest a lot into the fair and invite our customers from Sweden and all around the world to come and visit us," explains Annelie.

Komatsu Forest can be found at stand 860 in the fair area. The large stand will not only play host to the company's machines, but will also feature interactive elements and an activity that will challenge visitors' balancing skills. In the main tent, the services MaxiFleet, ProAct 2.0 and simulators will be displayed and visitors can browse the clothing and accessories available from the ProSelect Store. In addition, visitors will be given valuable tips and learn how to take a holistic approach to ergonomics and well-being during the working day. Last but not least, Komatsu Forest will offer visitors to the stand an entirely new kind of experience!
