24 May 2017 | World premiere for a new forest machine from Eco Log

#EcoLog created a sensation at the last #ElmiaWood by presenting a study about the forwarder of the future. This time the company will offer far more down-to-earth news.

“We’ll be exhibiting a new machine ready for production,” says Daniel Majgren, chief marketing officer at Eco Log.

A lot has happened at the company over the past year that makes its presence at Elmia Wood extremely interesting. The beginning of 2016 saw the premiere of the harvesters in its new E Series and within just over three months the entire year’s production was reserved. The year ended with the presentation of the new forwarders in the same series.

At Elmia Wood on 7 to 10 June Eco Log will for the first time exhibit its complete E Series of harvesters and forwarders. Because the harvesters are already out working in the forests, contractors have already given their impressions of how they operate in real conditions.

Newly developed machines
The machines including their cabs are newly developed but are receiving most praise for their new engines. Eco Log has switched to Volvo for the E Series, gaining lower fuel consumption and better performance in the forest.

“Volvo Penta is responsive to our customers’ demands and is investing strongly in the forest industry. The brand is also known for its high level of service,” Majgren says.

For the same reason – good service at a high level – Eco Log is presenting a range of its own new services at the fair, all designed to increase efficiency and machine availability. More details will not be revealed until the fair. The same is true for the new machine, which is having its world premiere.

New part-owner
The biggest news, though, is surely that Eco Log gained a new part-owner at the start of 2017, the investment fund Accent Equity 2012. It will provide the financial muscle for Eco Log to continue renewing its machinery portfolio.

“Our owners want to see renewal and growth. We can only deliver that by offering forest contractors the right machines for the future,” Daniel Majgren concludes.
