The PONSSE Wisent is an excellent all-round forwarder suitable for a range of tasks, from first thinning to regeneration felling. What is familiar from the previous model is the large load space, great driving geometry and high loading capacity in relation to net weight.

Features include the much increased engine performance, higher tractive force and the even more functional and maintenance-friendly structure, making daily refuelling and checks very easy. The cabin offers plenty of storage space, functional spatial solutions and even more high-quality materials.

The PONSSE Wisent is an excellent all-round forwarder suitable for a range of tasks, from thinning to regeneration felling. Thanks to excellent weight distribution and geometry, damage to soil is minimal and driving is easy also on dense and curvy thinning routes – the rear wheels follow the front wheels precisely so the driver can fully concentrate on work
