- Model 242HVT - Tracked Harvester System



The tracked harvester 242HVT has all the benefits of the 242HV, enhanced by the proven tilt device and excellent gradability. The optionally offered dozer blade provides safety and permits the clearing of skid trails for subsequent removal of the logs.  Due to the hydraulically tilting service platform and cabin the harvester becomes even more serviceable.

By means of the optional long crane a machine range of up to 14m can be reached.

To address all requirements concerning the vast range of operating conditions, the 242 is also available with an optional crane which provides optimal working geometry and a longer reach. See the diagram to your left.


Leveling adjustment
The developed and often approved of, leveling system is also used on the 242. The large-dimension tilt cylinders makes leveling of +25° in forward direction and +/- 15° to each side possible.


Tail swing radius/Ground clearance
Because of the 242's extra-high ground clearance, obstacles such as stumps and rocks do not have to be driven around. Working in narrow spaces is easily done due to the short tail swing radius of the machine.
