HX-Modular harvester / User & ground friendly modul

HX-Modular harvester
HX-Modular harvester

HX is a compact, modular system for the future forest industry.Research showed, through talking to users and producers of forestry machines, 3 main problems. 1. The ground damage due to the size and weight of the machine, 2. injuries and downtime during maintenance and 3. a problem finding people interested in a work environment, where it is cold, dirty and dark.Therefore HX is a modular system, which can be either locked to a harvester or a forwarder module, while reducing the weight and size due to being remotely supervised by the operator from a comfortable workstation.To reduce injuries HX offers a garage like environment for maintenance.
