Felix 6 WD special forestry hauler
The rear section is configured so that the wheel base can be hydraulically telescoped by 1,200 mm to create perfect conditions for working with both long and short timber.
The 6-wheel variant is used as short chassis for long timber handling, as combination chassis with telescoping rear section for short and long timber handling and as long chassis for forwarding.
More details on Felix 6-wheel
The new generation of the Felix special forestry tractors has a completely new, modern and efficient powertrain.
The new hydra2POWER combines the following features:
- powerful drive thanks to heavy duty components
- optimum traction due to permanent all-wheel drive and hydraulic longitudinal differential
- low fuel consumption thanks to modern wide angle hydraulic motors
- high degree of safety thanks to active parking control
- low maintenance costs
The hydra2POWER continuous traction drive – developed by Pfanzelt in-house – of the new Felix forestry tractor series consists of two powerful and large hydraulic pumps and motors. Each axle is thus assigned its own drive unit. No mechanical components that often require additional maintenance are required in this system. The heavy duty design of hydraulic components enables low engine revs even when driving on-road. The road cruising speed of 40 km/h is thus achieved at an engine speed of 1,600 rpm.
The permanent all-wheel drive and hydraulic longitudinal differential assure you of optimum traction and great flexibility. The driver is thus able to rely on full traction in all situations. When driving with chains or belts on only one axle, the front section of the vehicle does not lock with respect to the rear section. The result is less wear of tyres and vehicle combined with lower fuel consumption.
High efficiency and consequently low operating costs are made possible by the two 45° swivel angle hydraulic motors.
The electronic control of the traction drive allows the programming of application-specific driving characteristics. Depending on whether the vehicle is driving off or on road, acceleration, coasting during deceleration and active parking control are adjusted. The driver can thus manoeuvre precisely on steep slopes solely with the gas pedal.
The vehicle layout
In order to create ideal conditions for the work with long and short timber, the rear carriage was designed such that the wheelbase can be hydraulically telescoped by 1,200 mm. When handling long timber with a crane and clamping bench, the Felix 6-WD with short wheelbase is compact and manoeuvrable. If the situation arises that short logs also need to be loaded, the wheelbase can be extended hydraulically.
This forms a stanchion basket for transporting short timber. In contrast to other combination machines, the stanchion basket is located on the vehicle with a favourable centre of gravity. If a clamping bench is installed instead of the stanchion basket, it is also optimally positioned above the axle bogie.
Even on steep slopes, efficient and safe working is assured with the hydraulic height adjustment of the roller block.
Guide tubes for winch cables ensure the required protection of the cable winch unit right up to the cable infeed roller. The risk of the cable being damaged by the gripper is therefore excluded.
Permit for public roads
When considering the work process of a forestry machine, it is essential start the analysis at the yard and not leave until you are out in the wood. How the machine reaches the work location and how it travels from one work site to the next are also big factors in the overall economy. Does the forestry machine have to be brought to the location by a truck on a low loader or does it have a transmission system that also enables travel on public roads?
The Felix offers the flexibility of a vehicle concept that does not require any external aids to reach the work site or to change between work sites and is also suited for felling work in various working areas.
XXL – cab
The tractor cab developed by Pfanzelt with pneumatic suspension enable smooth and vibration-free operation.
The view over the working environment is further extended by 7 m2 of window area. The driver has an even better view of his working zone, this means less stress and increasing safety. The driver has a relaxed and ergonomic sitting and working position on the operator stand that can now can be turned through 350° by electric motor. The intelligent machine controller – which is operated via a monitor from the seat – also saves the individual preferred settings for different drivers.
The Pfanzelt XXL cab has been especially created with the demands of our customers in mind – low vibrations when working in standing timber yet with maximum comfort when driving on public roads.
All operating and monitoring functions are mounted on the seat and therefore always in the operator’s field of vision.
An additional control panel for on-road driving is provided next to the steering wheel. All key parameters are conveniently displayed in driver’s field of vision.
Unique in the forestry industry and essential for municipal use is the possibility to install a passenger seat in the driver’s cab as an option.
For forestry work, the steering column is simply and rapidly folded to one side.
The distribution of the vehicle components requires that the engine, transmission and the main hydraulic components are installed under the cab. In spite of this, all areas that have to be accessed in the Felix specialised forestry tractor for service work can be easily reached without tools via various special service openings. In addition to the ergonomic one-man system for hydraulically opening and closing the vehicle floor plates, the cab, for example, can be hydraulically tilted open. Additional service hatches at the entrances provide side access.
