Moritz Fr70/75 mini felling tractor – Second generation

Moritz Fr70/75 mini felling tractor – Second generation

In 2016, the Moritz revolutionised the mini felling tractor concept for forestry applications. The two new models have stayed true to the original concept while significantly advancing in terms of their technology.

They link tried-and-tested mini felling tractor elements with the demands to powerful, multipurpose minitractors.

The vehicle might not have changed visually, yet technologically the compact, powerful Moritz mini felling tractor has undergone a major overhaul.

The Moritz as a caterpillar in pre-delivery

If the back alley distances are too large, increased soil protection is necessary due to demanding soil conditions or if the grounds cannot be driven on with large forest machines for logging for other reasons, then rear crawlers are used. The new series of the Moritz forest tractor impresses with a rope winch pulling force of up to 7.2 t and a low ground pressure.

More output for your needs

On a purely visual basis the new models continue with the characteristic Moritz mini felling tractor design, yet technologically the vehicles have evolved significantly.

The new 4-cylinder DEUTZ engines generate a high torque (max. 260 Nm) and now boast 36.4 or 55.4 kW. The powerful Common Rail injection system and highly efficient combustion featuring cooled, external exhaust gas recirculation guarantees maximum engine performance as well as low fuel consumption and emission values. The water-cooled 4-cylinder in-line engine featuring cooled, external exhaust gas recirculation is installed in the Fr75 and Fr50 models without turbocharging.

The new engine categories in conjunction with the powerful hydraulics system and the additionally available, mechanical PTO enable operation of demanding attachments and cable winches with high tractive force.

High-spec hydraulics

The hydraulics system consists of three separate systems for drive mode, on-board and performance hydraulics. This separation opens up new dimensions for all three systems.

  • Driving hydraulics | 2x 11 kW
  • On-board hydraulics | 18 l/min, 200 bar, 6 dual action control units
  • Performance hydraulics | 96 l/min, 300 bar with multi-coupler

The working hydraulics now offer up to four proportional and two black/white, double-action functions which can all be operated simultaneously using the remote control.

Full power, more fuel-efficient

The Moritz Fr70/75 mini felling tractor features a CLEANFIX reversible fan as standard. This guarantees the system always generates the maximum air flow and pressure to efficiently cool and thoroughly clean.

More convenient operation for more output

For accessing the felling zone or forwarding as well as mulching, the proportional drive supports two speeds. The maximum speed is 6.0 km/h.

A drift setting to compensate for the downgrade force when mowing across a slope can be preset to guarantee convenient processes. The final speed can additionally be gradually adjusted.

The wide running gear and the low deadweight of the caterpillar create a low ground pressure of only 0.28 / 0.33 kg/cm² and thus protect the substrate to cause no issues on wet ground.

Thanks to a front slope angle of 50° and a rear slope angle of 40°, the mini felling tractor can easily make the transition from forest tracks into standing timber. The ample ground clearance of 320 mm allows the tractor to easily pick its way over roots and stumps and to manoeuvre on forwarding trails.

New drive dimension

The running gear width of the Moritz Fr70/75 can be adjusted to achieve the optimum width for both transport and off-road operations. The running gear can be hydraulically widened by 400mm. This means that the mini felling tractor can also be safely operated on slopes.

The running gear with a length of 1,650 mm is available for special applications in two configured widths: 250 and 300 mm.

Always under tension

The new, automatic belt guide via a hydraulically tensioned double guide wheel prevents the belts from jumping off even on uneven terrain or when driving over obstacles.

Simple transport

The machine’s dimensions and weight of 1.4 metric tons without attachments enable straight-forward and quick transport on a car trailer.

In control of all functions

Control and monitor all mini felling tractor functions using the completely new, ergonomic remote control. Functions include drive and cable winch speed adaptations as well as drive and cable winch control. If the vehicle is not needed for a short time, the engine can also be stopped or started via the remote control.

It is also possible to conveniently control any third-party attachments using the remote control for the Moritz.

Powerful winch

The Moritz can be equipped with a professional-specification geared cable winch generating a tractive force of 5.0 to 7.2 metric tons and providing a maximum cable capacity of 110 m for felling, forwarding or pre-bundling applications.

Proportional cable speed in both directions allows adjustment to different work situations.

For tidy cable winding, the cable winch can be equipped with a cable infeed brake.


The stacking shield is the basis for all winching work. It has been equipped with double-action hydraulic cylinders. If the weight of the mini felling tractor is not sufficient for winch operations, it can be additionally secured to another object (for example a tree) within a very short time.

The cable infeed height of the mini felling tractor is variable. The cable winch has been integrated into the stacking shield to be able to provide variable cable infeed heights.

Stowage space

The Moritz offers a large, lockable storage bin, several storage areas and a bracket for a chainsaw. Use them to neatly store chainsaws, fuel canisters and lashing straps.

Multipurpose unit

In addition to an installed cable winch at a favourable centre of gravity the Moritz boasts so many more functions to make it suitable for use as an off-road carrier vehicle. The cable winch, installed using a quick-change system, can be removed in only a few steps. It only takes a single person a few minutes to complete the procedure thanks to the excavation device. You can then mount tools to the vehicle using the three-point hitch (cat. 1).

Pfanzelt professional equipment for flexible application:

  • Forestry mulchers with oscillating, Y-shaped flails (optionally with hydraulic front flap and hydraulic lateral adjustment)
  • Forestry milling tool MAX with fixed tools, hydraulic front flap and chain guide (optionally with hydraulic lateral adjustment)  Read more
  • Sowing strip mulcher Read more
  • Planting machine Read more

Using the category 1 three-point hitch at the front and rear it is possible to attach other standard equipment made by third-party manufacturers to the Moritz.

Optimum weight distribution – as a remote-controlled implement carrier and as a mini forestry tractor

In addition to a cable winch which is installed on the vehicle with a favourable centre of gravity, the Moritz can be used multifunctionally as an off-road carrier vehicle. The cable winch, which is mounted using a quick-change system, can be dismantled in just a few steps. After that, implements can be attached to the vehicle via the threepoint linkage (Cat. 1).

Mechanical PTO

The Moritz’s mechanical PTO is unique on the market within forestry and mulcher minitractors. It is directly driven without hardly any loss and thus highly efficient in application. In combination with the universally suitable cat. 1 three-point hydraulics the Moritz is transformed into a multipurpose minitractor.

Multifunctional front installation space

Moritz is compatible with the right equipment for any application. Consequently, the vehicle features a second installation space at the front. The front power lift generates a maximum lifting force of 7 kN and can additionally also be equipped with a top link point.

Safety and lighting

Attach auxiliary headlights to the Moritz in two positions to ideally light up the working area.

Folding roll bars can also be equipped with an auxiliary headlight that is switched on and off using the remote control.
