Transport of energy wood and logs in Imatra
Under his own trade name, Seppo Knuuttila has transported logs and energy wood, as well as performed lumberjack work, ploughing and stump grinding in the Imatra area since 2005. The main activity is specifically the transport of logs and energy wood, for which Knuuttila uses a Valtra 214 Versu tractor equipped with a KESLA 144HD forest trailer and 316T loader. Log transport customers include the City of Imatra with its subsidiaries and Stora Enso.
From KESLA to KESLA
Knuuttila’s previous forest package also featured the KESLA brand: the 12HD trailer and the 305T loader. Knuuttila was very satisfied with his package, but he wanted to change it before larger renovations.
- “I myself don’t have a hall, so I want the professionals to service the tractor. There has been no need for large renovations. Since I have logged many hours already in professional use and wanted to switch to electric control, I decided to renew the loader-trailer package while renewing the tractor.”
It probably helped that he was able to buy the forest package and the Unlimited equipped tractor from the same local AGCO Finland dealer, Jarkko Hirvi.
The combination is crowned by the double stage KESLA 316T loader, whose reach is an impressive 8,8 metres. The loader features the electronic Walvoil DPX valve with the KESLA proC control system. The control system enables control adjustment for up to five people. Saving settings is useful also in a one-man company, because the settings for different kinds of work – such as, for example, energy wood or round timber – can be saved.
