With its load-carrying capacity of 13 tons, PONSSE Elk is a powerful tool, which feels smaller thanks to its agility. Its economical engine and large fuel tank increase the refuelling interval. It is safe to say that Elk is an excellent machine for thinning sites where the machine needs to cover long distances.

A long bogie, a new bogie option designed for harvesting in soft conditions, is available for 8-wheeled models of PONSSE Wisent, Elk, Buffalo and Buffalo King. The long bogie reduces the ground pressure of a track-based machine significantly compared to a standard bogie.
