270 Series

This ELTEC short tail swing tracked, feller-buncher is designed and purpose-built to deliver high productivity, consistent with the demands of a 7 day-a-week, selective harvesting or final felling applications. The ELTEC 270 Series is powered by an industry leading, highly fuel efficient Cummins diesel engine and an enhanced for forestry hydraulic system. Operator comfort and safety are key highlights of this feller-buncher as it features the newly designed, extremely operator friendly ELTEC Forestry Cab. Machines in the ELTEC 270 Series are also available in a harvester configuration complete with a long-reach harvester boom and arm and dedicated harvester hydraulics.
