SP has exhibited it´s line of harvester heads on four exhibitions during the period June-August with a very successful result! The exhibitions ordered in time was the KWF in Germany, SkogsNolia in Sweden, Forexpo in France and finally the FinnMetko in Finland. Below follows a short resume from each exhibition.
Eurologging, who is the European distributor of Timberpro, showed a harvester with the powerful SP 591 LX harvester head. Previously they have used the mighty and strong SP 761 LF head with big success. The fact that Eurologging considers the SP 761 LFto be the best harvester head they ever worked with attracted a lot of visitors to the SP stand to gather for more information. Besides Timberpro, SP was also represented on carriers from machine manufacturers Gremo and WF Trac.

The fact that we are cooperating with Komatsuforest sales company in Sweden, Swelog, and through them supply SP harvester heads to new Valmet carriers seem to have spread to the northern parts of Sweden and SkogsNolia. The fact that also Rottne showed a H14 harvester with a SP 451 LF was also heavily contributing to the increased interest for SP. We are very happy for the newly started co operation with Rottne and hope for big success in the years to come.

Our new and top modern all-round harvester head SP 561 LF seemed to attract people regardless of nationality. Maybe not so strange since it is packed with interesting solutions and offers a very high level of technology. The SP 561 LF is scheduled for sales start in Oktober this year. The launch on the web will be done in the same period so keep your eyes open for more on this.
After the SkogsNolia we proceeded to the Forexpo in France. We joined Timberpro distributor Eurologging and their dealer Scantrax. The combination of the powerful Timberpro carriers and the robust and high performing SP harvester headswas definitely a crowd pleaser. A big thank you to Eurologging and Scantrax for an interesting exhibition with a lot of new contacts.
On the FinnMetko it was time for our new dealer Moisio Forest to show the SP line of harvester heads for the Finnish contractors, and showed it they surely did! Both the SP staff as well as Moisio staff was amazed with the amount of interest we attracted. Both because of the fact that there is a lot of manufacturers of harvester heads located in Finland but also for the fact that SP is a relatively unknown brand in Finland. However it turned out that the Finnish contractors are very alike their Swedish colleagues and also they appreciated the intelligent LF design and the high level of technology that we offer.
SP was also represented in the stand of Volvo with the, for excavators suitable, harvester heads SP 591 LX and SP 761 LF. Volvo showed their full line of Forestry equipment with forestry converted excavators and the famous electric powered ELFOREST forwarder among other machines.Volvo had invited SP to exhibit harvester heads to show the possibility of converting excavators to highly productive harvesters.
A big thank you to Jukka Moisander, Director of Volvo Forestry, for a successful exhibition with a lot of contacts.
