Forestry award for Kronos

Just lately the corporate was awarded the 2022 Elmia Wooden Innovation Silver Award for its newest growth within the secure and environment friendly use of its trailers.

Good Stabilizer Management is a semi-automatic management system for the assist legs on the trailer, routinely reducing and adjusting them to make sure a degree platform for the crane to function from.

That is the third a part of the corporate’s drive to extend the productiveness of its merchandise by the usage of digital know-how.

Powered wheels

The first product is ‘Good drive’, a system which controls the pace of a powered trailer independently of the bottom pace of the tractor.

It’s set to drive the wheels at a pace 5% higher than the tractor and could also be used on trailers with both a friction drive to the wheels, or hydraulic hub motors. It routinely switches off at street speeds.

The system will join on to a Valtra’s inside CANbus software program to make sure that it really works easily together with the tractor’s engine and transmission.

Growth tip management

The second innovation which has received many plaudits is the Good Growth Management system.

With all three methods in place on a trailer, forwarding timber is alleged to turn into an amazing deal simpler and extra environment friendly.

In impact, the tractor and trailer mixture turns into the one automobile because the drive is distributed to all of the wheels when off street.

When amongst the reduce timber, it may be routinely stabilised and the crane operated with only one management lever.
