Company explores new territory with heavy-duty forestry machines

Volvo announced its foray into forestry with the introduction of three new forestry machines. The three models – the 26-ton EC210 BFX, the 31-ton Volvo EC 240 BFX, and the 36-ton Volvo EC 290 BFX – have been engineered to meet the needs of the international forestry industry. In the Volvo FX range, the F denotes Forestry and the X represents the Heavy Duty attributes of these machines. The FX range comes in three configurations: harvesters and processors, log loaders and general forestry units. Operator comfort and safety were central to the design of these machines as they come with many features to ensure both.
