With a new developed Power pack that fulfil the emission requirements for EU Stage V and a new crane based on Cranabs technology for forwarder cranes, Slagkraft now launch the next generation system for efficient bush cleaning.

The Slagkraft system for bush clearing system consists of Power pack, crane, control system and mower. The new Power pack has the model name W180e and replaces the previous Power pack W17. The new crane that is introduced is based on Cranab’ s popular forwarder cranes with characteristics such as high reliability, protected routing of hoses and hydraulic cylinders and optimized geometry.


Major development changes 

"The background to the upgrade is that we have developed the new engine package to meet the emission requirements for EU stage V. We have also reviewed the entire engine package design as well as the crane in the project," says Håkan Bergh, Marketing Manager for Slagkraft within Cranab.

Caterpillar engine

The machine is powered by Caterpillar diesel-powered C4.4 engine that delivers 175 hp. It meets the current emission requirements, use lower fuel consumption and represents a performance improvement compared to the previous one.

Better visibility and stability

Beside the improved performance of the engine has the machine become better with an optimized crane solution that gives and better visibility and driving characteristics. "We have further developed and adapted the crane design and changed the location of the crane slew base on the machine frame. It provides better visibility while working and better stability thanks to a lower centre of gravity. We have received good feedback for this during the field tests we have done," says Håkan. "The visibility and stability of the machine are two of the most important parameters for working efficiently and ergonomically with bush clearing along roads and ditches," he continues.

Serial production started

Serial production of the new Power pack and crane started in February 2020 and are already available for immediate delivery.
