Lower CO2 emissions and fuel consumption per cubic meter
Cristoph Wulf operates a 2019 Logset 8H GTE Hybrid harvester. CO2 emissions and how to lower them are hot topics everyone is talking about nowadays. When Wulf heard that the Logset 12H Hybrid was demonstrated near him, he jumped on the chance to go over to see and test drive it.
"When I got to drive it myself, I was excited about its performance. Furthermore, I knew that the hybrid would enable us to be more eco-friendly by lessening the CO2 emissions. Lower CO2 emissions also mean lower fuel consumption per cubic meter wood produced, which means significant savings. We initially bought the 12H, but it was a little too big for us even though it was a good machine to use. When the 8H GTE Hybrid was released, I immediately called Logset to get one for us and we could not be happier", Cristoph states and continues:
"With the hybrid machine I can work significantly more fluently. My effectiveness is overall better. The hybrid allows me to focus the power when and where it is most needed."
A common history of almost 25 years
Together with his father and brother, Cristoph Wulf runs a family business. For the past almost 25 years they have relied on Logset to be their partner. Their operations are focused on Brake in Nordrhein-Westfalen, which is in Central-Germany. At the moment of the interview they were working in Stadtwald Brake which is located close to their home.
"We started to use the Logset machines already in 1997 as the first machine was delivered to us. We have used the older generation machines up to the latest additions now. Currently, we have two model 8 harvesters, a 8H GTE harvester with the standard technology as well as the GTE as a hybrid. We will also get a further addition to the Logset family, when the next 8H is delivered to our premises in a few weeks", Wulf briefly describes their history with Logset.
Local support and innovative ever-improving technology
The machines must have a low downtime, or it becomes expensive for the entrepreneur. Cristoph finds it important that he has the access to local support whenever needed. There are problems with every machine of every brand, but it makes a difference how the problems are dealt with.
"We can rely on the quality and reliability of the Logset machines. Furthermore, Logset keeps developing the technology of the machines. Even though we are mostly in contact with the German support, I’ve learned to know that the Logset staff in Finland are really dedicated to their job. The Finns I have been in contact with are approachable and easy to work with. We appreciate the personal relationship we have with Logset and their down-to-earth attitude. It feels like we can go through thick and thin together."
Getting the best possible solutions
By the time Cristoph’s grandfather founded the company, the work was done with the help of horses and manual labour. They have since then moved on first to tractors and then to the specialized machines they are using today to run their business.
"I can only be pleased that the team behind the machines is this dedicated, so I can always feel at ease that we are getting the best possible solutions. I would definitely recommend Logset machines to anyone. We look forward to seeing what the future looks like when we continue to work together with this innovative company."
