        Forward-er Thinking

        The future of forwarder technology is now, with Intelligent Boom Control. Loggers have been clamoring for intuitive boom control for 30 years, and this long-awaited breakthrough is finally available. The IBC technology significantly increases forwarder productivity and efficiency, while providing best possible fuel economy and boom lifetime. The boom is accurate, fast, and easy to operate, as the operator now controls the boom tip directly instead of controlling each of the independent boom joint movements manually. By eliminating unnecessary extra movements, IBC increases the life of boom structures and hydraulic cylinders.
