Forest Master Turbo

Usewood Forest Master Turbo even more powerful than before.

With Usewood Forest master Turbo small forestry has became more powerful and efficient than ever. Getting it's energy from Kubota V1505T turbo diesel engine and hydraulics driven by Bosch Rexroth 0-130 l variable displacement pump, Forest Master Turbo provides double power and 20% more hydraulic oil compared to it's predecessor. When working with UW180S harvester head, this extra power makes handling heavy logs with big branches smoother than ever.

No matter what time of year or what kind of terrain you work, Usewood Forest Master is ready to work with you. Tough job in young forests can be done easier, productively and in comfort. Using Forest Master you will step in a new era of forestry.

Light and small harvester can be transported on a sedan trailer. This minimizes the transportation costs as lorry or truck is not needed. The machine moves also easily and gently in full density young forests leaving hardly any tracks. With low fuel consumption, user friendly controls, easy maintenance and transportation, efficiency, to name a few, the Usewood Forest Master is perfect machine for young forest management.


With a 0 to 130 l / min variable displacement pump and load sensing Bosch Rexroth LUDV valves the Usewood Forest Master's hydraulic system is as modern as can be. The system takes care that all parallel movements are always maneuvered with the driver's desired speed. Multiple simultaneous movements do not slow each other down. The load sensing hydraulic system works with a great efficiency, minimizing the already small fuel consumption of Usewood Forest Master.

Usewood RECS control system

Advanced hydraulics need an advanced control system to take use of 100% of their capacity. Usewood Forest Master operates with 7 different individual controller modules connected together with the industry's standard CAN-bus to control hydraulic pump, valves, motor, power consumption, driver controls, cabin peripherals and harvester head. Dividing responsibilities among controllers also divides the risks for system failures and reduces downtime in case of a system fault. With intelligent power control, Usewood Forest Master can control the motor and hydraulic pump as efficiently as possible to provide faster movements and move power to the crane and harvester head.

When developing the machine, we wanted to keep the reliability of the electrical system the top priority. That's why most of the controllers are our own design, made specifically for Usewood Forest Master. By developing our own controllers with our own software, we can be sure that the machine is build with a good quality electrical components and the software is easy and fast to maintain, and also the price tag of the machine stays low.


We wanted to design a machine that is as easy and reliable to use as possible. As young forests have big tree densities and the plants need to be left undamaged, it is important for the machine to have a precise crane. That's the reason why we redesigned the whole crane with stronger structure and bigger joints to sustain the young forest environment's demanding challenges. With the aid of the Usewood Forest Master's control system the driver can adjust the crane to operate just the way as he/she wants.


We believe that when working long days, operator comfortability is one of the most important things. That is why we didn't make any compromises when designing the Usewood Forest Master's cabin. Our machines are industry's only machines in their size which provide good visibility, heating and compressor air conditioning as a standard.


With all technical improvements we also redesigned the looks of the machine. But not only for visual purposes. By making the front and back bonnet from plastic they endure much more scratches and hits than before and are very cheap to renew to make an old machine look as good as new.
