Joint felling demonstration by Pölkky and Ponsse

When Pölkky and the Finnish forest machine manufacturer Ponsse joined their forces and organised a felling demonstration at Sonkajärvi, Central Finland, there was no shortage of spectators.

In March, Pölkky Metsä and Ponsse organised a joint felling demonstration in Sonkajärvi, Central Finland. In addition to forest owners and contractors, the audience comprised of about 100 preschool children.

The demonstration was held at a four- hectare stand for final felling.

– Ponsse presented their newest harvesting equipment, and we demonstrated our skills. The day was a great success: the sun was shining brightly and there were over 150 visitors. In addition to forest owners and contractors, there were more than 100 pre-school children watching the demonstration.
