Silvatec is occupied with development, production, sale and service of timber harvesters and forwarders, harvesting heads and self-propelled wood chippers.
Throughout the company`s 30 years of our existence, Silvatec machines and technical solutions have been developed in closest cooperation with our customers and machine operators. This ensures that Silvatec products always incorporate the latest know-how and specialist knowledge under maximum consideration for the operators working conditions and for the minimal damage treatment of the forests. Together with our customers and research partners, we keep permanently anticipating new features and trends emerging by the forest machine industry and bring them into our product development roadmap to ensure a constant evolution of our machinery. With our program to develop the next generation of ECO Forestry Machinery in the years 2013-15, we have been awarded with the prestigious EUREKA label.
Over the last 30 years Silvatec became a sector-leading manufacturers of forest machines for timber harvesting in the cut-to-length method for most demanding areas, as well as the unrivalled expert for biomass chip production with the Silvatec Chipping Concept based on our self-propelled chip harvester.

Products & Services
"Sleipner" - The timber harvesting line
Sleipner is the strongest horse among both gods and humans in Nordic mythology and is easily recognized by its 8 legs. Even the master of all gods, Odin, chose Sleipner as his horse to face the most difficult challenges. In that spirit, the Silvatec Sleipner harvesters and forwarders have been designed and developed exclusively as 8-wheeled machine with a very low center of gravity and very narrow machine width, in order to make it exceptionally maneuverable in the forests, while still retaining its class-leading ground clearance. The Sleipners have been developed and refined over years in close cooperation with experienced forest operators in order to make each working day in the forest as pleasant and efficient as possible. Specifically the harvester is extremely versatile and is capable of a variety of different tasks, such as thinning, clear-felling, feller bunching, specifically when operating on steep slopes (up to 45?) and wet areas.
"Grane" - the biomass line
In Nordic mythology, Grane is Sleipners son and like the father, it is a similarly powerful fighting horse on eight legs, though in different battlesfields. Silvatecs Grane-line is dedicated to the growing field of bio-mass production directly in the forest. While tackling the specific requirements of chip production in yound stands, the machines rely in their main technical performance areas strongly on the proven concepts of Sleipner. The Grane self-propelling wood chippers in combination with a chip-forwarder are the spearheads of an industry-unique chipping concept, that is unrivalled now since almost 20 years. The unique industrial chipping concept is designed to deliver large quantities of chips for use as bio-fuel. In the most efficient and economical logistic setup to retrieve bio mass directly in the forest and deliver finished chips ready for road transport.
