ELTEC SL317B Shovel Logger


When the trees get bigger, so does the ELTEC 317 Series Shovel Logger, designed to meet the demands of a 7-day-a-week work schedule. Whether used for selective harvesting or final felling, this machine is powered by an industry-leading, fuel-efficient engine and an enhanced hydraulic system, tailored to the needs of forestry work.

The ELTEC 317 Series offers superior stability with its long wheelbase and additional counterweight. The boom system allows the operator to extend and retract the boom on a horizontal plane with ease, using a single joystick.

We manufacture the 317 Series with well-engineered structures and the highest quality materials available, ensuring a durable machine with an excellent capacity-to-weight ratio. It is available in either a harvester or buncher configuration, complete with boom and arm options tailored to customer requirements and dedicated hydraulics tuned for any head on the market today.

The soundproof and insulated cab is equipped with a highly adjustable heated seat with pneumatic suspension, and the full-height 32mm (1.25’’) polycarbonate window provides an unparalleled view of the work area. The cab also features a high-capacity, integrated HVAC system with multiple adjustable airflows for superior comfort. An audio system integration is also available, with optional/adjustable control configurations for connected and external devices.

The spacious engine compartment with steel catwalks is designed for easy service and maintenance. The hood is transformed into a platform for component service and maintenance, and the filtration system, batteries, and other critical components are all easily accessible.
