Ponsse S 20
A new robust forwarder, the S 20, is introduced; approximately 50 machines are manufactured in 1980 – 1983.
Manufacturing of the S 20 forwarder ends as a new, lighter model S 15 is introduced to the market. As mechanised harvesting increases in the early 1980s, the treadmarks left in the woods by the heavy machinery become a talking point. The public starts to demand lighter and more eco-friendly machines.
