SP Maskiner joins the Eco Log Group
A strong overall supplier when SP Maskiner joins the Eco Log Group
In the spring, the merger between Eco Log and Gremo was announced. Now SP Maskiner AB is also joining the joint group and for Eco Log it is an important part of the company's long-term plan. Over the past two years, Eco Log has followed a clear growth strategy and Anders Gustafson, CEO of Eco Log, can state that the work so far is going according to plan.
- A lot has happened with us at Eco Log in a relatively short time, including the acquisition of the sales company Eco Log Försäljning AB and the merger with Gremo, which means that we now have the market's most comprehensive forwarder line-up. The merger with SP widens our range even more, making Eco Log a complete supplier with a comprehensive product that covers the many and varied needs of forestry across the Globe, says Mr Anders Gustafson.
The merger with SP means that a new Eco Log harvester head will be launched, based on SP technology but with Eco Log´s design and unique features.
- It is very exciting to develop and follow up the results on a unit optimized for Eco Log's machines. I am positive that it will be a very competitive combination, says Mr Anders Gustafson.
At the same time, production of SP´s existing range continues as before, and Martin Bredenfeldt, CEO of SP Maskiner AB, sees that the merger provides both stability and the opportunity to invest in the company and the products going forward.
- Today we offer units with high performance and quality, which we will of course continue with. Existing customers can feel completely confident that our current products and the SP brand remain and that we will also have the opportunity to invest in it even more in the future, says Mr Martin Bredenfeldt.

New harvester head
SP Maskiner has developed a completely new harvester head, the SP 661 LF. The head has the optimum characteristics for final felling with the focus on the productivity, utilisation rate and timber values.
The SP 661 LF is a flexible, strong and efficient head with a design based on SP Maskiner's Low Friction principle, for minimal friction and maximum productivity. The unit is an excellent choice for installations on both wheel-based carriers as well as on excavators and caterpillar forestry machines.
All types of final felling
The head has been developed to provide the highest quality and production during all types of final felling. During final felling of thick trunks, the feed rollers and SP Maskiner's patented system, LogHold, give the maximum capacity and production. During final felling of thin trunks, the flexible design comes into its own and, equipped with multi-tree equipment, the 661 also processes thin trunks efficiently. Thanks to an extremely well protected and strong construction, the SP 661 LF also guarantees the shortest possible standstills and the maximum utilisation factor.
