Hit­tner – Eco­trac 60 V out­stand­ing rugged partner

By 26. March 2024 No Comments

Found­ed in 1987 the Croa­t­ian com­pa­ny Hit­tner d.o.o. is spe­cial­ized in the pro­duc­tion of for­est trac­tors-skid­ders, small agri­cul­tur­al-munic­i­pal trac­tors and attach­ments, and all sorts of spare parts. For many years, Hit­tner has been on the list of the best pri­vate com­pa­nies in the Repub­lic of Croa­t­ia, and as spe­cial bonus to achiev­ing the posi­tion of mar­ket leader and prod­uct qual­i­ty, Hit­tner com­pa­ny has been award­ed three “Gold­en kunas” for out­stand­ing qual­i­ty of busi­ness man­age­ment and the award “Croa­t­ian gazelle” for quick respons­es and adap­ta­tion to mar­ket con­di­tions, advanced busi­ness phi­los­o­phy, use and appli­ca­tion of new knowl­edge, tech­nol­o­gy and inno­va­tion-based growth.

The forestry machin­ery spe­cial­ist has decid­ed to equip their lat­est appli­ca­tion with a Perkins engine. The recent­ly launched Skid­der Eco­trac 60 works with a Perkins 404J-E22T with 45 kW. The 4‑cylinder, 2.2 litre engine achieves exhaust emis­sion stage V and thus ful­fills the strict exhaust emis­sion reg­u­la­tions of the Euro­pean Union. The com­pact “small one” from Perkins deliv­ers excel­lent torque at low speeds, reduced own­er and oper­at­ing costs and extreme­ly low noise and harshness.

The pre­vi­ous Eco­trac mod­el has been car­ry­ing out thin­ning work for the Croa­t­ian forests with great suc­cess over the last twen­ty years, thanks to its endurance, effi­cien­cy and econ­o­my. “We have great expec­ta­tions of the new Eco­trac 60, as the new mod­el with opti­mised dri­ve tech­nol­o­gy promis­es even more pow­er and effi­cien­cy. We are cur­rent­ly look­ing for­ward to the deliv­ery of the first 15 machines for the Croa­t­ian state for­est,” says Josip Šimunek, Head of Devel­op­ment at Hit­tner. “The col­lab­o­ra­tion with BU Pow­er Sys­tems went flaw­less­ly. We are delight­ed with the suc­cess­ful project.”
