A completely new compact forwarder in the inter-mediate class with 12 tonne load capacity.

+ Small & versatile with large wheels

+ 12 tonne load capacity

+ 45° steering angle

+ Powerful transmission in its class

+ Spacious cab with Comfort Line

+ Compatible for bearing tracks on all wheel pairs


Rottne F11E is our new 8-wheel forwarder with a 12-tonne load capacity – a strong workhorse which with its high tractive force provides a soft and flexible operation in tough terrain. The low centre of gravity provides the forwarder with great stability.

The frame has the same design as the larger Rottne forwarders and the central joint, which has a 45° steering angle, is
located only 40 cm in front of the machine’s centre point. This means that the wagon has very good tracking. As Rottne F11E is a small forwarder with large wheels it has low ground pressure and good bearing capacity.

Crane with different reach options

The crane is a Rottne RK85 with several extension options and a reach of 7.5 to 9.3 metres.

We have equipped our forwarders with a powerful bogie lift for more than 30 years. The bogie lift is individual, which means that the right and left-hand can be controlled separately. The bogie lift makes the forwarder more flexible – for example in narrow stands, wet or steep terrain and for moving between work sites when chains are used.


The spacious and comfortable cabin has a modern design where the operator sits in the centre. The large windows and low-set instrument panel provide an uninterrupted view of the immediate and overhead surroundings. The cabin is equipped with a number of storage compartments as well as a food warmer. Noise levels in our cabins are quieter than in cars. Our cabins are leaders in ergonomics among the forestry machines.


The unique cabin suspension system Comfort Line reduces shock, as well as makes crane work and driving in terrain significantly smoother. Since the launch in 2007, Comfort Line has been improved with updated software, more
robust structure and more precise positioning.


Our forwarder computer has the new Forester F30- and GeoInfo software with GPS-equipment as an option. These simplify planning, reporting and provide accurate follow-up. The forwarder computer consists of a powerful
computer and a large touchscreen. A printer can also be added. Production files from the harvester are received in the forwarder computer. With the help of this, forwarder reporting then shows how much timber has
been driven out to the road – and where it is located – for further transportation by truck. The forwarder computer also generates a follow-up of operations, which shows the operator’s efficiency and machine’s performance to
the machine owner. 

Geoinfo is an option that allows to plan and increase the efficiency of forwarding.
It enables information such as production files and maps with working routes to be automatically transferred from the harvester to the forwarder to facilitate transport planning and ensure that all felled timber is collected.


Tilt base for the crane tower is extra equipment and is available for Rottne F10D, F11D, F13D and F15D. The crane tilt provides significant advantages for log-hauling on steep terrain. The hydraulic tilt function, 5 ° forward/28° backwards, means that the crane's net swing force can be maintained when the forwarder works on inclines up to 30°. Keeping the crane tower vertical will not reduce the swing force of the crane's self-weight. In addition, it means the timber can be accessed easier while thinning on steep terrain.
