ROTTNE F13E An all-round forwarder for both thinning and final felling with unique articulated wagon, that gives precise tracking.


19 900 kg (43 870 lbs)


14 000 kg (31000 lbs)


164 kW / 220 hp 


177 kN (39 800 lbf)


+ Forwarder for thinning and final felling

+ Steerable wagon with 54° steering angle & accurate tracking

+ Powerful chassis

+ Large wheels

+ Wide Load

+ Spacious cab with Comfort Line

+ Compatible for bearing or drawing tracks on all wheel pairs


The forwarder is equipped with 8 wheels and a load capacity of a full 14 tonnes. Hydraulically operated headboard and front bunk makes Rottne F13very versatile when handling different timber lengths. The forwarder can alternatively be equipped with width adjustable load bunks (Wide Load) and hydraulic stakes, which increases its flexibility and load capacity from 4,7 m2 to 5,5 m2.

Powerful chassis and steering wagon give a flexible machine

Rottne F13E has a powerful chassis that can manage final felling, at the same time as the steering wagon with an extremely large steering angle of 54°, extremely small turning circle and accurate tracking makes it ideal for dense thinning.

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.


Rottne F13D Super Steer has an articulated wagon giving unique capabilities when driving off-road. The forwarder’s powerful chassis can cope with final felling perfectly well, but the machine is also ideal for light and dense thinning thanks to its unique wagon steering.


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.
