Pro forwarding trailers

Requirements to modern forwarding trailers vary greatly depending on the respective area of application. Pfanzelt offers the most extensive range of forwarding trailers on the market. As a result, users can configure their Pfanzelt Pro forwarding trailer to suit their individual needs.

The new Profi series introductory model

The P11+ sparks a passion by powerful performance with compact dimensions. It has been equipped with a powerful forestry crane in load class B4.
For duty in demanding terrain, the P11+ can also be equipped with uniDRIVE wheel drive.

The powerful mid-range.

The trailer P15 has an operating load capacity of 13 t and is convincing with its great performance and a professional double telescope forestry crane of the 5 mt-range.

More details on Pro forwarding trailers


The strong frame structure which is based on a torsion-resistant central spar is the basis for the excellent off-road<br/> handling properties of the Pfanzelt forwarding trailer, even when loaded. The central spar is made of fine grain steels to cope with the highest loads. Besides maximum stability, this design offers maximum ground clearance. The central spar has a double wall in the crane mounting plate area to provide the forwarding trailer with additional strength for heavy crane attachments. A second spar is has been welded to the central spar to exacting technical standards.

Frame extension and sliding axle

The flat bed can be extended by up to 2,000 mm for the transport of various timber lengths by means of an integrated, extensible frame. The greatest possible flexibility for loading of the forwarding trailer is also assured by the stanchions whose position can be changed by sliding them along the central spar and the axle bogie. By sliding the axle bogie, heavy loads can be precisely adjusted to the tractor type, thus avoiding the drawbar load being exceeded and also preventing a negative drawbar load.

Bogie axle

The bogie axle of Pfanzelt forwarding trailers offers stability during crane operation and the best possible drive characteristics. The large pendulum travel of the bogie axle has a range of up to 394 mm. This enables that the trailer can safely drive over branches and other obstacles. The even distribution of the ground pressure is another big advantage.


The bogie axle is mounted on lubricatable and adjustable spherical articulated bearings. This guarantees true running for many years.

Steerable draw bar

Pfanzelt forwarding trailers are equipped as standard with a pivoting draw bar with a large steering angle. The maximum excursion from the centre is +/- 750 mm. Reliable operation even when the loaded rear trailer is turned uphill is assured by two powerful hydraulic cylinders. The pivoting moment is thus 23.6 kNm (at an oil pressure of 200 bar). The steerable draw bar is mechanically locked for on-road driving in the one-man system.


The draw bar of the Pro forwarding trailer is available in both top- and bottom-hitched versions. The bearings of the pivoting draw bar in the form of lubricatable and adjustable spherical articulated bearings ensure long-term operating safety of this component that is subject to heavy loading.

When fitted with an independent hydraulic oil supply, the powerful piston pump is protected from damage by encapsulated mounting either above or below the draw bar.

Brake system

Pfanzelt Pro forwarding trailers are equipped as standard with a braking system that acts on four wheels. Depending on the trailer size, the braking system is available as a hydraulic or pneumatic system. The compact diaphragm brake cylinders are completely encapsulated with a protective hood. This means that the brake system is protected from damage by branches or the gripper.

Permit for public roads

Travel on public roads is no problem for Pfanzelt machines, even when loaded. With the TÜV certificate, the forwarding trailer can be licensed for top speeds of 25 or 40 km/h on public roads. Some types can also be equipped for licensing for speeds up to 80 km/h.

LED lighting with turn signal monitoring

The lighting system using LED lights is integrated in the frame. To protect the lights when working in the forest, these can be folded in.

Transport boxes

The high cut material box is suitable for the transport of light brush and treetop material, while the floor pan is ideal for the combined
transport of branches and trunks. If this is permanently mounted on the vehicle, this protects the tyres from damage by the gripper.


Tool box and holder

Chain saws and fuel canisters can be practically and neatly stowed on the forwarding trailer. An additional storage bin is ideally suited for lashing belts, tools and other small items.

Drive systems

uniDRIVE (only P11 and P13)

The new uniDRIVE hydraulic wheel drive sets new standards in terms of price/performance ratio and is available for Pfanzelt S-line (except for S6 model) and Pro forwarding trailers (P11 and P13).

  • Maximum thrust per wheel up to 2 t
  • Maximum speed up to 8 km / h
  • Hydraulic supply via oil supply or hydraulic system of the tractor
  • Extending the drive prevents wear during road trips



The new, hydraulic powerDRIVE wheel drive made by Pfanzelt opens up a new wheel hub drive dimension.

  • 6.1 metric tons of maximum thrust
  • Proportional drive to move forwards and backwards
  • All brake systems possible in combination with wheel hub drive
  • Automatic drive deactivation upon braking
  • Freewheeling for non-wearing on-road driving

2WD-II3,1 t

4WD-I4,8 t4,4 km/h
4WD-II6,1 t4,1 km/h

Data depends on hydraulic oil quantity and pressure.


Friction drive

The drive system with friction drive consists from a special axle system with mounting cradle that is fitted with two hydraulic motors. The hydraulic motors drive two star-form friction rollers that if necessary are hydraulically pressed into the tyre treads. This system can transmit a thrust of 3 tonnes. 


Pfanzelt forestry cranes are designed for professional duty. The Pfanzelt crane range includes loading cranes in various lift classes.<br/> All Pfanzelt cranes have a larger lifting force and a higher pivoting moment to enable<br/> powerful pivoting of the crane – even uphill.
