Move more timber to maximize productivity

Grabbing and collecting large tree trunks places huge demands on forestry cranes and log loaders. Whether handling tree-length or cut-to-length timber, the crane needs to be reliable, strong and able to maximize payload to make every work cycle as productive as possible. These days, operators are expected to produce many times the volume needed just a few decades ago – prompting the need for more efficient equipment to meet the demands of a modern operator.

Strenx® high-strength steel in booms help you maintain a low dead weight while giving the boom true lifting power to operate with precision, speed and high maneuverability. Every pound of deadweight removed can translate into greater capacity and productivity, less fuel consumption and a reduced carbon footprint.
