Cat for Brolly
Putaruru-based Brolly Logging has added a new Cat 330D2L to its central North Island operation. This adds to two other recent Cat arrivals in the busy crews working around the region, which is something for the Brolly family to be proud of. Pictured is Jude Brolly, who is all smiles in front of the new 330D2L, with their 552 Series 2 felling machine in the background working in the Waitomo forests. The machine was sold by Paul Roche from Gough Cat.
Gerard Harris, of Pure Logging, has taken delivery of a new Tigercat 635G skidder for his ground-base crew working in northern Hokianga. Gerard spec’d the new skidder with the 780/50-28.5 rear bogie to allow him to run band tracks in wetter conditions, reducing environmental impact whilst at the same time maintaining production. Gerard has been blown away at the volume of wood he’s been able to land on the skid in sometimes challenging terrain and his feller/buncher and processor now have to look over their shoulders for the big yellow beast coming out of the cut-over. Pictured next to his new machine is happy operator, Vic Harris.
