Rise in woodlots boost self-loading loggers

Posted on Thursday 15th November 2018

The increasing number of woodlots being harvested around New Zealand is partly fuelling a boom in the number of self-loading log trucks plying their trade in our forests.


It’s also led to a few innovative rigs being put into service. But because these trucks often work when harvesting crews have long left the skid site, they are rarely seen.


In the December/January issue of NZ Logger we switch the spotlight from our usual Iron Test onto a couple of interesting self-loading examples. It’s on sale at selected service stations from December 3, or click on the photo of the magazine on the opening page of this newsletter to find out how to subscribe for either the printed copy or our online magazine.
