2001 Annual LOG LOADER & FELLER-BUNCHER - Specification Chart

In Today's dynamic forest industry, the challenge is to put the wood on the ground, to the landing, and on the truck bound for the mill as economically, efficiently and safely as possible. Answering that challenge is a pair of rapidly evolving technologies - the modern log loader and the modern feller-buncher. In assembling this annual Log Loader & Feller-Buncher Specification Chart, TIMBER/WEST attempts to share with its readers the range and capacities of the various classes of these impressive forestry machines. 

By first identifying a class of machine, and the types of machines are arranged by weight as a convenient guide, a person may focus on the particular brands and models that appear to meet the requirements of a specific side or a range of operations. Think of the chart as a sketch map which can lead you to the detailed specifications of a range of forestry machines, and certainly not the basis for a direct apples-to-apples comparison of the capabilities and virtues of any particular piece of iron. 

Specifications were provided by the manufacturers or their authorized representatives as of May 2000, and while every effort is made in the assembly and presentation of the information, errors may occur or specifications may change. The inclusion or exclusion of any particular manufacturer or model is not meant in any way as an endorsement or comment on suitability. Interested parties should contact an authorized dealer or distributor, or the manufacturer, for detailed and exact final data. For the most complete and comprehensive list of manufacturers and distributors serving the Western forestry market, look for the annual Buyer's Guide & Directory coming up next month in the June 2001 issue of TIMBER/WEST
