What Forestry Machinery Do I Need?

When it comes to forestry work, it is important to have the right machinery and attachments. At SkidSteer Hire Solutions we are on hand to help you decide what machinery you are in need of and what best suits your job requirements. Bobcats are an ideal piece of plant machinery to use in a woodland area and can be transformed with the use of different attachments.

The Bobcat T770 and T590 high-flow skidsteer tracked loaders are ideally suited to forest environments and both come with certain perks. The T770 compact track loader’s power is unrivalled and has a precision that is hard to match. The sheer force of the Bobcat machine enables for a vertical lift of 11ft and acts as the perfect machine for loading grinders, trucks, and hoppers. It features powerful hydraulics, a durable undercarriage, and has cold weather protection. The cab is larger than normal giving a better visual of the site you are working on, which can often be helpful when in a forestry setting. It also features sound dampening, adjustable seats, and operator friendly controls. The T590 high-flow skidsteer tracked loader has a tipping load of 2,834 kg and with increased hydraulic power it is ideal for vertical lifting. This piece of equipment is ideal for jobs where space is limited and you require maximum lift height.

There are plenty of other machines that you can use when managing or maintaining woodlands. The track loaders mentioned are available with additional attachments, enabling you to customise the hired machine according to your needs. These include FAE forestry mulchers and heavy-duty flail mowers. We have also collected 2 new FAE forestry mulcher heads to use with our loaders after attending the APF Forestry Show. These include the UML/SSL VT 1700 mm head and a lighter duty DML/SSL 1500 mm head. These attachments provide a greater output and are easier to use than earlier models.
