Markus Krenn from the Austrian company Ecoforst shows us the key features of the T-Winch mobile winch assist machine they have developed to assist in steep slope logging. Now available in North America through Woodland Equipment in Kamloops BC, Canada.
In all places where unsecured driving leads to too increased risk for human and machine, the solid T-WINCH traction winch assistant can be used.
Not only is the application of the traction winch a considerable cost saving for the operator because of the verifiable reduction of fuel consumption, but the use of T-WINCH also represents an environmentally conscious approach in the field of timber harvesting.
The remarkable construction together with the functional design, ensures an approved and reliable operation. An easy reach of the operation field is provided by the help of the crawler movement and the radio control. The plate in the front part of the machine provides even more stability in rough terrain.
