Issue 26 – Forest Machine Magazine
Issue 26 features the first UK trials of the Logset 12H GTE Hybrid Harvester, Fuelwood open days North and South, BaSt-Ing’s great range of forestry accessories and how to protect equipment against damage from fluids during heat transfer. Our comprehensive skills shortage and training feature got incredible feedback from a diverse spectrum of people from throughout the industry. Find out their thoughts and ideas on how we as an industry should move forward to make forestry a more attractive career choice and the current training facilities on offer. We follow the very last Gremo 1058 H5 Harvester off the production line at Atran in Sweden to its new home in Scotland and we spend a wonderful day with Bolero and Simon Lenihan, one of the very few professional horse loggers left in the UK. This is a carbon neutral, sustainable and powered by nature method of timber extraction working in difficult and inaccessible areas. Stewart Kelly also gave us an in depth look at Clark Tracks new automated production facility and of course all the latest news and equipment, “Logging all over the world” T Shirts and Hoodies and fun pages for our younger loggers.
