Processing / Loading
Cat® forest machines, shovel loggers and knuckleboom loaders can meet your processing and loading needs. Delimbing and processing (cutting the tree to required lengths) can occur at the landing or the stump. Loading consists of transferring the logs from a landing area to a truck.
Shovel logging ("hoe-chucking") is desirable on flat to moderately sloping ground (up to 35%). The shovel traverses the area, systematically swinging logs closer to the road.
