Felling trees in difficult situations demand the best safety arrangements and powerful machines to rely on. The forestry equipment producer Westtech from Upper Austria developed a versatile grip saw for the intelligent attachment to an excavator with very low net weight, to remove trees fast and unscathed: the Woodcracker® CS610 compact.
the stump removal shear Woodcracker® R and the clearing rake Woodcracker® G work efficiently – solely or in combination
The stump removal shear Woodcracker® R was designed to harvest and generate biomass from big root stocks. The clearing rake Woodcracker® G extracts smaller rootstocks and root material.
Both Woodcracker® are available in various sizes and easily mounted to common carrier vehicles due to the standardized quick-change system.
In autumn of 2019, the German company Bayernlift decided to get a WOODCRACKER ® CS580 smart to attach it to one of their telescopic handlers. The company owns a Merlo telescopic handler, which they want to use for forestry services as well. Bayernlift primarily has its focus on lift trucks and lifting ramps for hire.
The company HSM welcomed their eagerly anticipated grapple saw CS580 smart in the middle of October.
In the UK, the fungus responsible for ash dieback is spreading more quickly than expected according to experts, reports BBC. Millions of deseased trees near buildings, roads and railways will have to be cut down. A recent survey found infections had been confirmed across 80% of WAles, 68% of England, 32% of Northern Ireland and 20% of Scotland. (Source: BBC). The fungus infects the trunk and branches which die off as a consequence. The trees become fragile which makes a felling with a chainsaw very difficult.
Woodcracker returns to the 2019 TCIA Expo in Pittsburgh, reaffirms its commitment to the tree care industry.
Together with the Bremer Baumdienst in Germany Westtech produced this amazing video.
