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.

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.
