Material handling in timber yards or sawmills places specific demands on technology: logs of different lengths, diameters and weights often need to be transported over long distances. The corresponding loading machines therefore need to be swift and maneuverable in order to ensure mobility and flexibility, even in limited space conditions. Our timber handlers fulfill all the preconditions for this demanding area of operation. The undercarriages are specially constructed for timber handling and offer a particularly powerful drive, together with all-wheel steering (except for the MHL350 HD), for high cornering and driving stability. Optional timber blades support swift lane clearance and simple log alignment. The “Pick & Cary machines” are the first choice for loading and unloading trucks and picking up logs of different lengths.
Machines on LIGNA 2017:
Compact and maneuverable for Pick & Carry use. The machine picks up the load and drives it to the destination. It works in a powerful, precise, swift and flexible manner. This machine fulfill all the preconditions for high efficiency when handling timber.
- MHL350 HD
While a standard machine can only work when supported, the MHL350 HD is designed for the swift and comfortable transportation of heavy loads thanks to its enlarged undercarriage.
This is possible thanks to axles with a differential lock, specially adapted single pneumatics tires and a drive with reversing lock. The MHL350 HD carries the loads it has picked up at a speed of up to 20 km/h on the hitched trailer.
