Until recently, fully mechanised short timber technology was not available for steep slopes. As a result, there is now a strong demand for suitable, high performance machinery that operates with as little ground damage as possible on sharp gradients at risk of erosion.
Thanks to remarkable innovative solutions, the ideal choice here is the HSM 208F forwarder for steep slopes.
HSM has spurred on technology for forwarding from slopes and is investing further in this technology to satisfy the growing demands of its customers and to contribute towards their success.
The "HSM Force Synchro Drive" employed for the steep gradient concept distributes forces to the cable and the wheel drive in accordance with user specifications.
