About Forestry Equipment and Supplies
The work of forestry requires many different kinds of equipment. There are chainsaws, of course, for removing tree limbs or bringing down whole trees, as well as cutting them into logs of a certain size and shape either for building or for firewood. TuffWerx features top names like Husqvarna, Poulan, Solo, John Deere and Stihl. Foresters also require different kinds of saws: bow saws, two-man saws, crosscut saws, and portable sawmills.
Commercial, professional wood chippers transform branches into mulch for trails or planting. TuffWerx offers the best chippers, Brush Bandit, Vermeer and Morbark. Other heavy equipment is versatile and can be used for multiple jobs, depending on which attachments you buy. Skid Steer loaders can tackle a variety of forestry jobs with attachments such as tree shears that can cut down trees, mulchers and wood chippers, stump grinders and fork grapple attachments for carrying logs, just for starters.
Other types of forestry equipment include debarkers and peelers for stripping logs for lumber and building uses. Flatbed trucks and dump trucks are used to carry logs, mulch and other forestry products that have been harvested to lumber yards.
Mowers and small tractors are often used, along with attachments such as brush hogs, in forestry and landscaping projects on public or commercial lands. TuffWerx carries top brands like Exmark, Toro, Case IH and more.
And forestry work couldn’t be done without the use of bucket trucks, also known as Cherry Pickers, which allow tree trimmers and orchard workers to travel quickly from one area to another. The arm of the bucket or basket truck, as it is sometimes called, can be raised and often pivoted, to reach the branches of trees that are otherwise inaccessible. Altec, Terex and Versalift are some of the top manufacturers TuffWerx features.
Tips for Buying Forestry Equipment and Supplies
- Forestry can require a lot of tools. Identify the equipment that can do several jobs—like a skid steer loader with the right attachments. Make a list of the key tasks you’ll need equipment to do and decide what equipment will get the job done most efficiently.
- A lot of forestry tools can be dangerous if not properly cared for. Consider using TuffWerx premium inspection services before buying one of these pieces of equipment to make sure it’s in top shape to use.
- Consider the fuel used by the equipment. Do you want equipment that all runs on diesel? Or all on gasoline? Figure fuel costs into your purchase.
