Forestry Swing Machines

Rugged, Reliable, and Ready to Rumble.

Rugged, Reliable, and Ready to Rumble.

Five years in the making. Backed by more than a half-century of experience in the woods. To build a better swing machine, we went to you, our customer. Through our Customer Advocate Group (CAG), we collected invaluable input from loggers just like you – the ones who live it every day. Then we spent thousands of hours testing the machines until we got them exactly right.

You spoke. We listened. We responded with a major cab update that sets a new standard for comfort and safety – improvements that you won’t be able to imagine living without. And as always, there are a host of other new features that help boost productivity and maximize uptime, while lowering daily operating costs. Our Swing Machines will change your expectations about what a swing machine can accomplish.

Key features include:

  • Simplified electrical system
  • Beefier structures
  • More robust cooling system
  • Hydraulic reversing fan
