Which forestry crane?

Recommended Posts

It all depends on what your after... for example speed or a high lift capacity?

 

Oniar offer the 52 & 67s which are 5.2m & 6.7m reach cranes, approx. 1 ton close in and 400-500kg at full reach. These models would be ideal for a chipper, biomass and first thinning use. Having smaller lift rams the cranes should be quicker to operate.

 

Or, if you require the lift, a 72 crane which has a 7.2m reach, approx 2 ton close in and 700kg at 7.2m.

I now also have prices on there new cranes, the 7400 and 8600, which we are quite excited about and will be getting into stock soon.

 

Drop me a pm with some more information on what you're looking do, your email address and contact number if you're interested. I'd be happy to price and suggest a suitable machine from there

 

Cheers,

Calum @ Riko

All come down to how much money you want to spend. You say you want 3pl version have you considered putting the crane on a Jake plate and keeping it on the tractor?

 

As for brands i've never used the 3 series Botex just the bigger 5 ones. They're great value for money and make good arb cranes. I'm currently rather taken by the Farmi G2 trailers and cranes.

 

Kesla make some very good cranes i think the 200s come on a 3pl.

:thumbup1: ditto the Farma.

 

Botex lift sure but wear out doing it rather quickly. Pure arb / hardwood crane; too sluggish, sloppy, imprecise and unrefined for forestry.

Anyone tried the kelfry range, certainly not kesla built quality but looked ok for estate work or thinnings.

Just had a look at 1 of the front loader grabs for shifting timber in the yard today, cheep and should do job fine.
