Timberjack 380C

Our primary log recovery machine is a Timberjack 380C grapple skidder(120hp 6 cylinder cummins, 12 tonnes), this particular machine is nicely balanced for the terain we encounter day to day. A wide low stance for stability on the side of a mountain with enough clearance for travel over obsticals, the 380 is comfortable for the operator with a angled seat and steering wheel control, the single arch esco graple is somewhat small for the hardwood operations but if u dont mind going down the mountain with 1 larger log then it does the job effictively and lifting with the single arch is no worries...i can pick up a 5m3 log at the but end and walk away with it no sweat.
