With a LOGLIFT forestry crane, you can take your timber moving business to the next level. Each forestry crane can be designed to meet specific working conditions, from weighing systems to grapples, giving the ultimate kit that makes light work of heavy harvesting and delicate energy forestry. Today's global forestry industry demands more, just to remain competitive today’s operators need to produce ten times the volume needed 25 years ago. To achieve this, the equipment must be able to meet increasingly tough business demands.

Hit new heights

For ultimate stretching power, a straight, partially folded S-boom crane is the top choice offering up to 12 metres in full height capacity. If flexibility is more important, Z-boom cranes fold compactly and can be driven away without removing the grapple. Choice of maximum hydraulic reach will create a crane designed for the loads you need to handle.

Safety first

Digital safety features offer peace of mind for the operator and minimise damage or risk to the working environment. A weighing system can ensure the load is the highest possible without overloading while operating features make lifting smoother and more precise limiting risk of damage to equipment or loads.

Push up profitability

Minimised downtime and increased delivery speed contribute to a positive bottom line and continued business growth. Range from six to 26.5 tonne-metres in capacity will cover most business needs from working with cut-to-length timber or full-length stems, or a combination of both. Add a timber grapple that is small and compact, large or industrial sized to always fit the right load.


Make every working day seamless with Hiab forestry cranes that incorporate innovative design and technology with robust build. Precision accuracy and safety systems increase uptime, minimise damages to the equipment, and reduce risk liability - lift after lift.
