forestry - timber transport

• Timber handling cranes have been historically used by transporters and timber processing companies to transport the timber on site to the processing factories
• Harvested and process timber is used for building materials and wood chips for biomass power generation (renewable energy).
• In the last decade, Japan government have defined targets for domestic timber production and implemented support measures; up to 2/3 of new equipment costs can be subsidized
• On the other hand, the number of forestry workers have declined significantly since the last industry peak in the 1980s
• The next wave will be introducing machines which are even more efficient, and provide more comfort for the user
• Typical length of timber is 3-4m long and suits handling by compact-medium Epsilon cranes.
