NZ Logger - Son of Thor

Wednesday 1 Nov 2017

Northland used to be known for its really big wood, but not anymore. As piece sizes have shrunk in recent years, so has the need for equally large machinery to harvest it, as demonstrated when Rosewarne Cable Loggers downsized to a pair of new generation John Deere 3156G tracked swing machines, fitted with upgraded SouthStar QS630 heads for processing, a combination that is Iron Tested in the November issue of NZ Logger magazine.

Other features include Brian Reader's celebration of 50 years in forestry and how he got started in native logging.

The magazine also reports on the WoodTECH conference in Rototura, where new ideas to boost sawmilling and wood processing were discussed, as well as how technology is shaping the industry from the Forest Growers Research conference in Christchurch.

Plus much more, in the November 2017 issue of NZ Logger, now on sale at selected service stations, or to subscribe for either the printed version and/or the digital version, visit
