I think forests would benefit a lot from harvester and forwarder rentals.  Would take a lot of pressure off the mechanized crew to cut cut cut no matter what what what.
Problem is out here would be the stuff is mainly used for thinning which honestly isn't something everyone can do or make it profitable. The winch systems is what I was told they were going to rent, could you imagine what a 500k+ machine would look like if you let just any crew rent it?

That would be slick to rent/lease the tether system.  Better than shelling out a couple hundred grand for a setup if you don't use it much

We were looking at some of our personal thinning ground that's due we could use the system there's no way to get to the bottom otherwise, plus it's only one machine for both yarding and cutting which makes more sense to me.

Thank you, if we go Deere it would most likely be a 1270 one reason is the capacity of the head they can handle for the wood we see here in some of the thinning we do. The 1170 far as I know hasn't been sold out here before one reason could be the crane not being strong enough on the slopes we see or for the wood we see out here for weight.

Logset from Finland, heads look fairly robust, power to weight ratio could be better than John Deere. Logset standard with Mesera crane.

Had this H14C show up today it's interesting having leveling after so long of a non tilting machine, I will say I wouldn't do a machine without a turning cab just for backing up as well as having it follow the crane is worth it.
