LH822D with 575 bushfire salvage, Australia
This LH822D is equipped with the 575 harvesting head. This machine was destined to showcase at AUSTimber 2020 but unfortunately never made it due to COVID-19.
This unit has the shorter 8.2 m (27 ft) boom option for better stability and lift capacity in larger trees. It is working in the Green Hills region of southern NSW State Forests where approximately 52,000 hectares of plantation Radiata pine was burned by bushfires earlier this year.
A huge thank you to P & T Lonergan, G & J Groves Pty Ltd, and Oldina Logging for running the machine demo for us, and also to FCNSW for allowing the demo during these challenging times.
Onetrak’s Tumut branch has worked hard to get this demo organized. Thank you Onetrak.
