Regional Markets for Skidders Industry Research Report: Radiant Insights

Radiant Insights has published a new report titled “Global Skidders Industry 2016 Market Research Report”

Skidders are heavy vehicles of use in logging operation. Pulling of cut trees from a forest is referred to as ‘skidding’. The logs, after cutting, are moved from the site at which they are cut to a ‘landing’. They are then loaded onto trucks and taken to the mill. Modern skidders use cables to pull trees. They are generally four wheel drive or tracked tractors. They are equipped with a turbocharged diesel engine, funnel-shaped guards on the rear, and winch & steel. These logging machines are capable of selective logging in or thinning large timber.

While forwarders are capable of hauling short and small pieces, skidders are the preferred choice for thinning mature timber. This owes to their expertise in removing some trees while leaving others behind. Skidders are also used to pull tree stumps, and push over small trees. Additionally, they play a role in the preliminary grading of the skid road (logging path). A major advantage of using a skidder is that as the wood is pulled, the tree particles and seeds are cultivated back into the soil. Moreover, this equipment promotes efficiency and ensures worker safety. This results in higher productivity and profitability.
