Does anyone have any experience or information on management company or landowner sponsored programs that provide incentives to loggers to invest in CTL equipment?? I have a lot of respect for my contractor and the work they do with the equipment they have (Grapple/Buncher combination), but the properties I manage (55K acres) are just screaming for CTL equipment. I'd hate to just kick them off the job because they don't have CTL. In this region, a quality company is hard to come by. And by in large, CTL equipment hasn't really caught on. My loggers are resistant to the idea. I've heard of companies/large landowners providing incentives to loggers to invest in CTL, but I'm coming up short with real life examples or studies. Any thoughts or experiences? If not, what would it take to make it worth your while to invest in CTL?
what do you call a small tracked machine? the boom might work for a fixed mount head. with a dangle it wouldnt have much reach. a new head would most likely be over a 100k. i asked what a new keto cost like the one i have and was told 125k
I'm curious what are the things you like about CTL vs tree length operations. We run both types (I'm on the CTL side). It seems that skilled and conscientious operators are what makes a nice job.
