Logging-on’s second issue of June brings a taste of things to come in 2020! Komatsu Forest have already let us know what is new in their logging equipment line next year. They are poised to update and release a substantial number of machines and attachments. Kesla have made changes to their popular 18RH-II thinning head, resulting in them being more robust than the previous model. The number of chipping and grinding options can be quite confusing to the practitioner. Rotochopper guides us through tub and horizontal grinders to assist with decision making. Cummins has started using an interesting new 3-D metal printing technology which will reduce component manufacture costs. Finally, we look at a new product offering from Trimble which combines a smartphone with a high-end GPS, and integrates with other Trimble products and services.
