Bell forges ahead with mechanised forestry solutions
26 August, 2013
foresters from afar and Saasveld students braved wet and uncomfortably cold
weather conditions to see a demonstration of John Deere and Waratah mechanised
forestry equipment bears testament to the interest in mechanised harvesting
systems that is growing among members of the South African forestry industry. Bell
Equipment, the official distributor of the John Deere range of forestry
equipment and Waratah processing heads, hosted the forestry field day in Cape
Pine's plantation in the Tsitsikamma area of the Eastern Cape in July.
They were joined by Simon Shackleton of John Deere Forestry and Jules
Larsen of Waratah who provided in-depth information about mechanised
harvesting as well as illustrated the close working relationship and
support that exists between the partners.
