Forestry

We all have an image how trees are cut down by a flannel-clad lumberjack yelling “TIMBER,” but that’s far from the truth.

Foresters use massive equipment to fell trees and manage the lumber — massive machines that have low energy efficiency and high transportation costs due to their weight.

If only those machines could be lighter and more cost effective without losing the strength and durability needed for these rugged job sites. Now they can.

At CIP, we fabricate high-strength low-alloy steel (HSLA) multi-bend parts for forestry equipment including:

  • Log Cutters
  • Feller Bunchers

These parts are stronger than the industry standard, but are up to 25% lighter.

That means these machines weigh less with no loss of strength, which leads to improved energy efficiency and and lower transportation costs.
