Universality even in forestry
|The first Menzi Muck woodland harvester made its debut in 1997. Since then, it has developed into a sophisticated professional forestry machine. By pursuing a policy of continuous development, Menzi Muck has established itself as a major player in today's forestry sector. We have gained a reputation for high quality and the forestry sector has become one of our main areas of activity.
Known to many as a "precipice harvester" or "walking harvester", the Menzi Muck has made the profitable mechanisation of thinning operations on difficult terrain a reality. Thanks to the harvester's chassis, which can be adjusted to suit the ground on which it is to work, the powerful all-wheel drive and the walking function, absolutely nothing can stand in its way. Gradients in excess of 100% pose no problems.
As well as being the most rational alternative for assortment on uphill and downhill gradients in excess of 40%, it is also suitable for full-tree uprooting. Whether the task at hand involves forest work following a storm, thinning work or clear cutting, the possible applications are many and varied. The option to retrofit the machine with excavator accessories for infrastructure operations also extends the range of possible applications and ensures high utilisation rates.
In respect of mechanical thinning, ecological aspects are being considered with increasing importance. When compared with other forestry machines, the Menzi Muck harvester combines reduced weight with increased performance. The fact that the chassis can be adjusted to suit the ground on which work is being carried out and the low pressure on the ground provide extensive protection for the woodland floor. Furthermore, the manoeuvrability of the Menzi Muck prevents damage to surrounding greenery.
The relatively low purchase cost, high performance and universal applicability of the Menzi Muck open up interesting possibilities for forestry managers.
