Timber industry

The wood all-rounder.

Weidemann machines have been widely distributed for decades within agriculture - what is more apparent is that their use in the timber industry has arisen from this almost self-evidently. If a machine is already in the yard, you naturally like to utilize its full potential. With the right attachments, “making wood” is not a problem.

The processing of firewood is once again in demand thanks to the again increasing and strong spread of wood burners and stoves, and for many farmers this is an additional source of income alongside their own sourcing of firewood.

Even at home in the sawmill.

With their maneuverability, compact design, and low consumption, the Weidemann machines complement the large machines performing the heavy work in the sawmills. Loading works, stacking and removing trunks, and filling the energy recuperation systems are their specialism here.

Tasks and applications in the timber industry

Discover the options from some examples.

    Transport works

    With a logging fork, the Weidemann machine is well-suited to holding, stacking and transporting timber logs and weak wood equally. The grip function of the fork provides a secure hold on the timber with the driving and lifting movements.

    Splitting wood

    Powerful Weidemann machines, with their high tipping and/or payload, perfectly and efficiently fulfill the roles of supplier and customer in the professional splitting of wood - naturally the subsequent loading of firewood boxes in the hanger is included within this.

    Building piles

    At a sawmill, the handling of delivered tree trunks in length-organized piles within the storage facility is a daily recurring task. Complete stability and a high payload, as well as a good reach of the telescopic arm are demanded of a work machine for this.

    Filling systems

    Personal use of the sawdust from the enclosure is customary practice at sawmills. Therefore, the bucket volume, stability of the machine and upwards visibility are of equal relevance for filling systems.

    Loading work

    The storage space for finished goods is restricted in such a ways at a sawmill that trucks must frequently be loaded from one side. This is not a problem with a Weidemann telehandler, because the arm of the machine can reach to the furthest row of loading area.

    Stacking work

    In a sawmill, a Weidemann machine can support the secure stacking of finished products. Here, the Weidemann fits the interaction between lifting height, stability, and maneuverability, making it the ideal machine type.

    Grounds maintenance

    To mow green spaces it is recommended that the Weidemann machine is equipped with a rotary mower, mulcher, or a flail mower. Likewise available for pruning hedges, shrubs, and trees are pruning saws, hedge cutters and double-knife mowers.
