New range of timber trailers designed and manufactured in house. The trailer shown has a 3t capacity and is designed for towing behind small tractors. The design came about from a customer who wanted to carry his tractor and trailer from site to site in one go and without hassle, so we designed a trailer that can telescope from 4m open to just 2.5m closed so now the tractor and trailer can be kept joined tgether and driven straight onto the transporting trailer (see pics below.) Available with or without a timber crane and braked or unbraked and stood on flotation tyres makes these trailers easy to use and easy to move.
Our skidder is perfect for making the most from your compact tractors, The skidder features hydraulic rotation and can also be specified with a hydraulic top link for loading trailers or stacking timber. The skidder is available in two sizes, 15hp - 25hp and 25hp - 50hp. Cat 1 or Cat 2 linkage (cat 1 on smaller model)
The larger grapple can open upto 1260mm and the skidder weighs 200kg (with hydraulic toplink)
The smaller grapple opens upto 1000mm and weighs 140kg
The skidder features a protective plate to stop smaller logs/branches being forced into the back of the tractor when reversing and the sharp teeth on the lower plate are designed for going over a log. The grapple can then be raised either on the 3 point linkage or the hydraulic toplink to carry the timber

Custom build projects a speciality
At RSL we have a wide ranging knowledge which enables us to carry out a variety of custom builds. One particular customer came to us with a problem of cleaning out a very deep and narrow well (80cm). After discussing ideas we were happy to be able to provide our customer with a special grapple. The grapple is made far stronger than it will ever need to be so as to provide weight to enable it work effectively as it is hung from a crane.
If you have a job that needs doing and you cannot find the item to do it please call and see if we can help.
