How to Use an Iron Horse ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Here we see Iain setting up and using an Iron Horse to extract timber from the woodland. This system is ideally suited to a small-scale woodland - the Iron Horse has agility and strength but low ground pressure so does less damage to the woodland floor; it also enables manoeuvrability within a dense woodland and helps both with loading and unloading the timber stack - especially if you are working alone to clear timber.

It might be low impact. But it would be low production also

Not enough grunt for decent size timber or difficult country. Ok for hobbyist or small time farmer

Real loggers would just unload a D9 and clear the lot in a day, then move on
