Falcon Tandem Carriage

The Falcon Tandem Carriage enables contractors to extract wood from gullies, valleys and environmentally sensitive areas without raising and lowering the skyline.

Access the Inaccessible.

Not one logging setting is the same, but many steep-slope operations have similar challenges of accessing gullies, valleys and sensitive areas without negatively impacting productivity, safety or the environment.
The Falcon Tandem Carriage helps logging contractors achieve this – with excellence. The Falcon Tandem Carriage gives contractors the key to keep their operation 100% mechanised without putting crew at risk.
Combined with cost-savings on rope wear, no additional fuel costs and an intuitive operator interface, your crew can start logging safer, faster and more efficient from day one.

Never worry about raising and lowering your tower’s skyline during cycles again.

Operator Ease: "It's an awesome set-up"
