New Madill goes to workAs covered in a recent issue of WoodWeek, in what's seen as a real boost to the New Zealand Forest industry, Brightwater has just completed construction of the first New Zealand built Madill 124 Swing Yarder, manufactured at the company's Christchurch facility. The massive 60 tonne, 21 metre high, track mounted Swing Yarder is used by forest logging crews on steep slopes to haul logs from the tree stump to an extraction site.
The machine was purchased by Alister Peacocke of Peacocke Logging and is currently operating in the Kaingaroa Forest in the central North Island. Commissioning took place two weeks ago and a camera crew was there to film the Madill 124 in action for the first time.
