Hunting with the
iron horse

Hunting is a very common use for the Iron Horse. Getting to and from hard-to-reach places with Järnhästen as a moose hauler makes it enormously easier for the hunting team.

The iron horse - the hunter's best friend

The concept was already developed in the 80's for and by hunters. For transporting elk in the forest or why not both wild boar and deer? Now with the option of modern hydraulics, winch and a range of specially developed accessories to make hunting easier.
Over 12'000 machines produced and delivered to all continents, guaranteeing a quality product with superior off-road performance, especially in difficult or wet terrain.

If you're thinking of getting an off-road machine for hunting, you might be tempted to consider a tractor or ATV as an option. Of course, this will work in most cases, but if you want a machine that will really get around in the woods and with a hefty load, then you need to look at more customised products such as the Iron Horse.

Dragging the elk out with part of the hunting team is very stressful. With the Iron Horse, you can quickly load the elk with the winch and start the transport immediately.


The Iron Horse reduces the risk of getting stuck in the terrain. This is a concept really developed for use in our forests.


No machine is the best at everything. However, the tractor with trailer and Iron Horse is an unbeatable combination when you want both range and speed in transport.


An ordinary ATV, sometimes used as an elk tractor, is not really designed for heavy loads in roadless terrain, which makes it prone to breakdowns.


Järnhästen is basically a tool- and transport carrier which allows you to use it as a mini skid steer, loader and working machine through its various accessories.


Maintaining an Iron Horse usually does not require a service workshop and can be easily done by the owner.
(It is also possible to have this arranged through our service network)

developed for- and by hunters

Many hunters over the years have also developed their own clever solutions for using the Iron Horse during hunting, and many of our accessories once started out as self-built prototypes. We encourage all our customers to discuss ideas and thoughts with us about both machine, method and accessories.
