The iron horse
in forestry

The concept of transport in the forest was already developed in the 1980s for and by forest owners.
Now with the option of modern hydraulics, winch and a range of accessories to make forest work easier.

The iron horse - the forest owner's best friend

As a self-employed forest owner, there is always something to work on!. Some tasks most people choose to leave to larger machines, but in addition to this there is thinning, bark beetle control, planting and not least storm-felled forest.

If you are thinking of getting an off-road machine for forest work, you might be tempted by the idea that a tractor or ATV would be an option. This works, of course, also in most cases but if you want a machine that really makes its way into the forest and with a hefty load, then you have to look at more specially adapted products such as Järnhästen

Quickly in place

The compact dimensions of the iron horse make it easy to transport to the forest. There it can be easily driven off and configured as needed with the many accessories.

Protect your forest

The low pressure on the rubber belts does not damage roots and plants like a larger machine. You can manoeuvre the machine in very narrow passages minimising the need for cutting paths.

Getting you everywhere

The unique terrain characteristics allow you to access more difficult areas. The integrated winch further increases the reach.


There is great value to be gained from the timely management of storm-felled or insect-damaged forests. Don't wait for the tractor to drive, use the Iron Horse.


An Iron Horse is a distinctive tool and transport carrier, allowing you to use it as a skinner, loader and pulling machine through its various attachments.

Do something of your own

With the Iron Horse as a platform, you can create your own solution. We often help our customers to create their own accessory solutions.
