Welcome to the latest issues of HarvestTECH.News.
I hope you all enjoyed our first monthly issue of HarvestTECH.News sent out last month. Thanks to all of the positive comments sent back to us. As outlined, the aim is to complement annual technology events being run by FIEA and to more regularly communicate with harvesting contractors, harvest planners, wood transport operators, forestry managers, forest owners and equipment and technology providers across the region.
In this month’s issue, we continue coverage of our two-part series on Kamloops, B.C., log hauler and logging contractor Greg Munden, who shares his company’s experience implementing electronic logging devices (ELDs). Part one was added to this site a month ago. Part 2 covers implementation and driver buy-in, ways to harness the power of an ELD telematics system, as well as telematics features and capabilities.
In this month’s issue, it looks like there is finally a wearable device designed to bring the digital world into the hash real-world conditions of the forestry sector. Company-X is the first Australasian distributor for RealWear’s head-mounted tablets. The ‘tablets’ are small screens that clip onto a hardhat and comes with integrated voice commands for hands-free use.

Company-X is the first Australasian distributor for RealWear’s head-mounted tablets. The ‘tablets’ are small screens that clip onto a hardhat and come with integrated voice commands for hands-free use.
The NZ Herald has produced a fantastic video on NZ’s first all-female forestry crew which we’ve built into this month’s issue and for those that love big machines, we also have articles on the world’s largest electric vehicle, the eDumper, and the bigger T-WINCH traction assist machine.
