NZ’s first hybrid harvester operating

In HT 034, Video by FIEALeave a Comment

Mike Hurring Logging & Contracting in Balclutha, has begun operating New Zealand’s first diesel-electric harvesting machine. Not only is the machine cheaper to run and better for the environment, it has some great health and safety features.

Mike’s using this hybrid harvester in a production thinning crew, paired up with a forwarder, and is extracting wood that in the past would have been left as waste. Good for the environment, people and business. Thanks to Josh Hurring for telling the company’s story.
