Looking at Logging Part 1 is the first of a two-part programme in which Pete Connock and Martin Phippard offer a unique insight into logging operations around the world.
Viewers are first introduced to the history of timber extraction around the globe. This is followed by a trip to Finland where a 60-tonne Sisu demonstrator powered by a CAT diesel hauls timber along snow-covered forest tracks.
On Vancouver Island in Canada off-highway Kenworth 850s operated by Western Forest Products are later seen hard at work among the spectacular mountains of Gold River.
In the southern hemisphere Kenworth B-double combinations cope with the rugged terrain of Tasmania. In New Zealand's north island the unforgettable spectacle of Rod Dahm's double-trailer outfits and the unique Pacific 'Twin Power' have been caught on film . Finally, we take a look at the Dai Wood operation in Wales using the first Volvo FMX tractor unit sold in the UK.
