MechLog runs and maintains one of the most modern harvesting and forwarding fleets in Australia. In the Green Triangle, the fleet utilises the Komatsu Maxi Vision system. This system provides a vast amount of information to MechLog and the customer, including the position of logs in the coupe, the volume, and the time and date it was cut. All MechLog’s equipment is networked so all operators have situational awareness of the coupe.

All MechLog’s harvesting equipment use optimising technologies to maximise value from every coupe, to benefit the forest owners and ensure the best return on investment for all stakeholders.
