SWEDISH-MADE HULT­DINS GRAP­PLES AND grap­ple saws are now sold in New Zealand and Aus­tralia un­der the Waratah brand

Waratah and Hult­dins have a long run­ning part­ner­ship and this lat­est move is seen as an ex­ten­sion of that re­la­tion­ship. Waratah has man­u­fac­tured har­vester and pro­ces­sor heads with the Hult­dins Su­per­cut saw sys­tems for many decades and for the last 11 years Waratah has dis­trib­uted the Hult­dins felling head, the FL85 to ev­ery cor­ner of the world.

Un­der the lat­est move Waratah and Hult­dins have inked a distribution part­ner­ship to of­fer the en­tire port­fo­lio of the Hult­dins at­tach­ment range for the Aus­tralasian mar­kets. This in­cludes more than 38 dif­fer­ing types of forestry grap­ples, eight types of con­struc­tion grap­ples and five dif­fer­ing chain­saw mod­ules that can be fit­ted to al­most ev­ery grap­ple.

Waratah says the deal is the re­sult of cus­tomer de­mand, with Waratah-branded grap­ples and grap­ple saws go­ing on sale for the first time last month (June).

“We’re ex­cited to be­gin of­fer­ing these new lines of grap­ples and grap­ple saws to our cus­tomers down un­der,” says Jules Larsen, Gen­eral Man­ager of Distribution and Op­er­a­tors for Waratah Asia Pa­cific and Africa.

“Hult­dins’ his­tory of man­u­fac­tur­ing ex­cel­lence is a nat­u­ral match and com­ple­men­tary prod­uct line fit to Waratah Forestry Equip­ment’s range of distribution lines.

“The ad­di­tion of these new lines now pro­vides log­gers down un­der with as­sur­ance of qual­ity grap­ple prod­ucts and con­fi­dence that we have their back in af­ter­sales.”

Hult­dins, which is based in Mala, Swe­den, is one of the world’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of at­tach­ment prod­uct lines and has been de­vel­op­ing and en­gi­neer­ing prod­ucts for more than 90 years with tens of thou­sands of its prod­ucts be­ing used in the for­est ev­ery day.

As part of this part­ner­ship, Waratah staff have re­ceived train­ing on the grap­ple lines to co­in­cide with the ar­rival of the first range of in­ven­tory, which also in­cluded a wide range of spare parts.


Hult­dins grap­ples and grap­ple saws are now avail­able in New Zealand and Aus­tralia un­der the Waratah brand.
