STORM CAT

New Zealand Logger - - New Iron -

Rachel Merritt, son Turoa Merritt and Turoa’s daugh­ter Stormy, have taken de­liv­ery of a new Cat 558LL For­est Ma­chine in their East Coast log­ging op­er­a­tion. Work­ing in big wood, the 558 han­dles it with ease. With a 336 slew bearing and 349 size un­der­car­riage, the op­er­a­tor says this unit has some se­ri­ous power and sug­gested he just throw the wood to the port! With an ul­tra-low fuel burn and high pro­duc­tiv­ity the re­wards for Storm Log­ging with this Cat are in­stant ev­ery hour worked.
