New Zealand Logger - - New Iron -

This Cat D5K dozer has been ac­quired by Jensen Log­ging to work on road­ing, form­ing land­ings and open­ing up roads for thin­ning blocks in Kain­garoa For­est. A key rea­son for owner Rus­sell Jensen adding the D5K to the Ro­torua-based op­er­a­tion is its com­pact­ness and abil­ity to move down tight thin­ning’s rows for op­er­a­tor John Murtagh. Also pic­tured with the D5K are Rus­sell Jensen and Rus­sell Brown. An­other ad­di­tion to the Jensen fleet is this new Cat 950M wheel loader. Fea­tur­ing En­sign log forks, the M-se­ries loader is also based in Kain­garoa to per­form fleet­ing and load­ing log­ging trucks, mainly dou­ble trailer unit trucks, which is in this ma­chine’s sweet spot as it’s the ideal size for them. Op­er­a­tor Gor­don Wil­liams (cen­tre) is pic­tured with Rus­sell Brown and Rachael Brown.
