HPE Africa and Hintech Forestry recently delivered a new HT shovel yarder 300 HLS mounted on a new Hyundai R220LC-9S excavator to Timber Logging Services, a contractor for SAPPI in the Mamre area, Mpumalanga.
TLS is owned by Mandla Nxumalo, an astute and hands-on operator who is making great strides within the forestry sector. Having a management background in mining, Mandla is no stranger to adversity, and he applies the same work ethic and expertise to forestry. TLS has opted for the Hyundai R220LC-9S HT shovel yarder, as the machines are proven to be extremely robust, simple to operate with a high production vs cost ratio.
The HT shovel yarder is available in different specs to suit the customer’s needs. We offer uphill & downhill, as well as a dedicated uphill configuration – catering to high leading and skylining operations.
