Should the chain saw not work one morning, then consider Sisu Logmecs latest £260,000 timber harvester. With the capacity to "final fell" about 250 cu m/day, this six-wheel drive Valmet 921 earns itself a place in the big league. The 210hp machine has a telescopic 9m (29ft) boom with harvesting head and self-levelling cab, all mounted on a common slewing ring. A low centre of gravity and operating weight of 18t will see the 921 at home on slopes of up to one in 2.5.
