Jim,i think they are using these to bring loaded log trailers out of the woods (rough, hilly country) and dropping them up on a cleared area so the "road" trucks can take them where they go? The R-Model I saw was pulling a loaded log trailer out of here when we passed..................Mark

Yes, I remember seeing the program. The fellow was just riding along controlling everything with a couple of joysticks and a ton of switches! I also had a chance to check one out at a forestry equipment expo a few years ago.

The forest industry is using all the engineering and technology that they can get to put all personnel in a cab for each process for efficiency and safety. The insurance rates in the logging business are insane.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
