Durable Forestry Equipment

Since the 1960s when the Bell Tri-Wheeler was adapted as a versatile Logger by fitting a robust timber grab, Bell Equipment has been focused on the industry.  Today our range of forestry equipment has grown to include purpose-built Haulage Tractors complemented by Articulated Timber Trucks. Our forestry equipment continues to be indispensable in numerous forestry operations and is best suited to handle the arduous forestry environment. In addition to our Bell range of forestry equipment we offer innovative mechanised solutions through our Matriarch Equipment division. Our other Bell products, particularly Graders, are also used in the forestry industry for infrastructure and road maintenance.
