Durable Forestry Equipment

Bell Equipment's presence in the forestry sector dates back to the 1960s when the Bell Tri-Wheeler was adapted as a versatile Logger by fitting a robust timber grab. Since then our range of forestry equipment has grown to include purpose built Haulage Tractors complemented by a variety of Timber Trailer options as well as 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 are also an appointed dealer for Waratah Heads and the full range of John Deere forestry equipment solutions. The purpose-built John Deere fully mechanised systems are seen as a global benchmark in terms of productivity, lowest daily operating costs and uptime. Our other Bell products, particularly Dozers and Graders, are also used in the forestry industry for infrastructure and road maintenance.
