Logging transport in forests and on the road with the same efficiency
Feb. 23 2021
Logging transport requires a vehicle that is at ease driving both on uneven ground in the forest, and out on the open road. The timber lorries and services offered by Renault Trucks are indeed both robust and efficient. Our advisors can guide you when choosing the most appropriate options for your activity.
Select a robust timber lorry to ensure higher performance levels and safety
Loading timber in the forest and transporting it is a delicate operation, sometimes conducted in testing conditions. The loading area can be hard to access as the roads or paths are narrow and in poor condition. The transported loads are often very heavy and cumbersome. Robustness is a key quality for your trucks. When off-road in the loading area, all your vehicle’s technical features will be extremely useful.
The Renault Trucks K XTREM 6x4 tractor boasts a loading capacity of up to 34 tonnes, and up to 120 tonnes in terms of GCW (Gross Combination Weight). It was specially designed for high-intensity situations. Its chassis is fitted with reinforced stringers, parabolic 4-bladed springs, and a 100% steel shield with protected headlights.

Reduce your maintenance costs
The conditions in which timber transport is carried out can be particularly demanding for your vehicles, namely in terms of brakes and suspensions. The quality ensured by Renault Trucks’ original parts makes for high performance and durability. As such, your work tool will be available for longer.
When a part needs replacing, Renault Trucks offers new genuine Renault Trucks parts but also has an alternative solution: its standard exchange service. As part of this programme, original parts are renovated and tested in a dedicated factory before being put back on the market. They offer the same level of performance and the same features as new ones, and have a two-year warranty (parts and labour). By using recycled parts, you can reduce your maintenance budget and contribute to the circular economy and to the principle of sustainable development.
Moreover, to better anticipate maintenance and minimise vehicle downtime, Renault Trucks also offers personalised maintenance plans, created in partnership with you in keeping with your logging transport needs. Your budget can therefore be planned, controlled and staggered throughout the entire duration of the contract you opt for. This also means you can keep your vehicles for longer, thanks to regular and high-standard maintenance provided by the brand. In aiming to boost vehicle availability, you could also call upon the mobile workshops set up by Renault Trucks - where technicians come on site, directly to your place of work, to inspect your vehicles.
