Caterpillar has introduced the 322C Forest Machine. It
can be configured as a log loader, delimber or roadbuilder.
The 322C FM is powered by a Cat‚ 3126 TA (turbocharged

improves productivity with faster implement speed

both hydraulic pumps so they use 100 percent of available
engine power in all operating conditions.
The cab is quiet with ergonomically designed. Low-effort
controls, an ergonomic seat, and efficient ventilation help
reduce operator fatigue.

Auburn / Pinheiro 1000 series of 20" and 34" wide double
surfacers and planer/molders. The module lowers the cost

stock. This optional top infeed head improves finish quality
and extends the sharpness time of the finish knives by
removing the gravel dust and other debris collected on the
top surface of the stock during storage and transportation.
It also allows over thickness lumber, glued panels, flitches,
cants, timbers and laminated beams to be finished sized
or profiled in a single pass. For more details, contact
