Logging Trucks are large trucks utilized in the transport of logs and can have multiple configurations to fit your needs. There are types that are suited for the rough terrain of the forests, while others are made for on-highway applications. Winches or cranes may be fitted on the trucks to aid in loading the logs. Several types of truck and trailer combinations may be used, such as truck and pole trailers, semi-trucks with double bunk trailers and straight trucks. Straight trucks generally have a loader mounted on the back of the truck for self-loading.
