Logging Trucks News, Videos, and Information

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.

Straight trucks generally have a loader mounted on the back of the truck for self-loading. You can find new and used logging trucks for sale from the leading equipment manufacturers right here.
