Developed in the forest with collaboration from logging crews every step of the way means the single rope Falcon Winch Assist is engineered to be uncomplicated, simple to operate and easy to maintain.

  • The Felling Machine Operator only has to manage one rope when operating down the slope reducing complexity and potential for snags.
  • The Winch System design provides less mechanical and electrical complexity and therefore opportunity for faults and breakdowns.
  • The Winch Unit is enclosed by rear guarding for protection with easy access points for maintenance.


The Falcon Winch Assist has been designed and tested through thousands of operational hours in a wide range of slope and soil conditions. As a result we’ve developed a number of safety features to eliminate operator risk.

  • Overspeed Alarm triggering a rope management system in the Winch which automatically slows it down to prevent shock-loading.
