The skidding cone is an essential tool for small-scale timber harvesting activities. It prevents logs from getting stuck in roots, stumps and other obstacles. Its elliptical-shaped nose makes it robust and allows it to slide along residual trees, thus avoiding injuries during regeneration. Made of high-performance polymer plastic, it is lightweight, flexible and virtually unbreakable.
Its large opening can fit a trunk of 50 cm in diameter, or several bundled stems. The friction on the ground is considerably reduced, which makes it possible to pull heavier loads. It can be used with a portable winch, behind an all-terrain vehicle, a snowmobile, a small tractor and even a horse, in any season, since it can withstand temperatures down to -30 °C (-22 °F) ).
The cone is a must-have for pulling logs with a capstan winch!
