The mechanical felling wedge was created when we encountered a real problem. After again a large silver fir tree took too much power and time to wedge it, the idea for a light and low-maintenance felling aid came up in winter 2012: the mechanical felling wedge. It quickly became clear that the mechanical one should not remain a one-off and go into series production. This was the case in 2014 when the mechanical felling wedge was presented to the public at Interforst 2014 and became a success story. Whether in the professional sector or in private forests – the mechanical felling wedge is always a reliable helper.
