Timber transport (short log truck) is a type of the specialized truck body intended for transportation of sawed timber from the area of timber harvesting to the place of processing, storage or transshipment point (harbor, railway station and so on).
The specifics of the auto chassis of the timber transport include increased off-road performance. This type of transportation often should move through relatively heavy-going areas (roads in the forest, field, unsurfaced road and off-road) - accordingly, the priority is given to the cars with several guide axles or all-wheel drive ones, obligatory equipped with schnorkels. These trucks are often equipped with lifter winches, and automatic wheel air inflating is possible. The off-road performance of timber transport is definitely lower than that of harvesters and forwarders, but this is regained due to relatively high сruise speed on the general use roads.
The special metallic U-shaped frames, which are intended for holding the timber assortment (timber compliant with specific standards), are the basic functional element of the body. Special tightening lashing straps are used for additional fixation. Many bodies of the timber transport are equipped with truck mounted cranes, which allow conducting the whole process of loading and unloading without using any additional equipment. Moreover, upon arrival at destination, the whole pile of timber tightened by straps can be unloaded in its entirety with the use of a separate crane.
