FORESTRY BOOMS


THIS PRODUCT LINE FEATURES THESE TECHNOLOGIES :

Finite
Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA), combined with computer-aided motion analysis software, allows our design team to eliminate structural “hotspots” where structural strength is critical to the long-term integrity of the product. Learn more.


Pierce Forestry Booms offer optimum working range, strong lifting characteristics and are the most proven and reliable booms in the forest today. Each boom is designed and manufactured by our skilled team, allowing you to order a boom specifically engineered to accommodate your application, as well as machine make and model.

Live heel or butt n top; straight or cambered main section; top mounted heel cylinder; 2-piece or 3-piece; long, short or standard lengths; and standard or through-the-snoot heel rack...you name it, Pierce can provide you the best possible tool for your specific job.



The efficient design of Pierce Pacific.

Pierce Live Heel Forestry Booms offer maximum working range and lifting capacity with optimum weight distribution and cylinder size. These hard-working booms can be engineered to accommodate special applications or length requirements; from shovel logging and loading to mill yard unloading and sorting. Pierce booms are also ideal for close-in log handling, long reach for stacking and loading, and provide superior above grade and ‘down-over-the-bank’ characteristics. Solid design and construction makes them last longer to extend your productivity even more.

For those that alternate between grapples and processing heads: the heel rack length is designed appropriately offering optimum geometry and leverage while heeling logs, and while fully retracted minimizing interference with the processor.

Also available: Fixed heels when a live heel is not required.
