This course is available on the H&W Training website.


The course covers checking fittings, the condition, operation and the control system of the extraction equipment as fitted to vehicle, and explains alternative methods of chokering the timber. You will be manoeuvring the skidder equipment and carrying out operations in accordance with the job specification. The course also looks at the procedure for debogging the skidder.

This qualification is not a pre-requisite for other courses, but you may want to consider other training within the suite of FMO (forest machine operations) qualifications, such as forwarder, cable crane, flail / mulcher or processing.
