A logging truck, sometimes known as a wood lorry, is a large truck used to transport logs. Some are standalone tractors, some have flatbeds built in, and some are made to divide a load between the tractors and a dollied trailer driven behind them. Several trailers are usually ʜɪᴛched.
There are two main types of modern logging trucks: those used for transportation on public highways and roads and those used on rocky terrain and forest trails where trees are cut. As a result of the uneven terrain and frequently improvised paths in forests, an offroad truck’s suspension and tires are very crucial. Tires have been used with both high and low pressures. To provide low ground pressure and superior traction, up to nine axles may be used.
A log truck’s ability to climb a gradient is significant since timber is commonly grown in steep areas that are unsuitable for farming. The slope is influenced by the terrain’s state; gravel and soil are simpler to climb than mud and snow. The speed for a bearable grade will subsequently be determined by the truck’s power. For instance, the permitted weight limits in the southern states of the United States are between 80,000 and 88,000 pounds (36,300 and 39,900 kg), or around 40 short tons (35.7 long tons; 36.3 t).
To load the logs, the truck may have a crane or a winch. The logs are typically unloaded by being let to roll sideways.
