Vimek thinning concept

Wisdom is inherited. In 60 years from now, her children will take care of the forest as carefully as their grandfather. It is about creating value for future generations. We call it Vimek thinning concept, forest owners call it easy and simple.

Whether it is the forest owner himself or a contractor who sit behind the controls – a good revenue will developed the forest when it is young.

Imagine yourself a first thinning, and then think that you can finally make thinning based out from the forest condition. By using Vimek, you do not create wide forest roads and remove unnecessary number of trees. You can have the best trees to remain, so your forest will be less sensitive storm and provide more wood for higher quality. That is thinning, high quality thinning by Vimek concept!

Study a thinning object when using Vimeks concept afterwards, is an experience. In fact, there exists no other harvester in Vimek size. That’s why we talk about the complete light-weight program. Since the overall economy is a big part of the successes among our Vimek contractors, they can actually afford a break now and then. Not to forget, but it might be nice for the contractor also to pick up the kids at daycare or bring them to the sports activities in the evenings.

It’s not only the forest in need of care.


Unique Vimek

Vimek’s patented Brake link gives much more effective handling without dangerous oscillation of the grapples. It’s also possible to load the trees standing out from the forest objects. The brake link is hydraulically controlled and brakes only when needed.

Vimek’s harvesters have a dual turning function. The harvester turns both in the waist and the front axle. This gives an extreme maneuverability that adapts the driving to the forest instead of the other way around. It’s even possible to position the machine so that the rear and front wheels do not run in the same tracks, thereby conserving the ground that much more.

Vimek’s Brake link in combination with Vimek’s Tilt grapple allows you to quick, easy and with less stress on the machine even the ends of the logs. The results will be well loaded trailer and less damage to the remaining standing trees.

Low fuel consumption thanks to small, effective and powerful engines.
