Alpine Logging specializes in converting conventional construction excavators into high production logging equipment.

Alpline Logging can convert your new or used excavator into a high production “Alpine Shovel Yarder” onsite wherever you are located in the world.

The “Alpine Shovel Yarder” conversion consists of a multi drum winch set, a logging boom and fairlead fitted to the excavator boom or arm, and a hydraulic control package necessary to convert your ‘shovel’ into an efficient cable yarder. Alpine Shovel Yarders do not need guyropes to stabilize the tower, which means the Alpine Shovel Yarder can operate as a true mobile, mini swing yarder.


Alpine Logging can also turn your excavator into an efficient log loader.  Add a single drum winch and your loader becomes a really versatile piece of logging equipment.
