Designed for industrial plant premises and timber handling terminals, the main application of the machine is the fast, mobile transport of timber.

Liebherr anticipates that the log handler will be reliable and powerful tool for businesses such as  wood-processing companies and sawmills, but especially useful for transhipment hubs and inland ports.
