logLINE forwarding trailers

logLINE forwarding trailers

The logLINE forwarding trailers offer powerful professional machinery for forestry contractors and transporters. The three models offer uncompromising performance and optimum cost effectiveness both in standing timber and on forwarding trails. The forwarding trailers are equipped  with a heavy lift crane of the 6 or 7 mt class, optimising them for used with powerful tractors.

More details on the logLINE forwarding trailers


The strong frame structure which is based on a torsion-resistant central spar is the basis for the excellent off-road handling properties of the Pfanzelt forwarding trailer, even when loaded. The central spar is made of fine grain steels to cope with the highest loads. Besides maximum stability, this design offers maximum ground clearance. The frame is only welded to the crane support in the front area, meaning that the strength of the central spar is not compromised.

Frame extension

The flat bed can be extended by up to 1,500 mm for the transport of various timber lengths by means of an integrated, extensible frame.

Stanchion widening

All stanchions can be extended laterally. The stanchion cage extension is thus 300 mm. This increases the flat bed area by 0.5 m2.


The draw bar of the logLINE forwarding trailer is available in a bottom hitch version. The bearings of the pivoting draw bar in the form of lubricatable and adjustable spherical articulated bearings ensure long-term operating safety of this component that is subject to heavy loading.

When the trailer is fitted with an independent hydraulic oil supply, the powerful piston pump is protected from damage by concealed mounting either above or below the draw bar.

Draw bar

Draw bar suspension/tilt

On L16 and L19 models, the trailer can be equipped with a draw bar suspension / tilt system. The steering draw bar also become a tilting device by the provision of an additional cylinder. This feature enables the flat bed to be placed in a horizontal position and the crane column vertically on slopes. During travel, this device acts as suspension, thus increasing driving safety and comfort.

Steerable draw bars Pfanzelt forwarding trailers are equipped as standard with a pivoting draw bar with a large steering angle. The maximum excursion from the centre is +/- 860 mm. Reliable operation even when the loaded rear trailer is turned uphill is assured by two powerful hydraulic cylinders. The pivoting moment is thus 35 kNm (at an oil pressure of 200 bar). The steerable draw bar is mechanically locked when driving on roads. In a one-man system this is achieved by two protective flaps.

Bogie axle

The bogie axle of Pfanzelt forwarding trailers offers stability during crane operation and the best possible drive characteristics, especially in forwarding trails. The large pendulum travel of the bogie axle has a range of up to 360 mm. This enables that the trailer can safely drive over branches and other obstacles. The even distribution of the ground pressure is another big advantage.

For protection against damage due to driving over trunks and projecting branches, the underside of the trailer is smooth. Cables and hoses are concealed for maximum protection.

The bogie axle is mounted on lubricatable and adjustable spherical articulated bearings. This guarantees true running for many years.

Brake system and approval for use on public highways

Brake systems

Pfanzelt logLINE forwarding trailers are equipped as standard with a braking system that acts on four wheels. This braking system is pneumatically actuated. The compact diaphragm brake cylinders are completely encapsulated with a protective hood. This means that the brake system is protected from damage by branches or the gripper.

Approved for use on public highways

Travel on public roads is no problem for Pfanzelt machines, even when loaded. Depending on the equipment, a CoC document is available for 25 km/h.

LED lighting with turn signal monitoring
The lighting system using LED lights is integrated in the frame. To protect the lights when working in standing timber, these are protected by a robust plexiglass panel.


The new hydraulic wheel drive powerDRIVE made by Pfanzeltoffers a new wheel drive dimension. It is convincing in the forest and on the road.

  • 6.1 metric tons of maximum thrust
  • Proportional drive for forward and reverse travel
  • All brake systems available in combination with the wheel hub drive
  • Automatic drive switchoff when braking
  • Freewheel for wear-free road travel

The wheel hub drive is equipped with an electric control unit by which the driver can control the drive from the tractor’s cab. This allows the operator to switch between the simple drive for forward
travel and reversing and a hill start assistance.

Typ Thrust Maximum speed
2WD-II 3,1 t 8,2 km/h
4WD-II 6,1 t 4,1 km/h

Data depends on hydraulic oil quantity and pressure.

Stowage space

On the two sides of the forwarding trailer, there are two large storage bins with lockable lids. Here chain saws, fuel canisters and lashing straps can be neatly stowed away.


Pfanzelt forestry cranes are designed for professional duty. The Pfanzelt crane range includes loading cranes in various lift classes. All Pfanzelt cranes have a larger lifting force and a higher pivoting moment to enable powerful pivoting of the crane – even uphill.
