The German Hochenloher Spezial-Maschinenbau GmbH & Co
HSM is reporting 50 years of success in the field of development, sales and customer services of forestry machines.
The reason for starting the company stems from the commitment of the Hohenlohe-Waldenburg family to the 200-year history of sustainable management of its own forests, which was first mentioned in the history books in 1553.
Their idea moved from experiences with Timberjack to their own designs: "It must be possible to provide top-notch services, long lasting design engineering and the best ergonomics for the purpose of forestry," stated the HSM company founder in 1967.
Their machines were drawn and designed based on experiences from the difficult-to-manage Keuper locations in their own forests. HSM says, they have the ideal forestry machinery for all circumstances, with fields of application from thinning and all the way to harvesting of full size trees.
"Forestry and forestry technology" combined influenced the implementation of the technology. They wanted to design and test machines that the forestry needs; machines that conserve soil and the environment.
It's almost 50 years since the company was founded and the drawing board is a thing of the past, but the original goal has reminded the same: To provide the modern forestry industry with optimal forestry technology that delivers high-performance and economical results.
What HSM machines have in common is production from a single source, direct from the manufacturer and most importantly, without complex modification work from a third party. The individual needs of their clients can be completely implemented without delay, from sales consultancy to delivery.
The HSM product line includes articulated skidders, forwarders, harvesters and combination forestry machines. The company says, they have a long tradition of sustainable care of the soil and production in the forests.
With narrow machines and wide tyres, the technical navigability of logging trails is maintained and forestry is supported in a way that is both economically and ecologically sustainable.
