A forestry truck-mounted crane is multi-purpose equipment used for various forestry operations from loading to transportation. Manufacturers are focusing on developing truck-mounted cranes used for forestry operations, combined with the latest technologies, materials, and components of the highest quality. Advanced forestry truck-mounted cranes have top lever performance and weight ratio, enhancing efficiency and reliability and increasing productivity. In addition, the design is based on durability and a longer life span, which ensures excellent resale value and uninterrupted operations. The growth in the market is primarily due to the rising need for timber, forestry products, and biomass.

Forestry operations are getting more and more mechanized nowadays. The most important trend is the rapidly shifting demand from traditional truck-mounted cranes toward premium efficiency truck-mounted cranes. This is particularly attributed to the international quality assurance program, safety, and practical performance tests, which each crane goes through during the production phase.

The demand is increasing for hydraulics in forestry operations nowadays. Both individual entrepreneurs and individual operators are using hydraulic cranes. Inverter drives are expected to become the standard for upcoming truck-mounted crane motions. Radio remote control will replace the traditional truck-mounted cranes, which need to operate manually, as the technology is becoming cheaper and safer. End users have also started realizing the value of having truck-mounted cranes with lesser wheel loads and less sophistication and evaluating these specifications before making purchase decisions. With latest technologies and availability of comprehensive equipment and accessories makes it possible to provide the tailored product to meet the requirement of each end user.
