Forestry machinery

Forestry machinery has to offer full functionality under a host of different conditions and in the most difficult terrain. Operator handling of such machinery must be highly flexible and precise. Large variations in the lifting and loading processes of forestry equipment require extremely dynamic hydraulic controls. Speed, accuracy, and consistent performance even under continuous load are essential in such situations. For years now, our customers have appreciated the benefits afforded by Thomas relay valves, which are primarily used in this industry as pilot valves on the key hydraulic components of harvesters and timber forwarders.
