Faced with environmental, policy and demographic challenges that are here to stay, Canadian contractors must innovate and adapt to survive.

Winch assisting is one such innovation, but its success requires loggers to understand and apply key research, learnings, insights and methodology.

New Zealand logger and owner of DC Equipment, Dale Ewers, is taking the stage at OptiLog – Forestry Tech Forum on June 8 in Kelowna, B.C., to share learnings from the past decade of winch assisting.

Featured session: What does winch assisting success look like? A decade of learnings


Dale Ewers’ presentation will cover how winch assisting has changed and what we envisage in the future, adapting planning and log extraction for improved efficiencies, and winch assist methods for maximal productivity and safety, as well as offer case studies and research findings from productivity studies.
