“Cut The Umbilical Cord”® with a self-powered slasher mounted on a self-propelled track carrier similar to tracked chippers and grinders. The low and long undercarriage keeps the slasher close to the ground and stable. It can be turned and adjusted at a moment’s notice to fit the ever changing scene on a modern logging job. All with no hydraulics or electrics to hook up. The radio remote control can be used in any log handling machine.
