Based in South Germany, the foundation for what is today's versatile business was laid by Franz Hochleitner 35 years ago, through his own forestry work on steep slopes. Today contracting work is still much the core of the business, as is also the supply of their own line of purpose built forestry equipment, which has been developed and produced through years of their own user knowledge and experience.

The equipment offered is tried and tested in house, which includes a range of innovative and modern skyline carriages, and constant and traction pulling force winches, suited to a variety of base machines.

The purpose is to simplify felling techniques, making it safer and gentler for both the operator and the forest. Franz Hochleitner stands for the willingness to seek new solutions and to accept technical challenges.
