Time Saving Skidding Accessories

   
   
1.) Skidding Chains
Pulling out the winch cable and carrying the chains to the felled trees has typically been the heaviest part of a skidder operation. The unique Farmi sensor and brake system has made the pulling out of the cable very easy. The Farmi skidding chains are lightweight but strong as they are made of top quality materials such as boron steel. A timesaving primer pin is fastened to the chains. This primer pin makes it easier to pass the chain underneath a felled tree. The pin is first pushed underneath the tree and then the chain is pulled through from the pin.

3.) Farmi Self-Releasing Snatch Block TP14
   
When obstacles prevent direct winching, or when the remaining trees are to be protected from damage, a self-releasing snatch block should be used. The Farmi snatch block releases the cable when the keyhole slider reaches it. The snatch block is attached to an anchor tree with a nylon strap which prevents damage to the tree. The automatic cable release works only when the pulley is turned upside down, which is when the release mechanism is facing the ground. The self-releasing snatch block can be used with 9/16" and smaller cable.
   

  4.) Farmi Keyhole Sliders LL2, LL6
The Farmi keyhole sliders are used with the Farmi skidding chains. The JL61, and JL2/601 have LL6 keyhole sliders. All other models have LL2 keyhole sliders.
 
The LL2 size is used for cable up to 1/2" and skidding chains up to 5/16".
   
The LL6 size is used for cable up to 3/4" and skidding chains from 5/16" to 7/16".
   

5.) Remote Control Reel NK45
The remote control reel can be used with all Farmi winches. The reel has 145' of nylon rope which is automatically rewound onto the reel. The case is made of impact resistant plastic.

Weight: 6 ½ lbs.

The remote control reels should not be used in adverse weather such as snow or ice storms or in environment where the rope can come in contact with branches or trees. The operator should walk on the side of the load at a distance where he is safe from eventual breakage of skidding chains or the cable.

7.) LK2 hook for the End of the Cable
   

 

8.) Protective Screen
A protective screen which bolts on to the winch is available for all current Farmi winches. The protective screen is necessary if the operator is sitting on the tractor when winching. The screen protects the operator from injury which could be caused by a breaking cable or skidding chain.
