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.

When obstacles prevent direct winching, or when the remaining trees are to be protected from damage, a self-releasing snatchblock should be used.  The Farmi snatchblock releases the cable when the keyhole slider reaches it.  The snatchblock 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 snatchblock can be used with 9/16" and smaller cable.  click here for photo

The Farmi keyhole sliders are used with the Farmi skidding chains.  The JL60T, JL601, 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".  (click here for photo)

The LL6 size is used for cable up to 3/4" and skidding chains from 5/16" to 7/16". (click here for photo)

7)  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.
