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 SNATCHBLOCK TP14
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

||4) FARMI KEYHOLE SLIDERS LL2, LL6
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

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.
