Waratah Forestry Equipment partners with Hultdins to extend its grapple and grapple saw portfolio in Australia and New Zealand

Melbourne, Victoria (June 18, 2018) – Waratah Forestry Equipment and Hultdins have formed a distribution partnership to offer an extended product line of grapples and grapple saws to Waratah customers in Australia and New Zealand.

The Waratah-branded grapples and grapple saws are a result of customer demand and will become available for purchase in June.

“We’re excited to begin offering these new lines of grapples and grapple saws to our customers down under,” said Jules Larsen, general manager of distribution and operators for Waratah Asia Pacific and Africa. “Hultdins’ history of manufacturing excellence is a natural match and complimentary product line fit to Waratah Forestry Equipment’s range of distribution lines.”

Hultdins, which is based in Mala, Sweden, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of attachment product lines and has been developing and engineering products for more than 90 years with tens of thousands of its products being used in the forest every day.

“Over the course of our 40-year history, Waratah has developed a reputation for superior aftermarket technical support and world-class parts systems,” said Larsen. “The addition of these new lines now provides loggers down under with assurance of quality grapple products and confidence that we have their back in aftersales.”

As part of this partnership, Waratah staff has received training on the grapple lines with the recent arrival of the first range of grapple inventory and wide range of spare parts. For more information about this announcement, please contact Jules Larsen at
