Marris Couper Logging


Recently were were called out to test and calibrate the LOADRITE scales on Marris Couper Logging Volvo log loader. Operating in the outer Marlborough sounds on Arapawa Island on a forestry block with 120,000 tonnes of radiata pine which all has to be barged back to Shakespear Bay near Picton.

An early start on the water by 6:30am for a 50 minute boat ride to the site via water taxi was a great way to start the day, but the winter drizzle that hangs around was making itself felt with aid of a light Southerly  just to remind you it was winter. All the site roading works and harvesting is carried out by Marris Couper, the main loadout zone by the water is where the wheel loader operates. All logs are weighed onto the two operating barges which carry 660 tonnes and 1100 tonnes respectively. Harvesting with all variety of methods is required due to the variable nature of the block, steep and difficult access is common place down the sounds as is the clay and difficult ground conditions. 53
