Photos found of hard drive: Old logging operation and trucks. PIC HEAVY

I got an old computer from the tip shop and found a lot of old photos of Tasmanian logging and trucks.

I hope they're of interest to someone out there.

I started work in the logging industry in 1975 and well remember that time with the old Macks etc. I reckon I seen the last of the single rider logs leave our local forest in that era, the biggest I remember was split with explosives so it would fit on the truck, 3 loads for the first section of the tree. This was on the nw of tassie. I think one of the names on the truck was Groves, my second employer was a Groves but they were into mining/earth moving.
cheers

See if you can find a timber industry museum or even the state museum or state library down there - they would like those pics I reckon and even better with a story as to how they came to be "saved".

Cheers

Tasmanian greenies I`m sure would like a copy Some mighty big logs being logged in some of those photo`s. Photo`s seem to cover a long time span. From what looks to be the sixties to near present.

Pics of cable logging are interesting, pretty much one of the most dangerous jobs still around in oz.... Had a mate log truck driving for a few years, very dangerous as well (as are most logging industry jobs), I am happy he has moved on....

Thanks also and I will pass the URL to the Historic Commercial Vehicle crowd. Maybe someone will recognise them.

As Zuno55 noted logging is a dangerous business. My natural father was killed in a logging accident when I was 2. My adoptive father was also a logger ( go figure?) and luckily in 40 years of logging only sufferd relative light injuries. Had a few very close calls though.
