• Pierce Live Heel
    Forestry Booms:
    Simply Beyond Compare.

    Our forestry booms are the standard by which all others are measured. In fact, several manufacturers have even tried to copy our design. But Pierce forestry booms are in a class by themselves. Each one is uniquely designed and built to handle the long-term wear and tear demanded by North American loggers and forestry conditions. In fact, we challenge any other manufacturer to know and understand North America’s forests as well as we do!

EFFICIENT LIVE HEEL BOOM DESIGN.

Pierce forestry booms offer the ideal working range for close-in log handling, long reach for stacking and loading, and superior above grade and “down-over-the-bank” benefits. Solid construction gives you the added confidence of knowing that this hard-working boom will make the most of your investment season after season.

Pierce booms are Pierce built, which means you can count on a top-tier machine with full product support and fast delivery on all service parts. Three more great reasons why our forestry booms have set the standard in the woods for decades.

  • Pierce Butt N Top
    Forestry Booms.

    Pierce Butt N Top forestry booms are the toughest workhorses on the market today.
    We design and manufacture each one ourselves, assuring superior strength at every turn.

    All Pierce-built booms are plumbed for “valve in head” grapples.
    However, if you prefer a “valve on machine” configuration, just let us know.
    We’ll add the additional plumbing required right in our factory.

    Our booms come with a standard straight main boom configuration —
    or, for better under boom loading visibility, choose our cambered main boom configuration.

    These high performance booms are Pierce-built right here in North America,
    which means you can expect rugged construction, plus top-notch support,
    years of experience, and fast delivery on all service parts.

    Try getting all that from any other manufacturer!

    Means the Right
    Boom for the Job.

    Need two more feet of reach? More up angle? More lifting power? We hear you.

    At Pierce, we realize that each millyard and sortyard is unique
    and has different log decking and worksite requirements. That’s why we thoroughly analyze your application
    before designing a machine that provides the precise configuration to meet your specific needs.

    After all, why settle for an off-the-shelf loader when you can get exactly what your yard requires?

WORK TOOLS AVAILABLE FROM PIERCE:

  • Harvester/Processor
    Booms: Profitability
    Within Range.

    Stop limiting your production by limiting your effective processing working range. After all, you wouldn’t put a processor on a machine designed to dig, right?

    Pierce harvester/processor booms are specially designed and built to maximize your working range, as well as your capacity for thinning, clear-cutting and landing-based processing.

    Our booms feature a two-piece configuration consisting of a straight main boom section and a long, droop nose stick to go as far as you need to—in the woods or roadside. Pierce booms are engineered for optimum performance with any harvester/processor head. And our wide range of sizes are available from a 20-metric-ton thinning machine to a 39-metric-ton big timber processor.

    Now you no longer have to settle for “good enough.” Because in today’s competitive environment, it isn’t.
