Slack Pulling Carriage Model 23 & 23S

Carriage Descripton:

The ACME Model 23 hydraulic slack pulling carriage is the next size up from the ACME Model 210 carriage. The Model 23 is a 2-speed carriage ideally built to run on a 3/4″ – 7/8” skyline but is certainly not limited to those skyline sizes. The Model 23 carriage is a clear choice for the timber harvester who is looking for a light weight, versatile carriage that is built to perform.

The ACME Model 23S hydraulic slack pulling carriage (shackle top) has the ability to pass flush shackles up to 1 1/8″ during operation. The main difference between the Model 23 and 23S is the Model 23S has 10″ Tommy Moore skyline sheaves and a special skyline clamp that throws out of the way to pass over a flush shackle or an intermediate support.
