Irion sideloaders for logger

James Jones & Sons has taken delivery of Irion sideloaders at three of its timber operations in Scotland, supplied by Barloworld Handling, to transport and store timber products.


The firm harvests trees from British forests and processes the logs in its six automated sawmills.

Iain Gale, logyard manager at the site in Southern Scotland said: “We have materials handling requirements throughout the site and need a partner that can supply and backup a range of tough forklift trucks and sideloaders.”

“With the introduction of the new Irion Sideloader, we have optimised the complete cycle of operation, transporting timber loads of up to 4.8m from production to storage and then onto distribution, which includes distances of up to 200 metres”
