SuperDuty Logging

Oct. 21, 2016

According to the Forestry Association of South Carolina, the forestry industry contributes over $18 billion to our economy in South Carolina. At Walterboro Ford, we understand how important logging is to our state and our loyal customers. That's why we offer so many full-sized trucks to help you get your forestry jobs done right. While there are many options when it comes to Ford trucks, we firmly believe that the 2016 Ford Superduty F-250 and F-350 are great choices if you work in any aspect of the forestry industry. Let's take a closer look at why these full-sized powerhouses are the right logging pickup trucks for you.

2017 Ford Superduty F-250

The first pickup for logging we want to check out is the 2016 Ford Superduty F-250. This powerhouse is available in five trim levels, three cab sizes (Crew, Regular, Super), and comes with a choice of two engines. Since you'll need all the performance you can get for hauling and towing, you can pick the 6.2-liter two-valve V8 gas FFV SOHC engine that puts out 385 horsepower at 5700 rpm and 430 lb.-ft. of torque at 3800 rpm or the impressive 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel that produces 440 horsepower at 2800 rpm and a mind-blowing 925 lb.-ft. of torque at 1800 rpm. When you combine these with the available TorqShift G six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission, you retain performance even while hauling up to 4,200 pounds and towing as much as 18,000 pounds.

Because you will be spending so much time in your 2017 Ford Superduty F-250, it's good to know that you don't have sacrifice a smooth ride and safety. You get a ton of standard features including AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, trailer sway control, integrated trailer brake controller, 18-inch painted cast aluminum wheels, heavy-duty gas shocks, and a Safety Canopy System with roll-fold side-curtain airbags. The final touch is the extremely helpful class-exclusive Tailgate Step with Tailgate Assist that makes it easier and safer to access your payload. When you put all these features together, you are looking at a great truck for logging or any forestry work.

2017 Ford Superduty F-350

If you are looking for even more toughness, performance, and strength, we suggest you step up to the 2017 Ford Superduty F-350. While it shares many of the same
features as the 2017 Ford Superduty F-250 including engine choices, this heavy-duty truck offers more in the way of hauling and towing power. You get up to 7,630 pounds in maximum payload and 32,000 pounds in 5th Wheel Gooseneck Towing capacity. No matter which Ford truck you end up going with, you are covered by a variety of
warranties including a three-year/36,000 mile Bumper to Bumper, and the always helpful Powertrain warranty that covers you for up to five years and 100,000 miles for
diesel models.
