Valves and Joysticks

BMF offers a wide variety of valve blocks for forestry cranes. Options include mechanical, prehydraulic and fully electric solutions, including a convenient possibility to control the crane wirelessly. Mechanical valve blocks are an affordable, classic option. Prehydraulic valve blocks are controlled by low-pressure (pilot pressure) joysticks. Fully electric valve blocks are controlled by a joystick with a cable connection or wireless. Compatibility of valve blocks and BMF crane models is available in the table below.
