In recent years these qualities have been recognised in the UK where they are particular suited to low impact forestry and conservation work.

What sets alpine tractors apart from other types of compact tractor is that they can oscillate by 15 degrees on the front axle. This means that all four wheels are kept in contact with the ground even on rough or sloped terrain. This makes they very safe to use and much less likely to slip or roll.

They also have the engine mounted in front of the front wheels. This means they have a very good centre of balance and can lift large loads on the rear three-point linkage.

Alpine tractors come in two basic types.

Rigid steering and articulated steering.

Rigid steering means the front wheels turn like a conventional tractor. This makes them suited to steep slopes where you need the rigid chassis but this does decrease the turning circle.

Articulated machines bend in the middle to steer. This gives them an incredible turning circle but does make them less suited to slope work.

Another feature on some models of alpine tractor is reversible or bi-directional seating. This means the seat and controls can be spun 180 degrees and the tractor driven forwards in reverse! This is brilliant on some jobs where you don’t want to have to turn the tractor for example you can reverse drive up to a log, attach it to the tractor, spin the seat around and drive out forwards!
