Over 110 of the best loggers in the world met up in Wisla to compete in five disciplines. Our very own Arian Essenstam from the Netherlands was one of the first competitors to take the stand. Using a Husqvarna 576XP, Arian took down his tree and scored a perfect 660 points, the maximum points possible. He also did this in a time of 129.02 seconds, earning him the world record in felling at WLC!
Yoan Caparros from France stunned the crowed as he fitted a new chain at an amazing 8.41 seconds, only 0.05 seconds slower than the current world record. Shortly after, Estonia’s Taavi Ehrpais performed a winning execution of precision bucking, securing Husqvarna’s third gold. Both Yoan and Taavi competed with the Husqvarna 576XP.
Richard Elliot from the United Kingdom delivered a perfect limbing routine, removing 30 branches from his log in only 16.23 seconds. Using a Husqvarna 372XP, he finished over four seconds faster than the first runner up.
Congratulations to our gold medallists!
