Re-Manufacture Aging Logging Equipment
Add years of operation life to your aging logging equipment with a T-Mar ReLife.
With 30 years of experience behind us we have the know how and expertise to help you get the most use out of your aging equipment. T-MAR’s extensive core remanufacturing program, called a Re-Life, restores worn-out equipment of all kinds to like-new condition. It’s a great way to protect and upgrade your investment to bring your fleet to modern standards. Our program is so complete that many commercial lenders offer the same financing as is available for new equipment.

CASE STUDY: Rebuilding a fire damaged Madill 123 Yarder.
Bendickson Contracting's Madill 123 suffered a fire that destroyed the powertrain, hydraulics and cab. The structure was spared however, leaving T-MAR with a challenge; to rebuild the 123 without access to the now obsolete hydraulic components and gearbox.
The answer was to Re-Life the still good winch, components, and structure and update the rest. The powertrain and hydraulics were updated to a series 60 Detroit with Allison transmission and open loop A11V pump / Linde valve combination common on other machines. The drive and power input was modified to accomodate the new powertrain. The cab was updated to an ergonomic seat/pod style layout with updated airboard. All components used were those available for other common machines without modification to ensure widespread parts availability for years to come.
The project demonstrates the engineering abilities and craftsmanship applied in the T-MAR Re-Life Program.

CASE STUDY: Rebuilding a timed-out Madill 124 Yarder.
In 2013, though, the machine had timed out. It was becoming increasingly unreliable and
maintenance costs were getting out of hand. The 124 was sent to T-MAR to be put through their ReLife program. The extensive remanufacturing process saw every wire, hose, friction, nut and bolt replaced in the all inclusive program. The machine now operates with like-new reliability and productivity at a fraction of the cost of new.
