Industry Risks

A significant risk within the forestry industry is the build-up of debris and timber chip on equipment. These ignition sources can ignite through heat and if there is hydraulic failure through a blow hose the fuel source can burn with intensity. Many owners never consider the fire risks and consequences of not being adequately equipped should a fire occur. Vehicle fires can start with a small fuel or oil leak onto a hot area in the engine compartment or due to an electrical fault in either the engine compartment or inside the cabin of the vehicle. Stockpiles of process timber increase the risk of fire migration and can spread fast.


Without fast suppression, one of the most prevalent consequences of a fire anywhere in the equipment is damage. With the high likelihood of the fire spreading, the damage may not only be contained to the ignition area, but to any areas reached by the fire or the smoke. If the fire spreads into the cabin, the lives of the driver and passengers are at risk of injury or death.

An undetected fire can cause a serious hazard if an essential component of the vehicle fails while the vehicle is moving, risking not only the lives of the people inside the vehicle but also surrounding people, equipment and stockpiles.

The BlazeCut Difference

While fire extinguishers are affordable and easy to install (and we recommend having at least one installed in every vehicle) there is always a risk of getting burnt if opening the engine hood to extinguish the fire.

BlazeCut Fire systems automatically actuates in the engine compartment when a fire occurs, extinguishing the fire in seconds leaving very minimal damage to your vehicle and keeping you safe. You can fit them yourself after reviewing the instructions, in most cases installation takes less than an hour or you can have a professional install it for you.
