Sarl AUBERTIN Frères, France
“We saw a clear increase in productivity”
The Aubertin family has a long tradition of forest work. It all began back when Nicolas and Mickael’s great-grandfather worked with skidding, using oxen. Nicolas and Mickael first spent a few years working together with their father, then established the company Sarl AUBERTIN Frères in 2004. In 2014, they bought a Komatsu 931.1 with a C144 head. - “We saw a clear increase in productivity with the C144 head. I also like the good measurement accuracy and the simple design. When it comes to the 931.1, the stability and the full-circle slewing and leveling cab provide optimal work comfort and enable the operator to handle challenging situations, especially in steep terrain”, says Mickael Aubertin. In 2015 they acquired a new Komatsu 855.1 equipped with Comfort Ride cab suspension. “I really appreciate the traction of the Komatsu 855.1, the good visibility, the low noise level, and the comfort of the cab, as well as the easily maneuvered crane,” says Mickael.
