Forestry Remotes

RCT is the proven leader in reliable, lightweight radio remote controls used in forestry work to significantly improve productivity and safety in an industry that experiences a high rate of injuries and fatalities.

Hand held remotes

Minimalistic yet sturdy, lightweight and easy-to-use across all forestry applications to perform simple tasks, in a safe and productive manner.

RCT's CM1000 series remotes increase the safety and productivity of mobile and fixed plant machinery.

Available in 6 and 12 functions as well as 6 functions with 2 proportional paddles, the CM1000 range can tackle numerous tasks. Outputs can be increased if additional control is required.

Pendant remotes

Ideal for bigger applications, the lightweight and easy-to-use pendant remotes are built to withstand the harshest conditions.

ControlMaster® radio remote control devices are ideal for the more complex mobile machinery and applications.

Compatible with ANY make and model of mobile equipment, these devices allow for continuous operation resulting in increased productivity while ensuring operator safety.

Why remote control?

Forestry work is considered high-risk despite the sector’s efforts to help reduce incidents that take place during harvesting and haulage, the rate is still unacceptably high.

Retrofitting existing machines with RCT’s advanced remote control systems can help contractors secure the competitive edge in the industry.

It allows operators to control forestry equipment from a safe distance, increasing confidence and in turn productivity, increasing equipment billable hours.

Uses the same proven operating system as the ControlMaster® ATX’s and packages it into our smallest and lightest remote control option – weighing in at less than 2kg! The MTX is ideal for short-term Line-of-Sight applications, and is suitable for all mobile machines in industrial applications, and is suitable for all industrial applications globally for mobile machines.


Removes the operator from the hazardous area and relocates them to a secure and protected location where they can control the machine via remote with the help of multiple cameras and sensors.
RCT understands that every site is different; therefore we have multiple options for relocating operators to a safe location to ensure we can meet site’s specific needs.
