L. V. Dohnt and Company is a progressive organisation and we are committed to trialling, improving and optimising our internal processes which in turn delivers a better product at a more cost effective price and increases efficiency enabling clients to reach ultimate product quality.
We are continually working with suppliers and manufacturers and are continually striving for increases in productivity and reliability. Our Company was instrumental in the design and trialling of the first reversible seats in skidders.
Our advanced knowledge in chipping and logging is demonstrated by various flail chain trials and has seen the development of a new square flail chain which is showing exceptional results in flailing ability and chain wear.
L. V. Dohnt and Company has been working consistently with flail and chipper manufacturers and has been the first contractors in the South East to implement a stand alone 4 flail debarker. Use in this machine is demonstrating a capability of higher productivity in both blue gum and whole tree pine debarking.
Our management of various interests also incorporates 25 hectares of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards, which is well managed and is contracted into premium quality wines each year.
Phillip Dohnt, the owner of LV Dohnt and Company, is also a 50% owner of Function Chains Pty Ltd. The partnership between the two companies has seen the development of a patent "Square Flail Chain" now sold in Canada and the USA. This partnership has also produced other new products such as a 15mm Flail Chain, single hole flail drums and Curtain Chain, giving LV Dohnt & Co the unique opportunity to solve customers' needs outside the normal forest industry.
L.V. Dohnt & Company are currently trialing the use of a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (commonly known as a "drone") for aerial reconnaissance.
