German term or phrase: Kranvollernter
term found in a technical text concerning equipment used in the forest industry. As I understand it, it is a comprehensive "harvester" - -ernter - of trees, with a crane. Is there a nice English term for this? Help!

English translation:(crane) harvester
Explanation:
The cranes go into harvesters. To distinguish from harvesters which don't have a crane, you could say, a "crane harvester"
The following is from the 1st URL below.

Timberjack began full-scale production of its own forest machine cranes at the beginning of 1999. The crane is a key component of forwarders and harvesters"
