Spanish term or phrase: las maquinas equipadas con la cubierta Fate Forest
Does anyone have any idea what "cubierta Fate Forestal" is? The text is about a trip into the Misiones jungle in Argentina. Another sentence in which it appears is, "Es en este medio ambiente donde trabaja la cubierta Forestal, sobre tierra, barro, piedras, troncos y restos de maleza." In the next sentence, "la cubierta" is referred to as a "product" as in, "Condiciones verdaderamente duras y agresivas, que solo un excelente producto puede resistir con exito." Thank you!

machines equipped with a Fate Forestal cover

It could be cover or covering, the context indicates a type of covering for a machine, i guess to protect it from the jungle environment

I am guessing

that Fate Forestal is a trademark and that cubierta is sometype of cover or protection. I would translate Fate Forestal protection or protector (as in bug repellant, or cover if it is some type of cloth or nylon.

Good luck!

"Fate Forest" (Fate Forest JACKET)

Cubierta may be a blanket, OR a jacket.

In this environment, where one works with the Forest Jacket, on land,mud, stones, tree-trunks and weeds. . .

Truly grueling and hostile conditions which only an excellent product might stand up to successfully

Fate Forestal tire (I am sure)

Fate is a brand of tires in Argentina such as Goodyear. I just checked with someone at Fate and he told me that the model Forestal is a special tire for tractors used for work in forests. That's why it was also referred to as a product. Write to me at if you need further help on this translation, I live in Argentina.
