Description: 
  Forestry Forwarder Kockums 83-35.    For sale is our forestry forwarder, bought and used for a site clearance job, it’s now completed the job and surplus to requirement.    It’s a Swedish machine made in 1984, since then to our knowledge it has been used by a farmer/ contractor, we bought and got it ready for our clearance contract.    Since purchasing we’ve spent a fair bit getting it useable and reliable with new parts less than a year old.  The hydraulic crane has been overhauled with new lines top to bottom, brand new rams and pins, fully greased and 100%. New main hydraulic valve block costing around 4500 with mostly new hydraulic lines, Installed by Richard court forestry engineering. The bogies and diffs have been serviced with new gear oils and inspected also by Richard court forestry engineering.  The engine is a Ford D commercial and has a full service and runs as it should with no oil/water burn and no smoke from exhaust, always starts first time.  Flotation tyres all hold air, one could do with replacing but is still useable.  Structural upgrades and strengthening has been done to the mid section as this is the weakest part of the machine.  Cab working lights are now modern bright LEDs New premium batteries x4 with leads and isolation key.  Bunk has had new covers fabricated.  Auxiliary compressed air line installed, pump tyres etc. Multiple small gauge airlines replaced.  Modern pneumatic steering toggle upgrade. Coat of hammerite blue on the cab area and black on the log bunk.  The rotator is a kinshofer with brand new internals. The log grab is in great working order with a new ram.
