Volvo ECR88 Harvester with Patu 400SH
For sale is our 2009 Volvo ECR88 (7055 hrs) with a Patu 400SH Stroke Head. We bought the machine from Volvo (Stirling) in early 2015 with one previous owner. We changed it from rubber to brand new steel 450mm tracks. The machine was full guarded by Caledonian Forestry Services and they fitted a fully refurbished Patu 400sh Stroke head in Spring 2015.(Same as a Kesla 20SH). The head has a max cut of 45cm. We got Sure grip control levers fitted. The machine is fully fitted with LED lights, a marguard windscreen, full length track guards on the inside and out and a heavy duty belly plate. The machine was originally setup with the head attached via the quick-hitch but in 2016 we had it converted by Caledonian Forestry Services to a fix nose cone. We still have the ram and quick hitch and it wouldn't be a big job to re fit it. There is also two buckets. It has only been owner-operated. I am the only person that has operated the harvester since it was built and therefore I have really looked after it as it is my pride and joy! We mostly carry out first thinning on more sensitive sites and this machine has been ideal for this as it can fit up tight racks, leaving very little impact on the ground but still has a long reach and power to carry out a good thinning. We transported the machine around using a low loader trailer and 100hp tractor which was ideal for small jobs, keeping costs down. The machine is available for viewing in Perthshire. POA.
