Loewen High Rotation Wrist on Timbco Barsaw
Loewen 350 Degree rotate wrist gives 310 degrees more rotation than the
stock Timbco wrist. This operator could not pick up the blowdown trees
like this with the stock set up. It is the difference between working and
being out of work in this case. Loewen wrists are available for all models
of fellerbunchers. A construction model is available for excavators.

Abandoned 550 Timberjack Log Skidder
This machine was so bushed in, that we had never been close to it before.
This time we came with a Stihl chainsaw and other tools of destruction to
clear away the decades of growth. Our guess is that it's been parked in the
forest for 20 to 30 years.
It looks to be in great shape....there may have been some transmission
issues judging by the add-on trans pressure gauge...but other than the
corrosion from a leaky battery box...it looks like a runner.
