AS FORS MW Team is going for a summer vacation!

The first half of a year has been great for us, we have had busy months and now it´s time for a brake, in order to come back with charged batteries and carry on the good work.

The production and assembly will be totally closed from 10th of July up to 30th of July.
Our Spare parts and After Sales team will be open all summer, but also with reduced capacity and we kindly ask for your consideration when reply times could be slightly longer.

Also the blog and news section is taking a break and will be back again in August.

15-19T to Finland

Our BIGAB 15-19T found its way to Finland, Kouvola where Pekka Pihkala became the new proud owner of it. Since it's the first 15-19T model that went to Finland, our Product Supervisor Sulev visited our dealer Agri-Kymi Oy, on whose yard he met the new owner and showed them how to get the maximum functionality out of the trailer and to get the work done smoothly.

in FIN:

Jani Manni AGRI-KYMI:ltä teki kaupat Pekka Pihkalan kanssa Bigab 15-19 T vaunusta. Pekka aikoo hyödyntää vaunun monipuolisuutta maatalouden ohella myös urakoinnissa ja lavanvuokrauksessa. Pekka päätyi T-malliin koska sen koukun teleskooppi mahdollistaa eri pituisten lavojen käytön. Koska kyseinen yksilö oli ensimmäinen Suomeen myyty 15-19T malli tuli tuotepäällikkömme Sulev Höbe Kouvolaan näyttämään vaunun toiminnot ja esittelemään vaunun. Vaunuun tutustumassa oli tuoreen omistajan ja jälleenmyyjän lisäksi myös FARMAn ja BIGABin suomen myyntipäällikkö Tero Hytönen. Kuvassa vasemmalta oikealle Sulev (tuotepäällkkö)  Pekka (tuore BIGABin omistaja) ja Jani ( vaunun myyjä).

FARMA in the Canadian news!

FARMA was represented at the Saw Tech Log Expo in Canada where our dealer Equipements Picken introduced the Northern America what FARMA has to offer.

A lot of people visited our stand, also did the local Ottawa TV news channel who was there to interview Brad Charby who works at Pickens Farm Equipment. Brad commented the outcome of the interview like this:"It was pretty cool because around the city of Ottawa, EVERYBODY watches that news channel. People were calling, family from that area were sending messages....it was crazy. 
People were coming to the booth to see which log Sarah dropped with the log loader. The whole thing was live-TV and I had no idea what she was going to do. It was fun!"



To see what Brad was meaning by dropping the log, look the interview from here: 


Next exhibition Woodmen’s Field Days will be held in United States in 18th to 20th of August in Boonville, New York. So be there and meet Brad yourself!

Expand your business areas by selecting different attachments to your FARMA crane throughout the year. Chain flail head is suitable for forestry roadsides and ditches, public and private park maintenance for keeping the roadsides clean and tidy. Our new chain flail head is designed for our medium-sized cranes and is most suitable with FARMA C6.3 and C6.7.

In true entrepreneurial spirit, we want to offer our skilled FARMA users an additional way to get the most out of our cranes.

Flail head is attached to the crane with an adapter and crane needs 2 extra hoses for flail head motor. Cutting width is 1 meter and the machine weights 200 kg.

For getting most of it load some logs on the trailer to have simple and handy counterweight.
