Timber Haulier
A new truck showing state of the art timber handling kit in the shape of a truck mounted extending crane with log grabber attachment and self inflating/ deflating tyres on the tractor unit rear driving wheels for added traction on slippery forestry roads (that's the reinforced pipe hanging between the two rear wheels).

APF 2014
APF is a show dedicated to the Forestry Industry held every two years. This year it was held on the Ragley Hall Estate near Alcester and despite an hour and a half queue to do the last 3 miles it was an interesting show.
On display was just about every machine or piece of equipment from a hand saw to the very powerful and expensive log chippers that devour trees by the minute!
Lots of competitions to view including Pole Climbing, Forwarder operating, chain saw sculptures and making 4 legs for a Windsor Chair in a competitive way.
