I got lots of pictures.

I've got to resize them before I post them.

I was looking at forwarding trailers. Asked about the Farmi's (they didn't have any for display) their top of the line profdrive trailer is pushing $100k! Then add your forestry package tractor! He said they don't sell many of those  :D

It was a great day and a fun Expo.  While taking about the wide LT15, I then see my wife walking towards me with two metal bases for a bench.  She had been talking with Kevin from logrite.  She got the last two white bases.  She was for black but they sold out.  Looks like I will be cutting some slabs for benches.

I liked that forwarder a lot, but was afraid to ask the price. Glad I did not. Hey if you gotta ask the price you cant afford it...

Great time at the show! We really lucked out with the weather. I got to see Kevin again, and I finally met Jim Rogers. Those Logrite legs are awesome. I had held the belief that they would take away from the beauty of the slabs but they really complement them. Lots of French Canadians at the show this year, I got to practice my broken French!

I really think there is a missed market for smaller equipment. Massachusetts has a ton of woodlots, mostly privately held and not large in size. A small skidder, forwarder, etc. that could harvest or thin these small lots without needing a big skid road and being able to trailer behind a 1-ton truck would be pretty nice for a logger and landowner both. Those Vimek machines are made in Europe where they have already embraced the need for smaller machines. A guy in the U.S. either has to pay an arm and a leg for the European stuff or rebuild an old tree-farmer to get something in that size range here. Did anyone check out Mr. Collin's Workall? This is a perfect small machine. I feel bad for the guy; he's never sold one. His price is way too high, but if someone could get behind him, refine the design a bit to pretty it up, etc. I think that machine is winner!

The Workall was at the Bangor show too. I think it's been there for years.
