Anyone ever done business with them? Seem like nice people on the phone. I'm interested in a forwarder they have for sale. Any of you guys live near there?

I bought my Timbco from Don @ Lakeshore, both he and Stephanie have been great to deal with, I've called him a few times on other machines or questions in general and been great, I don't think he is a re-paint and out the door kind of guy, I would buy from him again.

I bought a log truck from them years ago (15) and they fixed the few problems it had before bringing it down to me, I would also buy from them again.

Live about half hour from there. He is an equipment jockey. Better than some others but I know some of the equipment he has and why it was traded in and know he hasn't fixed all the issues. Like buying anything used be sure to look it over well and go in with eyes wide open.

I ski in Wakefield at Indianhead almost every weekend. If you want any pictures or anything, let us know which machine you're looking at.

Thanks for the info, they have a '99 Fabtek 548C forwarder that I'm interested in.  I'm talking with them about it and it looks to be in really good shape but I'm goin on pics that they've sent me. If we work out a deal on it maybe I could get one of you local guys to go run it around the yard and check a few things out for me

If need be I wouldn't mind going on a Saturday sometime and taking a look at it and running it around.
