Hi Guys, Kersti at ForsMW emailed me this morning letting me know that Farma is now a site sponsor  8) so I wanted to take a second to introduce myself, and maybe give a little intro for Farma in North America as well.

In recent years Farma has been doing alot of work to supply a loader and trailer combo to everyone from the occasional user to the professional. Not long ago the Generation 2 (G2) line was introduced which is a huge step forward as far as quality and design goes vs what we now refer to as G1. Everything from the grapples to the cranes and trailers were redesigned; and I think those of you who had a look at the site will see how far things have come in the past few years. Farma is the most sold trailer and loader in Europe and it`s pretty safe to say that europe is the most competitive market for this type of equipment right now, so I believe that says alot about the product.

As far as the North American market goes, there are currently 2 importers. Hantz Equipment who handles the Maritime provinces in Canada and oursleves, Picken's Farm Equipment, located in Waterloo, Quebec. We've been in business since 1983, and in recent years, have grown into one of the biggest independent importers of forestry equipment in the North East.

Some of our strongest brands are:
Hakki Pilke firewood processors
Wood-Mizer sawmills
of course, Farma log trailers

To answer a previous question:
Yes we'll be in Bangor in the spring. We were in VT this year and did extremely well so we're happy to say we're doubling the size of our site and going to present as much of the lineup as we can including the new 12 ton G2 trailer and a 4WD model, right through to the smaller 4.2-6 with extendible boom.

If there's anything I can do to help, please don't be shy to ask. Myself and everyone at ForsMW would be delighted to help and please visit our website as well as Farma's

Does Farma make any equipment suitable for use behind a Compact tractor (or perhaps even an ATV)?  If not, do they have plans to do so in the future?

I didn't see anything when looking through their web site. A narrow dump trailer rated for 3 to 5000# that is rugged enough to go in the woods, but could still be licensed for use on the road would be vary useful to me (something lie the old CAM Woodsman trailer). I've also been nosing around at compact tractor sized log trailers or forwarding trailers (but have not been able to justify one ... yet).

Hi John,
Considering what you mean by a compact tractor I would think that our T6 trailer with C38 or C42 cranes would be a good match for them. To give you an idea I include some pictures of, what I would call a compact tractor, with our C42 crane on it. This crane is then also available to be mounted on the T6 trailer which is our smallest one in the range.

Hi Dean,
I would suggest that you get in-touch with our dealers in North America as they do get trade in equipment when customers upgrade for bigger loaders or trailers. You also might give them call just to say that you are interested if something turns up.
However the price difference between a second hand and brand new unit isn't that big and usually our customers tend to stick to their gear for long.
We don't offer any second hand from the factory, it is all ran through the dealers.

Thanks, Peter. I had missed the T6 size (I must have been looking at the G2 trailers, where the smallest one is the T10).

I'm afraid the T6 may still be too big for me. I'm a small operation. My tractor weighs only 2400# (1100 kg) bare. By the time I add the loader, filled rear tires, belly pan and operator cage, and other accessories, I'm still only up to a little over 4600# (2100 kg). I'd never come close to using the capacity of a 6000 kg rated trailer, and keeping it under control on my hilly property would be difficult. The trailer would probably be owned jointly with a few friends who work cooperatively to pull out firewood and some saw logs, assist with charity operations and some small jobs.

If you ever made something like a T3, that's more the size range I'm looking for. I realize this size would probably be viewed as a "toy" by larger operators. However, that's the size range that fits what I am doing.

I will stop and check out your equipment the next time I'm at a show where you are exhibiting.Perhaps talking to others who are using the equipment at my scale may help. I make it to the Northeast Forest Products Expo when they are in Essex, Vermont, and occasionaly to the New York Woodsman's Field Days in Boonville, NY.

John, I realize the trailer isn't the size you are looking for but you're welcome to check out our Farma trailer, it's in Cabot VT. It's the T12 C7 trailer and we pull it with a 120hp farm tractor, so kinda the opposite but you'd be able to check out the Farma build quality and so on.

We bought that trailer from Pickens in Waterloo.

We modified the bunks on our C7 T12 Farma to carry a 1400 gallon sap tank. Very heavy duty, no issues there, handled it well.

We are now going to be modifying the bunks again (temporary modifications, the log bunks go back in, we add pieces of 2.5" steel pipe to fit in the bunk slots) To be able to load, transport, and spool out 5000' reels of 3/8" steel cable. Should make life alot easier.

Very versatile machines for sure!
