1999 Fabtek 133 Harvester
« on: May 25, 2017, 11:21:34 am »
I'm putting my 133 Fabtek with four roller head on the market.  Wife says I'm done with it.  It's currently down with a hydraulic issue.  The pump is out and at a shop being rebuilt.  New drive coupler components will also be installed upon reassembly.  It has a 6068D naturally aspirated JD engine.  Runs good with a little smoke on start up.  Doesn't burn oil.  New injector pump and injectors not too many hours ago.  Valve bank is wet.  There are other leaks.  There's new hoses, old hoses etc.  Hoses are an on going event with one of these.  Head works good.  In average hardwood it'll put 5 cords an hour on the ground easy.  I've done more and less depending on conditions.  Undercarriage has lots of life left in it.  It has the Joral measuring computer.  The Iqan just does engine functions.  The readout for it has a bad button but with patience you can navigate to the needed screen.  AC doesn't work.  Heat does.  Extra bars and chains go with it as well as a service manual.  I'll add pics when it's back together and out of the woods.  Hopefully that's the end of next week.  I see similar units priced from $50,000.00 all the way to $130,000.00.  I'm thinking some where in the middle of those as a selling price.  Around $85,000 ??? :)

The last two pics were taken in March of this year.  The first two are older.  I've had the machine since April of 2013.  This was taken just after it was delivered.
