Timberpro 830 combo
« on: July 06, 2017, 06:01:21 pm »
We have just bought a 830 combo with a Logmax 9000. It is old with 11300 hours (head 6000 hours). What is good/bad about this Timberpro?
It is the only one in my country (Norway) and no loggers have been working on a Timberpro before.

There are a few changes between the TF830 and TF830B. 11 300 hours is not old if the machine has been looked after.
How will the Timberpro be used? In some some flatter terrain places with the right size trees; the TF830B can be used to fell/ process trees with the felling/ processing head. The head is then removed/ replaced for a grapple (for loading) in less than ten minutes and the fowarder can shift the logs to a truck loading area. (a one person/ one machine logging system)

Norway has some flat spots but they are a bit wet (north sea, artic ocean, atlantic ocean)  other than that...not very flat :).

It is wery hilly i our part of Norway. So the Timberpro will work in combinaton with some small skidders (440,540,TJ 240,Kockums 822). Plan is using the cable and bring trees up/down to trail.
