A pretty penny im sure.  

The brochures always show all the things the small machine can do, but im most interested in seeing what logs it CANT do.  Whats the max diameter that crane can end for end in 12ft oak?

I finally got pricing on them, the trailer unit is CAD$55-60K, the processor unit is another CAD$35K.

So for Cad 95 you'd have the forwarder and processor?  How large a cutting diameter on the processor?

Just looked it up, it’s an on board pull through table with a max diameter of under 10” all falling is done mechanically.
