Farma loader on forwarder
« on: December 23, 2016, 03:09:00 PM »
 Hey guys, I wanted to share a little project we just completed.
We installed a Farma 8.5 crane on an Entracon forwarder. At full reach, it hits the 30' mark and lifts 1150lbs fully extended.

I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I do!

Cool.  I take it all 8 wheels are driven?  The end boom section has two extensions?  Impressive lift at full extension.  What is the load capacity (weight and length) and what is the lift capacity close in?  Are those tank treads sitting on the bunks?

Yes all 8 wheels drive. Yes 2 extensions. They work simultaneously. The trailer is rated for 6 tons. It's 12' long. Next to the trailer it will lift over 4500 lbs.
It will have the lags installed once it gets to its forever-home.
