ran across this today:

http://www.tradeearthmovers.com.au/detail/forestry-machines/forestry-equipment/iwafuji/mini-log-skidder-t20/35297

not a gaffner but... same sort of size. Iwafuji... never heard of them. :D
The quickest way to make a million dollars with a sawmill is to start with two million.

Not making much progress on the transmission. Not a lot of stuff out there, although one outfit has a complete reman unit but the price s not so good. the retrofit option may have to come into play. I pulled the injectors the other night and am having them checked. I have a suspicion that the engine has a blown head gasket. If the injectors check out OK I'll try and find a compression adapter or do a cylinder leak test to pinpoint a head gasket leak. Deer hunting starts Sat. so won't get much done for the next 9 days..........unless I luck out early!!

I want an Iwafuji!! (haven't heard of em either!) Look at the winches.......stupid simple! Wouldn't pull alotta big wood but could probably surprise you. And I would imagine by looking at it that it would be a snap to find parts for and easy to work on.
I only work old iron because I secretly have a love affair with my service truck!
