Seems like a fitting time to throw out two pertinent sidenotes.  The city of hamburg germany just passed a ban on older diesel cars, and the international maritime organization is forcing all container ships to upgrade engines to some new emission standard in the coming year or two.  
Yeah things they are a changing in the EU, especially the incredibly hypocritical Germans ( oh we are green oh we are green...but we pollute like it's 1939).

I got to see the new tiger cat 602.
What a machine. !!
It was massive. 
I asked the salesman the price and he said 225k.
Not sure how I could afford the payment but it was really nice looking.

This is the best global emissions chart i could find, but the picture it paints to me is that we americans are the ones really getting squeezed by regulation.

At what point do you lose because regulations have made the engine economy so bad vs is its euro brother. Take say an eco diesel in the liberty at the time our version got roughly 30 the euro was double the mileage.

The point where the engine gets lowest BSFC (maximum work per unit of fuel) is in my mind where emissions should be frozen.  Reduced economy just means we run the engine for X amount more hours/gallons to complete the job,  Which isnt really in the spirit of "getting off foreign oil" or "reducing tailpipe emissions" as i interpret them.  Just my uneducated opinion

The pictures and videos I saw were a swinging grapple like we run out here, but they dont look as heavy built.

Plain cable 602 looks to do ok

the palfinger crane version looks very good with double drum winch.  What size skidder is that to compare with, i didn't find a weight spec. But with 30.5/32" tires i would guess 15to?

I'd rather have a forwarder too.  Speaking of which...no luck yet for me.
