Somethings need to be clarified, the gas powered unit does not exsist anymore, we phased it out because of overheating and lack of power, the new unit has a 36 hp Perkins deisel engine and can skid up 3 times it's own weight 4100 lbs X 3 = 12300 lbs , as for parts we have all parts in stock and ready to ship to anywhere in North America within 24 hours.  I have included a link for our new video   and tech specs for your review, we will also in the very near future offer this unit with a standard skidsteer plate front and rear so all the attachments you see at this link  will fit onto the machine, also the name of the machine has been changed to OXTRAC.
This thing looks good on flat ground . I would like to see it in action in rocky terrain , muddy terrain , etc . I had never given these small machines much chance before owning a skidsteer , the one I have is mighty powerful being a Bobcat T 320 . I have grappled a 16 foot oak lod that was 48 to 50 + inches in diameter and carried it away with little to no problem . I know it is considerably larger and more horse power than your forcat .  I am also amazed with the my 16" feller buncher schear head , which I use on it for clearing firewood trees etc . I always thought bigger was better ,but these compact machines pack a lot of punch for a machine of their size . I wish I had a hot saw head for sawlogs , but for now we cut saw log timber with chainsaws and wedges like most everyone else I supose .

This unit is a forwarder but its forcat size. There's a neat video of it on youtube. Made in Japan by Canycom.
