  This job I am on has been good. The Red Oak has been doing well at the mill. They don't do a veneer grade but call it a prime for over $800mbf. I am ok with it cause they take it all, even the not so great pine and scale is spot on.
In two days from now, tomorrow will be yesterday.

Not cutting anything at the moment with the weather and load restrictions on the roads. But last friday we also had another forwarder setback. Came to the job to find the forwarder burned to the ground. No idea what happened but it got really hot, hot enough that every piece of aluminum (starter, alternator, hydraulic pumps, etc) on it melted and "leaked" out of the belly pans and formed stalagmites on the ground. Also melted the windows and paint off the side of the processor that was 15 feet away. Tires are still smoldering 4.5 days later haha.

Vandalism or just something went wrong Electrically? That looks not good. Hope it all works out.

That sucks, Chevy 🖓I try to park out of melting/burning range of other machines, just in case one lights up they don't all burn.

Whooo, that's rough.   Hope it never happens on our job.    Hopefully it was insured.

Doesn't appear to be vandalism, most likely electrical or something even though the master power switch was off. It also appears that the fire suppression system deployed but didn't help.

Barbender this was probably one of the 1 or 2 times in the last few years the machines were parked within range of one another. Just so happened that Thursday at quitting time I noticed two hoses leaking on the processor up under the crane which ment the front toolbox had to be lifted off with the forwarder, so we took the hoses home to make new ones so the processor wasn't movable. We just left the machines in their spots so that first thing Friday morning we could put the hoses back on and then swing the toolbox off the forwarder bunk back onto the processor and be good to go. 

It was insured... It'll just be a question of how long it takes for them to get the process rolling.

Holy buckets man, that's rough... I remember once I shut the master switch off on our old Ponsse caribou and it started smoking. Turns out the mount for the master switch was loose and shorting out on the frame. That sucker got warm. If I wouldn't have glanced back for no apparent reason, I think it would have looked like yours

That sucks wow.  :o I hope they get you squared away quick and you get back working. We had to send a bigger 100+hp NH farm tractor down the road 2wks ago, we managed to get it put out, insurance, about 6 trips to the dealer and it still wasn't right, we finally said enough and the new one has 3x the electronics and DEF.  >:(  I can only imagine the headaches with a newer forwarder like that half burning up and they want to fix it.

We figure between the vandalism and stuff that's walked off this last yr it cost us over 10k, i had 4 cameras, now we have 20+ and a security system. Things aren't good up by me, I assume it's the same your way, heroin everywhere. I took my cameras down 2wks ago to find out about a high dollar city person tree stand that walked off within sight of my header, I find out the last 6-8wks I've been getting ripped off and wouldn't have known it, cutting the backside of my firewood pile off. I've got wood in Bovina Center, South Kortright and a 300acre butcher job right on main street in Grand gorge, I'm 90% sure I got that job on the reservoir, debating converting a 20' container or buying a used toy hauler and 1 of us just stays on the job every night to prevent the drama.

No way is this machine fixable. Only way to fix it would be to split it at the articulation joint and replace the forward half. ha

I didn't figure that crispy critter was being fixed.  :D. I mean if you had caught the fire and let's say 1/2 the cab, most of the fancy expensive electronic stuff got melted but the insurance company says "we can get that fixed" and you get stuck with a lemon, problems show 1-2yrs later. We looked at an 860.1 last time home, a guy west of me brought it down from ME, pictures looked good, in person you could tell she had been passed around central NY like a sorority girl by a couple big loggers, I read so much on here about wiring issues with these 10-15-20yr old machines and I didn't bite, it seemed fair as far as butchered wiring but it looked to have 29-30k+ hard hrs, meter said 9K and he figured 19k.
 Any idea what the back half on one of those newer machines go for ???
