Ok folks, here it is.  I emailed the company on this nice rig.  Here's the damage;
Hello Mr Savage,


I am glad to here that our Alstor fits you needs.

Unfortunately we have no machine running in the United States .

But the price is from 352000:- SEK exclude freight. (approx. $58600 USD inclusive freight to the United States )


If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.


Your Sincerely


Lars Jansson VP

 The machine does fit my needs, but Ouch!!  That's borderline ridiculous!  You can buy an older full size forwarder for same price or less.   I'm sure that's probably not the machine they show with the full cab either.  I wish I was smart enought to figure out how to build a rig like that.  I can weld really well, but I don't know enough about hydraulics as far as sizing a motor and speeds and flow, etc.  Otherwise, I'd say it would be a lot cheaper to build one.  If anyone has any ideas, let me know!!
