Falcon F40 Forwarder
GM Forestry are happy to announce the arrival of their latest and most innovative piece of machinery. This is available to hire with our experienced operator. The F40 is the first mini-forwarder in the Falcon range. Designed and manufactured in Co. Meath, Ireland and launched in August 2014, it is an all round leader in its class. It is mainly designed for smaller plantations, broadleaf plantations or those classed as 'sensitive' sites. The F40 is an efficient workhorse with a loading capacity of 4 tonnes and a crane reach of 5.3 metres. Equipped with eight 500 mm wide floatation tyres and a ground clearance of 550mm it has been designed for minimal ground impact. Fitted with a proven 48hp (36.4kw) Kohler engine it has plenty of torque and power allowing it to work comfortably on difficult terrains. The transport costs of heavy equipment often prohibits owners or contractors from carrying out thinning on smaller plantations. The F40 can be transported by a low loading trailer allowing plantations to be not only environmentally managed but economically too. It's arrival has been described as 'timely', finally a machine designed to overcome challenges of woodland management in an environmentally, economical and sensitive manner.
