roof mounted crane

I have seen 1 on a Ford, ideally you want 1 on a tractor that can turn the seat round to face backwards and have enough room for controls and your legs

Seen one on a 390 and on an old ford. Oh and a Fast track although that was more behind the cab than on the roof. Oh the John Deere forest tractors have them too.

 

Stephen hit the nail on the head with what you want. A swivil chair (although these can be fitted after) and enough room for your legs and controls. They're often on valmets as they have a flat floor unlike the MF. This aids turn the chair and cab room.

I agree with the above as far as having a swivel seat. It can be done to any tractor should you want to. I would always want 4x4 as a pre requisite for any roof mount tractor. Seen fords, county's, internationals db's and the list goes on. Cant go far wrong with a valtra or a county.

 

Cheers,

There was an article in Forestry Journal 2 or 3 years ago profiling a contractor and they had a Botex mounted on a John Deere.

 

Jas P Wilson would be the people to ask.

Yes a valmet would be easiest but they just seem to be so expensive and hard to find with good power and mod cons like 50k and suspension

It would only be used for biomass not in the woods and a bit of firewooding
