The Franklin/Treefarmer line of forwarders consists of four and six wheel drive rubber tired frame articulated vehicles, available with front axles or center section oscillation in most models. These units are designed to forward timber from the felling site to the loading area, by means of loading/unloading the timber on the tail bunk with a roof mounted or post mounted hydraulic loader. The current product line offers several powershift and hydrostatic models, varying in size, tail section length and horsepower, to meet the varying demands of today's loggers.
