FARMA`s T12 lumber trailer in the Generation 2 series closes the gap between a smaller trailers and a forwrder, especially when equipped with optional 4WD. The octagonal, bent, centre profile gives the trailer a new functionnal design. The frame is more impact-resistant and it`s shape, with angled surfaces, makes the trailer better able to deflect high stumps and rocks in the forest. We also get more steel on the sides of the beam where it adds strength and rigidity.
The T12 has a hydraulic rear extension allowing for longer logs, or 2 log lengths to be loaded end to end. It can be retracted to fit through tighter areas. Four adjustable banks including the adjustable bogie allow you to tailor your trailer to the logs you`re carrying. Double cylinders provide uniform torque on the drawbar and allow for incredibly precise steering of the trailer.
The optional hydraulic 4WD adjusts automatically to the speed of the tractor; even automatically disengaging at higher speeds when it senses it is no longer needed. The drive is extremely useful in difficult driving conditions on soft ground, deep snow and in hilly areas.
The trailer can be equipped with either the 7.0 G2 (23') crane with a single hydraulic extension or the 8.5 G2 (28') crane with dual hydraulic extensions for added reach. The crane are among the strongest in their class boasting impressive lift capacities but also easy maintenance and long service life. They come standard with shock absorbing cylinders to protect the boom from sudden movements under heavy loads.
