SU­MIT­OMO FOR BAIRD

New Zealand Logger - - New Iron -

South­land Log­ger, Bobby Baird, has taken de­liv­ery of a sec­ond high and wide Su­mit­omo 240. The new 240TL log­ger sports the huge 8.5” pitch un­der­car­riage and drive mo­tors etc from the larger SH330, along with the 240 up­per, with an ex­ca­va­tor-style boom and arm, as Bobby chose to keep the bucket, cylin­der and link­age op­tion. Guarded by Bul­lied Engi­neer­ing and plumbed by Hy­draulic So­lu­tions, it has an En­sign 1730 cen­tre hose-through grap­ple. This ma­chine joins a Su­mit­omo SH240-TLFS fac­tory guarded unit with felling boom and arm all set up for shov­el­ling and de-limb­ing. Baird Log­ging works with the large South­land forestry com­pany, Log Mar­ket­ing Ltd, op­er­at­ing in forests and wood­lots through­out South­land and Otago. Dean Cousins from AB’s In­ver­cargill branch made the sale. Bobby (far left) and his crew with the newly de­liv­ered ma­chine.
