The FARMA LF8 is a compact 8-wheel forwarder with good manoeuvrability in rough terrain and dense forests. The forwarder has a load index of 1:1 with a load capacity of 8.5 tons. With the LF8, you get an efficient thinning forwarder with high performance. The forwarder has an adaptable timber bed where you as a customer can choose between a standard timber bed (3.7 m) or a long one (4.3 m). FARMA LF8 has a width of only 2.2 meters equipped with 600 tires.
A low center of gravity and very good weight distribution contribute to the FARMA LF8 being stable and safe during crane work and when driving in difficult terrain, despite a high ground clearance. Through a unique transmission, where we optimize the speed of each wheel in the forest, damage to the ground and the environment is minimized. Always with 100% optimal power distribution.
The construction of the FARMA LF8 contributes to durability and is an easy and cost-effective machine to service which is made possible by few bearings, joints, and unique service parts. The LF8 is a powerful machine that gets the job done. The diesel engine from Caterpillar is a modern and reliable engine that fulfils all present emissions standards.
The machine has robust transmission, composed of proven components, for a unique solution where the speed of each wheel is regulated individually. The result, a machine that leaves a minimum of ground damage behind. Stepless speed control between 0–27km/h*
The choice of cranes comes from our own FARMA range. For the LF8, we offer cranes from 6.7 up to 8.5 meters.
