B2 Or B3

Recommended Posts

:) You bet....Barriere, B.C to be exact. It was a brand new b2 I picked up in Fort Erie in 98. The company that purchased it did not obtain the contract they were trying for and the machine became available. I was logging on a Lama at that time and decided to try the B2 as we were short of a/c. I was impressed to say the least. It matched the Lama with a 1850 lb/turn average up to 5,000'. And was actually a little faster on the more horizontal fly's. I did about 750 hours in it, with absolutely no problems. The lodgepole pine and fir was fairly small in size so yes....intermediates do log. Actually a 407 did try a program down the road from us, but it was rather unsuccessful, more do to the fact that it was lack of logging experience, rather than the equipment....Cheers, H56 :)
