Stuart Munro recently bought a Balmec Z27 S measuring wheel from Forestry Parts Direct and has been impressed with the wheel so far.

I was having problems with inaccurate length measuring which got especially worse during the summer months when sap levels were high, the spruce bark would slip on the log causing inconsistencies in lengths. I approached Peter at Forestry Parts Direct and he very quickly pointed me in the direction of the Z27 S wheel for my 414ts. The results were noticeable instantly and after 2 weeks use it has made a huge difference to length accuracy and productivity. I’d highly recommend Balmec parts especially when they come with advice from someone who obviously has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the harvesting industry.”

Stacked timber
The timber was stacked at roadside by the forwarder from the forest side. The flush stack gives you an inclination of the accuracy of the Balmec measuring wheel.

Neil Mckune called into our warehouse to collect a left and right inner feed roller and a top knife for a John Deere 480C.

“The Forestry Parts Direct (FPD) website is easy to use and it was quick and simple to order the parts I needed. The parts are very well engineered, a good bit heavier than the original parts. The knife blade is thicker and the feed wheel spikes are larger and more aggressive. The wheels are a lot thicker than original and everything fits perfectly. No complaints at all and I would certainly recommend FPD to others.”
