Tractor converted to Forwarder with Trailer

The photograph is courtesy of the family of George Dey. Check under ‘Groups’ and George Dey Collection.

George has not given any information on this machine other than to say it belongs to a private contactor working in Bennachie.

Can anyone identify the tractor make and who made the conversion?

Hello, The colour would indicate it`s a Highland Bear conversion but the cab construction and use of a Wartsilla crane indicates it`s a Chieftain Forge conversion. If you phone Chieftain Forge they will help. They`re very nice people and very helpful. Mike

This is indeed a Chieftain Forge machine with the Wartsilla crane, but it is on a County-converted International 634 tractor rather than the more usual Ford based machines - hence the overall finish in International red.

My god what a beast, I think this model had the legendary International six cylinder engine that ran like a Swiss watch with loads of power, plus four wheel drive and rear wheel chains for extra grip in the wood, I wonder if it ever ran the road to a sawmill. You can tell I am impressed.
