Large Mobile chipper and bin trial

Photograph courtesy of Moray and Aberdeenshire Forest District with particular help from Lesley Hutcheson, Newton.

Nothing is known about this trial which featured a Kockums 84-31 converted to drive a large log chipper mounted on its rear along with a self emptying storage bin. The machine combination has been given a modified vehicle registration Q267NST and was assembled by BRUKS of Sweden.

See the PDF for more views of the machine and driver.
Does anyone know the story behind this demonstration and name of the driver?

Was this not a trial in conjunction with one of the distillers to use forest residues as fuel?
