Highland Bear Forwarder – Panmure Estate
Photograph courtesy of Leslie Phillip, Perth who worked on Panmure Estate near Carnoustie for about 8 years. At that time the Estate had a team of about seven men working in the extensive woods and a further three in the saw mill.
This James Jones build Highland Bear forwarder MSR848P was driven from new for around seven years by Leslie and did much of the timber extraction on the Estate as well as running timber to the Estate sawmill. Here the machine is extracting line first thinnings in Sitka spruce and the PDF shows the same machine unloading pulp at roadside.
