Stand-operative forwarder with load capacity of 5,500 kg or 9,000 kg when combined with trailer. The low weight of the machine makes it particularly suitable for use in sensitive ground or moorland, especially with caterpillar tracks on the bogie.

Top quality hydro-mechanical drive train combined with a small turning radius and excellent tracking provide unique handling in difficult terrain. May be simply and easily transported by means of hook-lift platform.

2,8 liters CAT-engine that meets the demands according to Euro 5/Stage-V. Choose between the FC45 with 6.1 metre reach or the FC45DT with 8 metre reach, both from Cranab.

Trailer A special trailer for the Malwa 560F is available to increase load capacity up to 9 tonnes and to facilitate handling of different loads with increasing pressure on the ground. The trailer may be placed on the load bunks during transport.
