Valmet 838 Forwarder for Sale For sale is our Valet 838 Forwarder. Its a 1992 machine, 8wd with a Perkins 4 cylinder engine. It has a Crab 650XL crane. It comes with a spare wheel. It is an old machine with a lots of hours(28018), but still does what it was made to do. The tyres have about 20% left. Ideal as a yard machine, much better than a tractor and trailer in tight spaces. We've had it for the past 5 years and are now looking for something bigger. There is the usual wear & tear as you should expect, pipes, play in pins, that sort of thing. A nice simple machine to use and I will be sad to see it go.
Viewing is advised as it is not a new machine. Email, text or call with any questions.
VAT will be added to the final sale price. Lodsworth, West Sussex

Supported by the Leonardo Lifelong Learning Programme Woodnet participants visited several European countries to discover the differences, and many similarities in timber construction and wood decoration.

The background to this research is available at  and this web portal also provides a link to a 3D models exploring many of the structures, ranging from a barn in Kent to a Latvian windmill, a Romanian church and a French farmhouse.
