THE Scot JCB team told Forestry Journal the company was looking to expand its reach in the forestry sector with its presence at the event.

On its stand was the pre-production model 457 wheel loader, which is set to hit the market this month and features a new, more powerful Stage V Cummins engine, two new power modes to increase or reduce power and a new fuel-saving auto engine-shutdown feature.

Forestry Expo was also the first outing for the new 15-tonne 150X HD tracked excavator.
