    Ball park figure, probably above NZ$2 million dry at present exchange rates.
    Though when looking at new builds and used units to rebuild, a potential purchaser might consider at least a few options.

    T-Mar have an LC680 with longer ropes, about to go out the shop door.

    Wheeler Equipment did a new tower build for a gravel extraction unit, last year.

    NZ - Brightwater (BE 70) and DC Equipment (capacity for a new tower build)

    Many thanks Plebeian, what is your definition of dry after the Ball park figure . In NZ it would mean no diesel or oil. Kind regards Simon says

    Madill is done. Nicholson is no longer building in Madill equipment. The Tmar LC680 is a swing yarder and that one is destined for Dahlgren logging in Forks. It is 2.4 million dollars. The Falcon 70 built by DC equipment in New Zealand is an excellent choice and that is the way we are headed.

    Used 172's are $700-1.1M USD.
