Welcome to CMN Robbie!
Is the complete machine called Highland Bear or only the crane?

Hi, thanks for your prompt reply. It was a James Jones Ford County conversion with a highland bear crane. It also had a front full width logging blade and double drum igland winches on the rear. It was the first forwarder I ever drove and I would dearly love a photo of it.
