Alstor Product Range

The Alstor mini forwarder, is an eight wheel drive machine, designed and built in Sweden to reach difficult & sensitive areas of forestry. There are many load concepts, making the Alstor a very versatile machine for many applications. The constant 8 wheel drive makes the Alstor excellent in challenging and steep terrain and with a low ground pressure and tracks available, it is very well suited to wet sites. Transportation is easy as it can be towed on a trailer behind a suitable 4x4.

Home Forestry llp was the first company in the UK to buy an Alstor 8x8 miniforwarder back in 1998. We carried out the Forestry commission TDB trials and many open workshops. In 1999 we were given the UK and Ireland dealership for Alstor and ever since that time we have worked closely with Alstor to help develop and promote the design and options available. We actively contract and use the Alstor and have a wide knowledge of the design and operational use. We beleive strongly in the Alstor and its concept and the manufacturers In Sweden. The capabilities, outputs and low impact make these small machines perfect for the UK forest. From light thinnings to clear-fell.
