... recycling, demolition and agriculture are dispersed over four countries. Since the take-over of AM Trailer, OP Höglunds can now offer complete trailers. Also belonging to the group are systems for the addition of loading cranes.

The upper structure of the Scania S 650 is mainly made up from a centrally-located auxiliary frame and four finely engraved and solidly screwed-down cradles with stakes. At the rear, the chassis has been lengthened to allow for the addition of a crane which is easy because of the extensively screwed-on side metal sheeting, like the original. Because of the lengthening, new rear lights were necessary which give the nice and correct complete look.

The solid front bulkhead protects the Scania cabin from being hit and shows the correct rows of rivets. At the front of the wall there is even a glued-on broom. Checkered plates to protect the fuel and pressurized air tanks, which on the original are not of this kind, complete the upper structure.

For the loading crane, Tekno was able to fall back to the finely detailed and functional Hiab Loglift 96 S from their standard production program. This is a good match because Kvarforths Transport also banks on Hiab.

The S-Cabin, first introduced in issue 1-2017, has been adapted with many additional details to match the original. The most striking detail is the chromed elk catcher which is only plugged in so that the cabin cab can still be tilted. The extensive paint job is an excellent match and has been cleanly applied. Instead of the Scania logo, there is a depiction of a Middle Ages bridge in the Swedish town of Falkenberg, the home of the transport company. The color scheme has even been partially continued in the interior.

‘Södra’ is a company that is made up from 52,000 forest owners who act together as one lumber-marketing company.

The log train seen from the rear makes a great impact!


The log cradle upper chassis of the Swedish producer Höglunds has been exactly replicated.


The best way to see the true-tothe- original upper chassis, is when the vehicles are empty.


The trailer is a completely new construction; the chassis allows for four and five-axle versions, which on the Höglunds original is also possible. Here the cradles with stakes are directly mounted on the longitudinal beams; the length adjustment possibilities are only hinted at. The rear has been extensively modeled and the uniform rows with see-through indicator, brake and end lights are correct. The ‘Swedish Combination’ reaches a length of 25.25 m.

In order for the model to show of its power it should absolutely be shown fully loaded. For this, five sets of the 3 m logs from Tekno necessary, or, one could go on an extended walk in the forest to collect branches of the necessary size and then saw them to the correct length.
