Barko Hydraulics has added Heavy Machines as the new Barko forestry equipment dealer for Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Heavy Machines has two branch locations in Maine, in Portland and Skowhegan, to serve customers in the northeastern United States. Heavy Machines will provide sales and product support for Barko’s merchandising loader, stationary electric loader, utility loader, grapple, tracked harvester, feller buncher and processor products.

Heavy Machines began as a specialty line dealer and has been serving the forest products industry since 1972. It now has nine branches in five states serving the construction, mining, scrap, waste and forest products industries.

“We have supported the industry’s top equipment brands since our founding, and we’re looking forward to working with Barko,” said Steve Northcross, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Heavy Machines. “Today, our northeast operations have the people skills and support mechanisms to support Barko product lines for all current and future customers. We are proud to be a key part of Barko’s new legacy in this business.”
