Farming Simulator 19 mods showcase: Ponsse Buffalo Clambunk forwarder, modded by North Modding Company and Outlaw. The download info is at the end of this presentation.
The modified Ponsse Buffalo strengthens North Modding Company’s position as the indisputable heroes of FS19 forestry modding. The mod makes hauling (skidding) long logs out of the woods much more manageable. And more efficient.
In real-world forestry, clambunk skidders are used to transport long timber logs. The main benefit is more wood per turn. And this is how it works in FS19 too. The Ponsse clambunk mod allows you to haul logs longer than what fits the original forwarder. I had no problem putting 16 12-meter logs into the clambunk.
And yes, you might see Ponsse clambunks in real-life forests too. They exist but are not as common as the traditional bunk versions.
North Modding Company’s modification of the Ponsse Buffalo is a demonstration of great modding. The clambunk works well, with added tension belts for extra load security.
You can keep or remove one pair of standard bunks. There are several Olofsfors tracks to choose from. And you can also change the colors for several of the body parts of the forwarder (the rims too.)

The clambunk did somewhat rotate when driving the buffalo, both with and without loads. You could try to counter the movements by steering slightly in the opposite direction. It might relax the drift to some extent.
It might take you a while to get used to the Clambunk mod. But, as with anything, practice makes perfect. Take your time. Be gentle when handling the logs. And turn down the vehicle arm sensitivity in the game’s menu if you’re struggling.
Another tip is to strap down the logs already in the Clambunk when adding more.
