I've never seen a Valtra, but I have seen a Valmet or two in the logging country. I went out to the back of Lithgow to fix a valmet 902 and it was alright. I had to bush mechanic a bit of pipe but I fixed it.
I'll just say I'm from Australia :hi:

use to see lots of Valmet, then Valtra Valmet and finally Valtra near me in mid Shropshire, as there was a dealer 4 miles away that sold them along with Fendt, Zetor, Claas combines, etc that was an independent.

they are now primarily a Claas dealer, but you still see quite a lot of Valtra around from the days when it was one of the primary tractors they sold, the forestry business I use to sub-contract to, if I wasn't driving their Unimog or my own Unimog I would be driving their reverse drive Valtra 6150 with a mulcher or stump grinder.
