Features

Engine

The easy-to-use CVT transmission combines the smoothness and operating ease of a hydrostatic transmission with the fuel efficiency of a lockup torque converter.

Grapples

New larger grapples give you more flexibility to configure a skidder to best match your application. The new arch design provides a better view to bunches for more efficient loading.

Cab Comfort

The cab is 25-percent roomier and 50-percent quieter. Other fatigue-beating creature comforts include a more efficient HVAC system, improved ergonomic controls, and plenty of storage space.

Quick and Easy Serviceability

Filters and critical components are conveniently located for fast service. Large panels are easily removed for wide-open access to the engine compartment, and the cab tilts to provide a quick route to other components.
