John Deere 948L-II Log Skidder

In the forest, Uptime is the name of the game. And the 948L Grapple Skidder is not interested in playing nice. Its beefier roller-bearing articulation joint provided longer life.

The standard Outboard-Extreme axles are the biggest, most rugged axle in the woods. Add in a durable drivetrain, tougher grapples, and a simplified electrical system, and you have a machine that is all business.
