The 848L Grapple Skidder is changing the game with new grapple design that features box-style tongs for maximum strength and harder wear surfaces for long life. Add to that the more robust heavy-duty axles and the standard new Outboard-Extreme axles and you have a machine that sets a new standard for reliability.
Features a powerful EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV 9.0L PowerTech™ PSS diesel 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.
L-Series Skidders deliver more horsepower, stability, and grapple options — for the serious performance you need to stay on top of your game.
The cab is 25-percent roomier and 50-percent quieter.
