Simplified routing of the electrical and hydraulic systems improves reliability and eases service. Wiring and hoses are placed for protection against wear and damaging bends.
The cab is roomy and quiet. Other fatigue-beating creature comforts include an efficient HVAC system, improved ergonomic controls, and plenty of storage space.
The easy-to-use CVT transmission automatically senses the load and delivers more torque and tractive effort as needed to maintain the desired speed.

New steering sensors control articulation speed when nearing frame-to-frame contact, cushioning impact during full articulation and improving operator comfort.
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.
Large grapples give you more flexibility to configure a skidder to best match your application. The arch design provides a good view to bunches for more efficient loading.
This map-based production-planning and -tracking system allows contractors and operators alike to share real time production and location information – taking the guesswork out of effective decision-making.
