Some of the most popular models of skidders are the John Deere 648GIII, the Caterpillar 525C , and the Tigercat 630C. These skidders are some of the most widely used with some of the world's premier forestry companies, and each have certain specializations that differentiate them. The John Deere 648GIII is a skidder that has a dual arch grapple, as well as dual steer mode options. This skidder carries a fair amount of power with it, and a 127" winch allows it to grab logs and other forms of foliage for easy transportation. The Caterpillar 525C is a skidder that has a built-in 14.4' grapple and also has HD axles. The 525C is adept at pushing materials, in addition to its hauling capabilities. Lastly, the Tigercat 630C is a dual arch skidding machine that is equipped with a Cummins engine and 30.5-32 tires, making it durable and capable of remaining steadfast while pushing, moving, or pulling enormous amounts of weight. All of these models of skidders are amongst the most popular designs that each respective manufacturer has crafted, and can be easily relied on in virtually any type of general forestry work to get the job done correctly.

One of the biggest types of skidders in terms of size is the Caterpillar 545C. The Caterpillar 545C is equipped with a 19’ grapple, and has 35.5 Firestone tires, giving it unparalleled power and an enormous potential for moving massive lumber. This machine is best for large forestry endeavors. The way that it is able to pull out logs that have a large circumference gives the Caterpillar 545C an advantage over some of its smaller counterparts in the skidder lineup. Another powerful type of skidder is the John Deere 748H. A dual arch skidder that has a 130” grapple and SWEDA axles, this impressive piece of machinery refuses to compromise on performance. The 748H ’s enclosed cabin also prioritizes operator comfort, in addition to offering the operator supreme amounts of power. Lastly, a fast skidder model is the John Deere 648H. This machine is both versatile and agile in terms of its operating station and steering. Each of these different models of skidder could be a great addition to your forestry equipment collection, and their ability to move cut trees of significant size in preparation for a construction project or for lumber harvesting is valuable to the industry. However, as will be discussed in the following paragraph, its important to have a solid understanding of both what different types of skidders exist, as well as any respective proficiencies that certain models may have before committing to a purchase.

Skidders used for forestry are mainly divided up into two categories: grappling skidders and cable skidders. A grappling skidder is a type of forestry machine that has the ability to pick up multiple logs in a single sitting. Cable skidders are more limited, but they still can offer unbridled amounts of efficiency for moving logs. Skidders vary in terms of specialization, and which one you decide to purchase should directly hinge on what types of jobs are needed to be completed with it. For basic removal of medium-sized trees, a skidder that has a smaller, less powerful grapple may be more cost-efficient. However, for large scale clearing of wooded areas, something that balances speed with added strength may be a better option. Most skidders are proficient at being able to perform well in rougher terrains, and tires that are grooved with extra gripping capability can serve their operators well in wetter, muddier areas. Thankfully, Mascus USA has a wide variety of different skidder models listed on its online database, so that you can easily compare and contrast machines until you find one that fits your specific circumstances.
