The new six-wheel 768L-II Bogie Skidder delivers outstanding traction, stability, and flotation, so you can work in wet conditions and on steep slopes. It’s built tough to carry hefty loads over long distances — and help your operation reach its full potential.
A constant engine speed helps provide superb multifunction performance. The elimination of sudden surges and engine overspeed also reduces component wear and helps extend engine life.
Confidently pull heavy loads and maneuver on hillsides and in wet terrain thanks to superb bogie-axle stability. Operators can also appreciate the reduced machine vibration and smooth ride.
Grapple options ranging from 17.5 to 22.3 square feet help you deliver more wood to the landing with fewer skids. Grapple squeeze provides a constant pressure, so operators are less likely to lose a log, even if a load gets jarred.
The easy-to-use CVT transmission automatically senses the load and delivers more torque and tractive effort as needed to maintain the desired speed.
Arch design provides an expansive rearward view to the grapple and jobsite behind the machine, while a long wheelbase and improved boom-arch envelope increase dexterity and maneuverability in the woods. The tight turning radius enhances agility at the landing.
