548G-III Grapple Skidder

Fit in even more productivity.

Need a skidder that can squeeze more productivity out of tight areas? The 548G-III is the perfect fit. Combining a compact, lightweight design with superb stability, it maneuvers easily in confined spaces where larger skidders can get bogged down. Like all John Deere skidders, the 548G-III features an industry-leading grapple that maintains constant clamp force, even if a load gets jarred. And a powerful John Deere engine that delivers ample horsepower and high torque rise, along with industry-leading fuel efficiency. For the speed and agility you need to move more wood at lower cost — in places you never thought you could be so productive.
