748H Grapple Skidder

Being the best means using the least.

Own an H-Series Skidder, and you use a lot less fuel. These misers scrimp and save gallons a day with efficient Tier 3 PowerTech™ Plus engines and fuel-sipping, direct-drive PowerShift™ transmissions. The 748H auto-reversing fan keeps your engine (and your fuel) cooler while blowing away clogs that reduce efficiency. And while they carry more than their share of the workload, smart weight distribution ensures you're not burning away your profits.
