Logging Evolution

From cutting his first load of wood in 1970 to currently producing over 100,000 tons annually, Larry Strickland of Southern Logging & Timber Co. has seen the wood business become “a whole new ball game.” Check out his story and the role that John Deere knuckleboom loaders, skidders, and feller bunchers are playing in his full-tree logging business.

Redesigned from the Inside Out

Our new L‑II Series Skidders have been redesigned from the inside out with a reinforced arch, an increased grappler squeeze, and new steering stops to reduce stress on the machine — and the operator.

Less Mess, Less Stress

We’ve dialed-in our new L‑II Series Wheeled Feller Bunchers with reconfigured electrical routings, new steering stops, and a redesigned exhaust chute so your machines can work as hard as you do.
