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.
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.
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.
With new features designed to boost operator comfort and reduce noise and heat within the cab, our new full-tree E‑Series Knuckleboom Loaders will keep you loading and moving at the landing.
Whether you need a tracked feller buncher’s maximized stability on wet, steep slopes or the speed and accuracy of a wheeled feller buncher, John Deere has you covered.
The 959ML Shovel Logger/Directional Feller is designed to handle all your steep-slope applications with its industry-leading leveling technology, slope-monitoring system, and four-point seat harness.
