L-Series II Skidders: Simply Reliable

How did we improve upon our popular L-Series Skidders? We simplified.

Incorporating a simpler, easier-to-maintain design, L-Series II machines are built to withstand the toughest forest environments. We took our most powerful, productive skidders ever and continually refined them, based on invaluable input from loggers like you.

Not content to stand pat, we made over 1,600 parts changes, including more robust electrical harnesses, fittings, hoses, cylinder guards, grapple-tong teeth, and more. And we made subtle changes under the hood, such as improving component placement and dramatically reducing the complexity of the electrical and hydraulic systems. 

All with the goal of enhancing our customer's overall experience with machines that are simply better.
