    848L Grapple Skidder traveling over piles of logs


    Built for the long haul.

    The 848L Grapple Skidder is changing the game with new grapple design that features box-style tongs for maximum strength and harder wear surfaces for long life. Add to that the more robust heavy-duty axles and the standard new Outboard-Extreme axles and you have a machine that sets a new standard for reliability.
