Track Skidders allow loggers to work ground they could not skid with traditional equipment. These rugged, durable machines operate in steep slopes and provide excellent flotation in soft, wet underfoot conditions.
Field-proven Cat diesel engines, heavy-duty torque converters and three-speed transmissions are matched to deliver high horsepower for more drawbar pull, improved skidding performance and ease of operation.
Cat Track Skidders provide unsurpassed performance and application flexibility due to superior balance, torque converter power trains and expanded track and grapple/arch options.
Cat Track Type Tractor-sized heavy-duty tracks prolong the life of key undercarriage components, including rollers, idlers, pins, bushings and shoes. Extended track roller frames place more track under grapple/winches and enhance balance.
Load sensing hydraulic systems reduce horsepower consumption and system heat. Single levers control grapple and tong hydraulics, reducing operator effort for improved productivity. Exclusive Auto-Grab hydraulics maintain constant tong gripping pressures to compensate for shifting loads.
Excellent all-around viewing area, angled seats, and easy-to-reach controls reduce operator fatigue and increase productivity.
Less service time means more uptime. Major components are designed as modules and most can be removed without disturbing or removing others.
Cat dealers offer a wide range of services that can be set up under a Customer Support Agreement when equipment is purchased. Dealers will assist you in choose a plan that can cover everything from machine and attachment selection to replacement, helping you to receive the best return on your investment.
