  • would that skidder have pulled that crane that died up the hill?

    • Would it have un flipped it? IDK, maybe. The D7 dozer is way stronger than this skidder.

  • There is something funny going on with its drive line! Looks like maybe different size tyers? Also looks like it's got a diff lock stuck on or maybe just a full time locked diff

  • Not sure if you'll see this, you likely have a lot of work before snow flies. It looks like the tires on the rear are a little bigger than the ones on the front exp with the constant slipping seen in the chains on the ground. On that series they should be the same sizes for rolling diameter, I think the gear ratios front/rear are the same.

  • Andrew is FEARLESS! I have run many a skidder over the years and he does well for his first time. The way he pulled that Ash tree without securing the skidder on that kind of slope means that he should have to use a wheelbarrow everywhere he goes? He needs something that big to move those balls around because it's obvious they are huge, Lol He is getting smarter with age, as at least he checked the brakes BEFORE attempting to use it. We need more people like this, as he is a shining example of what this country needs and what made it great.

  • Hi Andrew just a tip from an old skidder operator, take the tyre chains off, unless you are working in a LOT of mud,, they don't have that much effect on dry hard surface, they pick up snags / sticks and press them into the tyres. But the worst the chains wear out fast in the dry and are not cheep to replace.
