Simplified routing of the electrical and hydraulic systems improves reliability and eases service. Wiring and hoses are placed for protection against wear and damaging bends.

Combining impressive horsepower and power-to-weight ratio with a constant engine speed, L-Series II Skidders deliver superb responsiveness with maximum efficiency. Superior stability ensures excellent pulling power, especially when climbing hills, navigating adverse terrain, or hauling bigger payloads. Higher-ply tire options available from the factory increase tire strength for carrying heavier loads.

The easy-to-use CVT transmission automatically senses the load and delivers more torque and tractive effort as needed to maintain the desired speed.

New steering sensors control articulation speed when nearing frame-to-frame contact, cushioning impact during full articulation and improving operator comfort.

Optional on the 748L-II, Outboard-Extreme axles are designed with larger components to deliver maximum jobsite durability, along with a heavier weight to boost machine stability.
