Skidders for Extracting Logs

Skidders typically work in conjunction with forestry harvesters to transport fallen trees, and certain kinds of skidders can even help push trees over as well. There are many different types of skidders to choose from, each with their own unique systems for pulling logs away to be harvested. Some are designed for speed while others are designed for especially steep slopes that require additional maneuverability. Choosing the right type of skidder will impact the productivity of your logging operation.

My Little Salesman has a wide variety of new and used skidders for sale that are designed to extract logs through short paths or across long distances using a variety of efficient methods.

Choosing the Right Skidder

Skidders can be classified into three different types:

  • Grapple Skidders - Grapple skidders have jaws that open from the bottom to grab a load of logs. The operator does not need to get out of the machine to estimate turns with this design, which considerably increases productivity. This is the most popular type of skidder.
  • Cable Skidders - Cable skidders have a winch cable and a choker set for gathering logs into place. The operator can use the winch to pull trees that are not accessible to other skidders. Cable skidders can handle steep inclines well.
  • Clambunk Skidders - These skidders work the same as grapple skidders, except the jaws open from the top instead of the bottom. This design allows for clambunk skidders to transport larger loads than grapple skidders. Although they can carry a lot, clambunk skidders have lower maneuverability levels in general.

What is the Difference Between Skidders and Forwarders?

Both skidders and forwarders can transport fallen logs to a nearby clearing. However, a forwarder completely lifts logs off the ground, while a skidder drags them. This means that forwarders have a smaller footprint than skidders, but they are not able to carry as many logs at once.
