Is this the 2014 John Deere Grapple Skidder?

Large White Cropped

August 20, 2013



I received these photos last night of a new John Deere prototype Grapple Skidder.  I cannot tell you whether this unit is close to being completed or simply one of several designs.  This unit is currently undergoing field trials in Louisiana.  Once it hits the woods I hope to get some feedback from loggers as to how it performed, new design changes, etc.  From the cab design it looks as if Deere might be trying to incorporate a turn around seat to compete with Tigercat.  As I receive more info and pictures I will pass them along.
