Incorporating a less complex, easier-to-maintain design, John Deere L-II Series Skidders are well equipped to handle the toughest forest environments.

Operator comfort equals more productivity, so it makes sense our cabs are designed by loggers for loggers. As a result, the quiet and spacious cab, highly efficient HVAC system, and operator configurable controls all contribute to more comfortable and productive operators – helping to boost your bottom line.

John Deere Skidders give you superb power and versatility

The L-II Series Skidders combine impressive horsepower and power-to-weight ratio with a constant engine speed. In addition, the rock-solid stability provides excellent pulling power – especially when climbing hills, navigating adverse terrain, or hauling big loads.

Routine maintenance and breakdowns are assisted by John Deere FORESTSIGHT™. And with a JDLink™ subscription, alerts can be sent to your computer, mobile device or direct to us at RDO Equipment to advise immediate machine issues. It’s all about keeping your machines and your business up and running.
