Abandoned 550 Timberjack Log Skidder
This machine was so bushed in, that we had never been close to it before.
This time we came with a Stihl chainsaw and other tools of destruction to
clear away the decades of growth. Our guess is that it's been parked in the
forest for 20 to 30 years.
It looks to be in great shape....there may have been some transmission
issues judging by the add-on trans pressure gauge...but other than the
corrosion from a leaky battery box...it looks like a runner.

535B Caterpillar Skidder
I haven't worked around many cat skidders, this one seems alright, but the
guys say a John Deere is better. The deck sites are not always the best but
we do the best we can, I need lots of room to set the drilling rig
