Applications and Benefits of Cat® Skidder Rentals

A skidder is a heavy logging vehicle that pulls cut trees from a cutting site to a landing in a process called skidding. The Cat Rental Store offers wheeled and tracked skidders to meet your application's requirements. Depending on the type of terrain you are dealing with, both designs have their own unique sets of advantages.

When working on hard ground that's relatively level, skidders with wheels are the best choice. Wheeled skidders thrive on paved ground, concrete surfaces and landscaped areas, as they offer much higher rates of speed than their tracked counterparts.

Track skidders excel on more demanding terrain at slower speeds, as they are unstoppable on challenging ground with mud, sand or snow. They also do well on uneven or wet areas that wheels alone can’t handle.

Some of the benefits you'll see by renting a Cat wheel or track skidder from us include:

  • Specially designed axles impart optimal power to the ground with less stress on the drivelines and transmission.
  • Innovative hydraulic technology delivers precision steering, braking and blade functioning with increased fuel efficiency.
  • Wheel skidder booms and arches feature rugged box-section construction for transferring heavy loads safely and quickly.
  • Standard air conditioning, heating, filtration and air pressurization effectively control cab climate for increased productivity and comfort.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER A WHEEL OR TRACK SKIDDER RENTAL?

A Cat skidder rental can add value to your business in several ways. You'll avoid costs such as storage, maintenance and transportation. A late-model rental will also give you access to the latest technologies that will increase your job site productivity. And when you consider the importance of meeting deadlines in the forestry industry, a skidder rental will offer a quick equipment solution when you're trying to beat the clock.
