Garrett model 10
« on: May 08, 2016, 05:24:51 AM »
I have acquired a Garrett model 10 skidder and was curious if anyone had a manual on it and the gearmatic 8a winch? Where could a guy find parts for this machine? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

They were popular in the Northwest.There are members who have done what you want to do.They will be along soon.Two things you might try,1-forum search by typing in Garrett skidders,2-Cl search through Washington,Oregon,etc.There out there you just have to be patient.
 Good luck to you.

   Nice, looks like my 15, just a lot less guards underneath. Can't imagine pulling those Northwest logs of the 60's with these things.

Nice machine!  Looks like you'll run out of trees soon judging from the background.  :D

Let me know when you set her free.

I just did a google search.Garrett Model 10 and a lot of references came up including some old posts from the forum.
As Brendon said,the skidder should have an easy life unless there is a forest just over the horizon.

Trees are definitely slim around my house, but have a little bit of work to get her up and going 100%. We have a lead on some trees about an hour away. I've done quite a bit of looking on Google and forums and haven't been able to locate a manual for the skidder. I was able to find a Manual for the winch! I will hopefully get her out and start using her with the next month

I am very new to this forum so let me know if i need to do things different.  My Dad is likely buying a garrett 10. We have run the 15 16 and 20 a fair amount.  "Might be a manual with this one if so will copy and send if you like."  also for anyone else. what is pulling capacity for those little fellas.  he has a couple 3 foot cedars he is hoping it will move.  I think bucked it will do fine but let me know anyone that has ran them

jbower,welcome to the forum.
You say cedar? The cedar that I have is light. I have a 40hp tractor and I would grab onto a 3 foot cedar. But can't be on my side of the USA,not many 3 foot cedars around here.  ;D

Looks good, just be careful they are very top heavy and tip very easy trust me i ran one for about ten minutes and said "get me off this thing"! Little skidders are very handy as long as you know their limits. I have a gafner mini skidder a little bigger than the Garrett 10 and it does pretty much everything i ask it to.
