Any one of them should be fine if it has been a well  maintained unit during its years of use. The small timberjacks, valmets, and JD's are popular here.

I do not think that the JD 440 was made in the 1980's. By then you are into the 540 & 640. I think the 440 was produce in the 1960 thru the 1970's.  Another thing to think about using a skidder is the safety  provided by the roll cage. They keep the dead limbs and tree from hitting the operator. Send me an e-mail if you have any questions about the 440's - I have two of them.  mike
