which one is better and why , john deere skidders mainly 

Firewoodjoe:
My opinion is TQ is hands down the best. Iíve run Deereís in 548,648,748 and 848. Timberjack 360,460ís in all types of years and models. From dragging chip wood to logs. Building rd to pushing trucks. Ones bought new and used. The TQ is smoother easier and more enjoyable. You can make it pull by not letting it spin. Lug it. Every direct drive Iíve run was like a grabby clutch drag car with bad tires. Digging holes, wonít climb hill sides and banging off the backs of trucks. Some like them. But I havenít figured out why yet.

Yeah isnít a tigercat like a hydrostatic one gear snowmobile type deal. That would be better than shifting. Thatís one machine Iíve never sat in is a tigercat. Iíd like to some day. Hopefully it will be a buncher.
