I wonder what that bad boy costs.  Can I get it with the optional sharks with laser beams on their heads?  :D

I wondered when they would come out with a forwarder. They basically took cats forestry equipment Iím guessing. Itís resigned but they have a nice looking track harvester. Like the cat 501 or fabteks. But that forwarder Iím not sure about. Visibility looks horrible from the outside.

I see the local cat dealer just put a weiler grapple Skidder out front on display! I bet some harvesters will be around here before long.

 Visibility looks horrible from the outside.
Joe that's the first thing I thought as well.  Looks as bad for forward visibility as an old 540 A cable skidder with the high front end.      Must just look that way though. Must be different from inside.   They wouldn't engineer something with that big a flaw now would they?

How much are the current skidders? I read somewhere that they were on the cheaper end but havenít seen anything to prove it. Tigercat, then Deere is Weiler close to Deere or definitely lower?

I like what I see in them. Not sure about the cat engine though.

Believe it or not, around here Deere is more expensive than Tigercat. I priced skidders last year and was surprised that a new Tigercat 620 is cheaper than a 648L2

Jon cuts for the forestry company I used to work for. He had some problems with that 157 and Weiler ended up taking it back. He ended up with a Weiler 457 and Waratah 623 instead.
