On the brand issue - remember that the Timberjack machines produced today are Deere machines painted green.  Deere bought TJ a couple of years ago and changed the product line.  The Prentice 490/CTR 950 skidders are based on the 460C Timberjack using a Dana Torque Converter transmission and Dana outboard planetary axles.  I also believe that Ranger uses similar components in new machines produced today.  Komatsu has made a deal with Allied to produce a Komatsu labeled skidder for their distribution that may be introduced at the Oregon Logging Confrence.

Model comparisons -
Deere                    TJ                    Cat             Prentice/CTR
548G-III               360D
648G-III               460D                525B          490/950
748G-III               560D                535B          Coming Soon!
848G-III               660D                545B
