DEERE CABLE SKIDDER 748L-II
The 748L Grapple Skidder was built from with valuable operator input. All L-Series models feature more robust heavy-duty axles. The new pressurized continuous-lube system and independent axle filters further improve durability and extend life up to 15,000 hours (not applicable to machines with dual-tire configurations). In the forest, uptime is the name of the game. And our L-Series Skidders arent interested in playing nice.
Gross Power: 196 kW (263 hp)
Gross Torque: 1,141 Nm (841 ft. lb.)
Max Grapple Capacity: 1.77 m2 (19.1 sq. ft.)
Operating Weight: 19,713 kg (43,610 lb.)
Our FT4/Stage IV diesel engines meet emission regulations without sacrificing power or torque. We built on our EPA Interim Tier 4 (IT4)/EU Stage IIIB solution to deliver the best combination of performance, efficiency, and reliability. These technologies are simple and fluid efficient.
During normal operating conditions, the engine's natural heat breaks down trapped particulate matter and cleans the exhaust filter without impacting machine operation. Ash-service intervals for the diesel particulate filter (DPF) are condition based, meaning the machine will notify the operator before service is required. Typically, ash service is not necessary until the first engine overhaul. Machine application, regular maintenance practices, and type of lubricating oil impact ash-service intervals.
John Deere FT4 engines maintain engine performance while minimizing total fluid consumption diesel fuel plus diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). The exceptionally low DEF consumption rate reduces the need for DEF by four to six times compared to some other FT4 systems.
L-Series machines combine best-in-class horsepower and an impressive power-to-weight ratio with a constant engine speed for superb responsiveness and maximum efficiency. Better machine balance optimizes pulling power, while improving stability when climbing hills, navigating adverse terrain, or hauling bigger payloads.
Engage all four tires, or just the front two or rear two as needed, to maneuver through tough terrain or out of tight spots.
Maximize efficiency and productivity with the easily customizable TimberNavi jobsite mapping system. Accessible through the handy in-cab monitor, its just part of the John Deere ForestSight suite of solutions available from your local dealer.
Our largest cab yet, at 104 cu. ft. and it's 50-percent quieter. Other fatigue-beating creature comforts include a more efficient HVAC system, improved ergonomic controls, and plenty of storage space.
Opt for a rotating high-backed seat with joystick steering. The rotating seat improves rearward visibility and minimizes neck strain.
Six high-intensity halogen lights are standard when you need to extend your workday beyond daylight. For additional illumination, opt for a working-light or LED package.
Multiple operators can adjust control settings to their individual preferences and save favorite configurations, reducing reprogramming time and helping keep them productively on the job.
Armrest-mounted electrohydraulic (EH) controls provide fingertip control of all machine functions and turn with you when you use the optional rotating seat. Joystick steering is smooth and responsive, providing intuitive, low-effort control of steering, direction, and ground speed.
Straight bushings at all blade joints deliver longer, trouble-free life and are easier to replace. Grease-thru pins ensure even lubrication and are more resistant to dust, rust, and debris.
Outboard-Extreme axles are the most rugged axles weve ever put to work in the woods. Designed with larger components to deliver maximum jobsite durability, and with a heavier weight to boost machine stability, Outboard-Extreme axles are standard on the 848L and 948L, optional on the 748L (not available on the 640L and 648L).
Beefy roller-bearing articulation joint helps ensure longer life. Boom-arch hoses are routed inside the arch, for maximum protection and ready repair access.
Limited relays and switches make quick work of electrical system troubleshooting and maintenance using diagnostic software.
New larger grapples give you more flexibility to configure a skidder to best match your application. The new arch design provides a better view to bunches for more efficient loading.
CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION (CVT)
The easy-to-use CVT transmission combines the smoothness and operating ease of a hydrostatic transmission with the fuel efficiency of a lockup torque converter.
No more shifting or shift shocks due to surging rpm. Simply set the maximum speed and let the transmission do the rest. Configurable speed ranges eliminate the need to hunt for the correct gear, shortening the learning curve for new operators while helping experienced pros maximize productivity.
