Based on some of your best input, the John Deere 768L-II Bogie Skidder boasts a wealth of performance and durability features to keep you running long and strong. Our latest upgrades reflect years of continual refinement that have resulted in a proven machine thats simple to operate, easy to maintain, and reliable to own.

For work in wet conditions and on steep slopes, the 768L-II Bogie Skidder can turn the tide. Combining tenacious tractive ability and flotation with reduced ground pressure, this six-wheel specialist is designed to carry large loads longer distances.
INDEPENDENT AXLE-DIFF LOCK
Engage the front and rear axles, or just the front or rear as needed, to maneuver over tough terrain.
Confidently pull heavy loads and maneuver on hillsides and in wet terrain thanks to superb bogie-axle stability. Operators can also appreciate the reduced machine vibration and smooth ride.
Grapple options ranging from 17.5 to 22.3 square feet help you deliver more wood to the landing with fewer skids. Grapple squeeze provides a constant pressure, so operators are less likely to lose a log, even if a load gets jarred.
CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION
The easy-to-use CVT transmission automatically senses the load and delivers more torque and tractive effort as needed to maintain the desired speed.
VISIBILITY AND AGILITY
Arch design provides an expansive rearward view to the grapple and jobsite behind the machine, while a long wheelbase and improved boom-arch envelope increase dexterity and maneuverability in the woods. The tight turning radius enhances agility at the landing.
