One of the Princeton logging contractors has testing this new Cat 555 Skidder since last Christmas. It is one of 3 that Cat has out on test it is a huge machine. I have my 4 Runner parked beside it for size comparison. Word on the street is that when the test is over it will go back to the factory to be stripped down to see how well it survived. The Grapple picks up 3 bundles of wood and motors down to the landing. A couple of weeks ago their D-6 was stuck in the mud and this 555 went over and placed opened the grapple over the ripper lifted up and drove away with the 6.
