This machine is a John Deere Skidder Timberjack 460D. Timberjack is the world’s largest manufacturer of forestry machines, working as a subsidiary of John Deere since 2000.
The company, which in 2000 was acquired by the US company John Deere, can trace its origins to the Finnish Lokomo Group, which was founded in 1915. In the 1970s and 1980s, a number of mergers occurred among which the Swedish Kockums, RSVP and Bruun systems. In 1990, it was acquired by the Canadian foresttry machinery manufacturer Timberjack, whose name was then used on all markets.
The brand of Timberjack with a donkey sitting in the logo for forestry equipment disappeared altogether in 2005 and is now marketed under the name John Deere with the brand used by this company. What do you think of this powerful machine?
