BTB 38: 630E Skidder

BTB recently visited a Tier 4i 630E skidder near Hinton, Alberta owned by Seth Dickinson (Dickinson Logging).

BTB 38: 630E Skidder

The skidder is significantly outproducing the company’s previous Deere 748G model and consuming around 200 L of fuel per day (or 20 L/h) as compared to the 225 L the 748G was burning. Operator Tyler Burtt is highly enthusiastic about the machine and is making full use of the Turnaround seat when performing decking functions and backing into the stand, saving time and fuel on short distance hauls.
