568 Forest Machine

Overview

As the first model in the Cat 500 Series of forest machines, the 568 meets Tier 4 Interim emissions standards. The 568 features increased horsepower, more efficient hydraulics, longer track frames for more stability, and ground-level accessibility for maintenance.

It is available in a general forestry configuration for road building, site prep and processing; and in a log loader version for log loading, shovelling, butt-n-top loading and millyard applications.
