River Ridge Equipment started as a remanufacturer of John Deere skidders and skidder components.  We also sell partially remanufactured skidders, new Viking log trailers, used equipment of all brands and have a large parts department with both new, used and remanufactured parts.  Our service department performs work on all makes and models of logging and construction equipment, and we have a service truck for field repairs.

Our remanufactured skidders are stripped to the bare frame and rebuilt to like-new condition.  These remanufactured machines come with a powertrain warranty attached.  In addition to remanufacturing skidders for resale, we also remanufacture customer tractors.  This is a highly economical way to extend the service life of your machine.  For one-third the cost of a new machine, our customers are extending the life of their existing machines by five to seven years and more.  For more information and current inventory, visit our Remanufactured Skidders page.

Our partially remanufactured skidders do not go through our full process.   However, many of these machines will have new or rebuilt engines with warranty.  We inspect engines, transmissions, cylinders, pumps, hoses, grapples, and all other working parts and repair or replace components as needed to make these dependable skidders.  Our goal with our partially remanufactured machine is to provide an economical price on a woods ready tractor.  A complete list of current inventory can be found on our Remanufactured Skidders page.

River Ridge Equipment is proud to carry a full line of Viking four bolster trailers, plantation trailers and lowboy trailers.  Viking has long been recognized as the toughest log trailer on the market and have a reputation of providing many service free years on the job.  These trailers are engineered and built to withstand the strenuous demands of our industry.  Please visit our Viking Trailers page for more information.
