Basic information on the extraction-production process, including felling, skidding, handling and transport of wood, which is fully mechanized and automated. The aim of the article is to highlight the technical equipment and new possibilities in timber skidding. It covers general information, technical and dimensional specifications of machinery for skidding with or without choker. The paper analyses the current state and overview of forest wheeled skidders on the Slovak and foreign markets. Most importantly, it contains tables and graphs comparing the weight and size parameters of various types. Based on the above selected technical parameters of skidders, a statistical analysis has been carried out using regression analysis that informs about the compactness of the machine, as well as the performance parameters of the selected machines.
