Allied Systems Company was founded in 1976 as a fabricator of material handling equipment for the wood products industry. Since that time, Allied has expanded greatly and now owns several different product lines, including Allied Marine Crane, Allied Winch, Allied Tree Harvester, Wagner Chip Dozer, Wagner Coal Dozer, Wagner Lumberjack, Wagner Steel Handler, Ranger Skidder and the Ranger Forwarder and Harvester.
For 30 years, Ranger has been the leader in the development of skidders that meet the real logger's need for simplicity and reliability. Components are typically more robust than the competition. This means durability and better resale value. Competitors often adapt general-purpose components for use on their skidders. Not Ranger. Ranger's Clark torque converters and transmissions, drivelines and, differentials, axles and final drives are configured specifically for skidders
