602 grapple skidder from Tigercat ideal for selective logging work

Tigercat 602 grapple skidder in operation in forest

Quick, compact and fuel efficient, the Tigercat 602 grapple skidder is ideal for high value selective logging in tight or challenging terrain.

A fixed front axle with an oscillating centre section allows the 602 to achieve a narrow overall width of 2.7 metres (106 in).

The Tigercat FPT N45 Tier 4f engine delivers 125 kW (168 hp) at 2,200 rpm while conforming to emissions standards for North America and Europe.

Performance in tough terrain is excellent with no gear shifting required. Full tractive effort is available at any engine speed, minimizing wheel spin and improving breakout performance.

Maximum fuel efficiency is achieved by the use of Tigercat's load sensing hydraulic system. Electronic control technology combined with Tigercat's unique hydrostatic drive system allows the skidder to operate at variable engine rpm, automatically increasing engine speed when additional horsepower is required.

Tigercat's Tier 4 solution is packaged into a physically smaller engine compartment than competing machines, leading to clear operator sightlines. Excellent cab ergonomics, Turnaround and the benefits that come with hydrostatic drive, along with painless maintenance routines, make the Tigercat 602 grapple skidder a top choice among operators.
