Tigercat gives sneak peek of prototype logger

Tigercat 865 prototype logger

A purpose-built logger, the Tigercat 865 will offer advantages over excavator conversions, including better service access, stronger swing torque and good operator visibility.  

The 865 logger can be configured as a loader with boom options for various grapple types, or as a high capacity processor, capable of running large harvesting heads in demanding duty cycles. Dual swing drives will provide ample torque and speed for high-performance loading or processing. The Tigercat FPT N67 engine also delivers 165 kW (221 hp) at 1,900 rpm.

Service access has been carefully thought out with the ability to step down into the centre of the machine for clear, unobstructed access to the engine and daily service points. Large enclosure doors and a spring assist side service platform provide a large, stable work area for performing maintenance on hydraulic components and changing filters. A large cast counterweight provides excellent stability with a swing-out door that allows access to the engine from the rear of the machine.

The rear entry elevated cab, full-length front window, and additional floor windows provide superior visibility with clear sightlines. LED lighting and the rearVIEW camera system further augment operator visibility.
