Compact 602 skidder prototype

Tigercat will debut a prototype model 602 skidder at Les Cognées, a unique forestry event to be held in the heart of the French Alps in Les Gets, France, June 24-25.

The 602 skidder design team is meeting the challenge to produce a small, compact, lightweight skidder platform that can be adapted to a number of niche applications. The prototype 602 model will be equipped with a Tigercat FPT Tier 4f N45 engine. It will use centre joint oscillation with the goal of achieving an overall width estimated at 2,8 m (110 in).

The 602 prototype will be fitted with a French designed and manufactured swing boom for use primarily in Europe.
