Loggers came from all corners of the globe for the every-four-year International AUSTimber event. Over 30 knowledgeable and friendly Tigercat and Onetrak staff members greeted Tigercat visitors. They answered questions and discussed new technologies to improve productivity.

Tigercat and Onetrak featured an impressive showcase of machines including the newly released 1075C forwarder, 630E and 615E skidders – all equipped with the Tigercat FPT Tier 2 engine. On live demo was an H845C harvester, an LH855C harvester, an LX830D feller buncher, a 630E skidder, an M726E mulcher and the 1075C forwarder. The static display was rounded out by an LS855C shovel logger, an 855C feller buncher and an M726E mulcher. There was Tigercat pride everywhere after thousands of Tigercat hats were given out to loyal customers that stopped by the site.

A big thank you to all the customers that took the time to visit with us at the show. Tigercat and Onetrak look forward to hanging out our flags again in Latrobe City at AUSTimber 2020.
