BTB 32: 2012 Mid-South Forestry Equipment Show

Although heavy rains turned the demo site in the John W. Starr Memorial Forest into something swamp-like, staff from B&G Equipment and Tigercat managed to put together a successful show and machine demonstration.

Tigercat designers, sales and management personnel and dealer representatives from B&G Equipment, Davis Tractor, Forestry 21, G&S Equipment, Patrick Miller, Smith & Turner, Tejas Equipment and Tidewater Equipment were on hand to take in the show and visit with current and future Tigercat customers and their families.

During the demonstrations, a 718E feller buncher and 620D skidder felled and pulled to roadside, while the Tigercat T234 loader fed a chipper. A Tigercat 630D skidder and 726E feller buncher sat front and centre on static display. B&G Equipment sponsored the loader contest, providing a Tigercat 234 for the competition and hosted a fi sh fry lunch on Saturday. Several hundred visitors waited in line for their turn to fill their plates and make a donation to Log a Load for Kids.

The new 300 hp 726E feller buncher garnered a great deal of attention, Rob Pentesco of Tigercat informs a potential customer about the 726E Feller buncher while he sits in the cab.
