BTB 38: Fuel Efficient 630E Skidder
Published on: Saturday 1st November 2014
The skidder is significantly outproducing the company’s previous Deere 748G model and consuming around 200 L of fuel per day (or 20 L/h) as compared to the 225 L the 748G was burning. Operator Tyler Burtt is highly enthusiastic about the machine and is making full use of the Turnaround seat when performing decking functions and backing into the stand, saving time and fuel on short distance hauls.
Early in 2014, Tigercat released the E-series skidders. Available in North America and Europe, the 620E, 630E and 635E skidders are powered by the Tigercat FPT N67 Tier 4i engine. The 620E is rated at 164 kW (220 hp) and the two larger models at 190 kW (260 hp).
The Tigercat E-series skidders get an option for the Tigercat FPT N67 Tier 2 engine bringing the benefits of Tigercat power to more harvesting professionals worldwide.
