BTB 41: TIGERCAT SHOWCASES OFF ROAD INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
Published on: Sunday 1st November 2015
ICUEE 2015 was a landmark show for Tigercat as it showcased its growing product offering for the utility sector. Tigercat debuted two new machines, the Tigercat FPT Tier 4 powered T726G street trencher and a new configuration of the AD610C utility carrier equipped with a digger derrick attachment. In addition, Tigercat displayed an M726E mulcher.
Tigercat’s off road equipment products are used across many industries including oil and gas, utilities and silviculture – wherever highly mobile, durable and reliable carriers are required for rugged terrain, high duty cycle applications, extreme temperatures and high levels of airborne debris. Tigercat mulchers are often used in transmission line ROW clearance and maintenance applications and the aerial device carriers are used for transmission line repair work in hard-to-reach areas.
Taunton, Massachusetts-based StreetWorks exclusively markets and supports the street trencher product line with a field population of approximately twenty T750 and T726E units. The 370 hp T726G is the latest model. The street trencher is designed to quickly and cost-effectively open asphalt and concrete roads to expose underground utility infrastructure. The street trencher cuts, crushes and leaves behind approximately 40 mm (1.5 in) in material suitable for reuse. This eliminates the need for saw-cutting, hammering and hauling and disposal of chunk broken pavement.
President Paul Lamb, vice president and general manager, John Mitchell and marketing manager, Deb Waz joined Tigercat staff, as well as sales representatives from Canadian dealer Wajax Equipment. Wajax has been actively marketing Tigercat off road industrial products – including mulchers and aerial device carriers – in the oil and gas and utility sectors for over five years.
