Low-wide bunk

Tigercat's low-wide bunk system is unique to the the industry. The bunks are angled to reduce overall gate height and to eliminate the need for a vertical sliding gate.

In combination with the new series of hooked cranes, the low-wide bunk significantly reduces the chance of crane contact with the gate or bunk stakes. The working envelopeĀ of the crane is expanded for reduced machine travel and improved productivity.

Operator visibility and ergonomics are enhanced. The operator enjoys a clear sight line to the top of the load, increasing log placement accuracy and decreasing cycle times. In addition, the grapple stays within the operator’s view through the entire loading cycle for reduced strain.
