The low-wide bunk system allows easier crane operation and decreases loading and unloading cycle times. 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 envelope 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.
JMG Fillion is proud to own the very first Tigercat 25-tonne 1085B forwarder ever built. BTB followed up with the Fillion family in northern Quebec to see how the new machine was working out for them.
