Tigercat forwarders are built for tough applications and long term durability and uptime with strong frames, oversize pins and high quality cylinders. The heavy duty centre section is equipped with tapered roller bearings in the articulation and oscillation joints.

Stable and powerful with extreme duty wide-spread bogie axles, the 1085C 25 tonne forwarder is ideally suited to high production forwarding operations in extreme terrain and steep slopes.

Compared with a conventional tw0-speed forwarder transmission, the infinitely variable WideRange® drive provides extremely high tractive effort while permitting quicker working travel speeds.

Excellent component layout and easy access to service points makes for quick and painless daily maintenance routines. The operating environment is expansive and comfortable with optimized sight lines and ergonomics.

In-cabin sound levels are under 66 db at full 2,200 rpm engine speed. Lighting, operator controls and interface and the climate control systems are well engineered, contributing to high productivity and reduced operator fatigue during long shifts.
