Tigercat builds the most advanced, efficient and refined skidders. Hydraulic system improvements have boost fuel efficiency and performance to new heights. The 625E skidder is a powerful machine for steep slopes and high production logging applications.

Six-wheel skidder

With six-wheel drive and a high capacity grapple with a wide tip-to-tip opening, the 625E is built for extreme terrain and high production logging operations. Ideal applications include very soft or steep terrain, long distance skidding, oversized logs and continuous duty cycle around-the-clock applications.ᅠ

The difference is in the drive…

Hydrostatic drive offers many advantages. Performance in tough terrain is excellent because full tractive effort is available at any engine speed, minimizing wheel spin and improving breakout performance. The operator appreciates simplified drive control with no gear shifting.

Electronic control technology combined with Tigercat’s unique hydrostatic drive system allows the skidder to operate at variable engine rpm, automatically increasing engine speed when additional horsepower is demanded. The result is improved fuel economy.

Tigercat power. Tigercat support.

The 625E skidder is Tigercat FPT Tier 2 or Tier 4f powered. The Tier 4f engine conforms to the latest emissions standards in North America and Europe.

With the Tier 2 engine option, Tigercat brings the benefits of Tigercat power and support to harvesting professionals around the world.
