The 890 logger is a purpose-built forestry swing machine – the largest in the Tigercat range and a true west coast machine. The logger range is designed to eliminate the design compromises found in excavator conversions. From the ground up, the entire machine is designed for full time forestry duty.

One machine. Three jobs.

The 890 can be configured as a loader with various power clam and butt-n-top grapple options. The boom geometry and cab positioning provide unmatched right-hand side visibility. Equipped with a live heel boom system, the 890 is a highly capable shovel logger with excellent stability, tractive effort and swing torque. The 890 can also be configured as a high capacity processor capable of running large harvesting heads in demanding duty cycles.

Some of the many advantages of the 890 over excavator conversions include higher cooling capacity, a better operating environment, stronger undercarriage components and extremely efficient hydraulic circuits. The result is higher production, uptime and fuel efficiency for lower operating cost per tonne.

Tigercat power. Tigercat support.

The 890 logger is Tigercat FPT Tier 2 or Tier 4f powered. Tier 4f conforms to the latest emissions standards in North America and Europe. With the Tier 2 engine configuration, Tigercat brings the benefits of Tigercat power and support to harvesting professionals around the world.

Key Benefits

  • Tigercat FPT C87 engine with Tier 4f emissions compliance – clean, powerful and efficient; fully supported by Tigercat
  • High horsepower engine significantly increases machine productivity and multi-function speed relative to excavator conversions without compromising fuel efficiency
  • Dedicated swing pump – reserves all main hydraulic pump flow for boom and attachment functions, increasing speed and productivity
  • Energy recovery swing system – closed loop drive feeds power back to the engine as swing decelerates, reducing heat and fuel consumption and recovering energy for other machine functions
  • Dedicated attachment pump – dedicated flow for attachment improves performance, control and efficiency
  • Large diameter swing bearing with twin swing drives for high torque and long life
  • Power operated side door and clamshell-style roof enclosure for excellent access to major components and daily service points
  • Super-duty Tigercat-built FH400 forestry undercarriage 
  • High illumination LED lighting – low glare, daylight working conditions for high nightshift productivity, reduced operator fatigue
  • High capacity cooling system – automatic variable speed for improved fuel efficiency; automatic reversing cycle to purge dust and debris
  • Full length front window and additional floor windows for clear sightline to the tracks
