A high performance, heavy lifting loader, the T250D is suited to delimbing, merchandising and loading heavy, tree-length logs. The T250D can be equipped with a pull-through delimber, bar saw slasher, circle saw slasher or grapple saw for maximum flexibility. The strength-to-weight optimized boom system is designed to withstand the forces of tough duty delimbing and loading.

The efficient load sensing hydraulic system with swing priority and energy recovery delivers simultaneous power to all machine functions for high performance and response, while providing excellent fuel efficiency for reduced cost per tonne.

The Tigercat-built full forest duty undercarriage provides excellent tractive effort for mobility on or between decks.

Tigercat power. Tigercat support.

The T250D track loader 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

  • Efficient load sensing hydraulic system. High performance, low fuel consumption
  • Energy recovery swing system. Closed loop system recovers energy as swing decelerates
  • Dedicated swing pump. Quick swing cycles, enhanced pull-through delimbing performance
  • Automatic engine idle down. Reduced fuel consumption in variable wood flow situations
  • Tigercat-built F8 forestry undercarriage. Excellent stability, ground clearance and tractive effort
  • Unmatched service access. Hydraulic valves are top accessible underneath the deck plate cover
