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.
