Tigercat FPT powers D-series loaders

Tigercat released its next generation 250D and T250D loaders this spring.

BRANTFORD ON, JUNE 17, 2014 – The D-series loaders are powered by the Tigercat FPT N67 Tier 4i engine delivering 160 kW (215 hp). The high horsepower Tigercat engine is extremely fuel-efficient and positions the 250D/T250D at the top end of its size class. The 250B and T250B loaders will remain available to markets outside of North America and Europe, where Tier 4 is not required.

Tigercat has introduced additional enhancements to the D-series loaders to increase productivity and performance especially with respect to multi-functioning capabilities. With a highly refined hydraulic system, the main boom, travel and grapple functions are now routed through a new control valve, which improves multi-functioning performance and response. A separate valve is used solely for attachments and auxiliary hydraulics. The electronic controls have been replaced with pilot controls and the new joystick handles are taller, with improved ergonomics.

Other design features that maximize comfort and daily service access for the operator include the large entry platform, an air ride suspension seat and insulation and isolation mounting for reduced vibration and in-cab noise levels. The engine and hydraulic component layout has improved with easy access and serviceability in mind.

About the Tigercat FPT engine series

Tigercat FPT engines meet Tier 4 emission levels without the need for variable geometry turbochargers, an EGR system, a higher capacity cooling system, an intake throttle body or a diesel particulate filter. Furthermore, the engine series offers improved reliability and lower long-term maintenance costs. Most importantly, Tigercat FPT engines are fully supported by Tigercat and the Tigercat dealer network, including all parts, service, warranty and technical support.
