Tigercat introduces 610E skidder

Tigercat 610E skidder set to lead North American small skidder size class

BRANTFORD ON, MARCH 12, 2015 – Tigercat has just released the 610E skidder, its latest Tier 4 equipped offering. The 610E is designed to exceed expectations in the North American small skidder size class.

Tigercat 610E skidder pulls a load of wood. Pine needles line the forest floor, trees line the background and a pile of cut trees are to the left of the skidder.

Tigercat’s Tier 4 solution can be packaged into a physically smaller engine enclosure, which provided the 610E design team with some flexibility to develop a machine layout that optimizes operator sightlines, while factoring in access to service points, machine balance, overall size and weight.

The 610E comes standard equipped with Tigercat’s exclusive EHS drive system. EHS is capable of providing exceptional tractive effort as well as high top speed. This is accomplished with advanced computer logic and the ability to take one of the drive motors offline when high tractive effort is not required. In this case all pump flow is directed to one hydraulic motor, increasing both travel speed and motor efficiency.

The compact 610E skidder leads its class in agility, durability and performance. It is ideal in tight spaces, soft soil conditions and selective logging applications. The ergonomic Turnaround equipped cab provides the operator with comfort and clear sightlines. High performance, responsive control, excellent service access and painless maintenance routines make Tigercat skidders a top choice among skilled operators.

About Tigercat FPT engines

Tigercat FPT engines meet Tier 4 emission levels without added complexity or regeneration cycles. The key is the selective catalyst reduction (SCR), which converts the harmful components of the exhaust gas stream into water, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. The engine series offers improved reliability and lower long-term maintenance costs. Best of all, Tigercat FPT engines are fully supported by Tigercat and the Tigercat dealer network.
