Tigercat Ships 10,000th Machine

Tigercat is please to announce that on September 7, 2010 the company shipped its 10,000th machine, a 720E feller buncher.

PARIS ON, SEPTEMBER 9, 2010 – Tigercat’s 10,000th production machine is destined for the operations of Clary Logging based in Cordele, Georgia. Owner, Robert Clary is a longtime Tigercat customer. He purchased the first serial production 726 feller buncher back in late 1992 which was the second Tigercat ever built. (The prototype 726 was purchased by Williston Timber earlier in 1992.)

According to Tigercat president Tony Iarocci, “It is very appropriate that the individual who purchased Tigercat’s first production machine has also purchased the 10,000th. We have been observing Clary Logging’s progressive operations for nearly two decades and are pleased to note that in addition to being good customers, Robert and his family have become respected friends.”

The 720E feller buncher was built at Tigercat’s rubber tire machine production facility in Cambridge Ontario. In addition to drive-to-tree feller bunchers, the plant houses the skidder and forwarder production lines. All employees at the plant as well as many veteran Tigercat team members from other facilities assembled for a group photo around the machine.
