Tigercat to debut compact 602 skidder prototype in France
Canada-based forest machinery manufacturer Tigercat Inc. has revealed that it will debut a prototype model 602 skidder at Les Cognées, a unique forestry event to be held in the heart of the French Alps in Les Gets, France, June 24-25, 2017.
According to a statement, the company’s design team for the Tigercat 602 skidder is “meeting the challenge” to produce a small, compact, lightweight skidder platform that can be adapted to a number of niche applications. The prototype 602 model will be equipped with a Tigercat FPT Tier 4f N45 engine. It will use centre joint oscillation with the goal of achieving an overall width estimated at 2.8 m (110 in).
The 602 prototype will be fitted with a Belgian designed and manufactured swing boom for use primarily in Europe.
