Tigercat’s new 1055C, 1075C and 1085C forwarders are now available.
They are powered by the Tigercat FPT N67 engine. Tigercat’s partnership with FPT Industrial provides a solution for the Tier 4 compliant markets in North America and Europe. The benefits can now reach the remainder of the globe with the introduction of the Tigercat FPT Tier 2 engine. All Tigercat FPT engines use a second-generation common rail fuel injection system. The biggest benefit for Tigercat machine owners is that the Tigercat FPT engines are fully supported by Tigercat and the Tigercat dealer network.
The forwarders have two crane options. The 165 kN F165T85 (standard on the 1075C) and the larger 195 kN capacity F195T85 (standard on the 1085C and optional on the 1075C). Tigercat indicates that the F195T85 crane is capable of lifting 20 to 30% heavier loads at the same reach compared with any other forwarder crane on the market. They also indicate that the crane boasts 22 to 66% more slew torque than any competing crane. Both cranes are designed with a hooked profile to increase the working envelope for reduced machine travel and improved productivity. The FG43 and FG53 series Tigercat grapples are used with the cranes and have larger load areas of 0,43 m² (4.6 ft²) and 0,53 m² (5.7 ft²) respectively.
The forwarders use Tigercat’s low-wide™ bunks. These bunks are angled to reduce overall gate height. In combination with the hooked crane, the low-wide bunk system can decrease loading and unloading cycle times. The low-wide system is available for both the 1075C and 1085C forwarders. The 1085C features Tigercat’s WideRange® transmission. WideRange provides high tractive effort for steep slope applications, while permitting quicker working travel speeds. The 1085C is designed to carry large loads over extreme terrain and slopes. Source: http://www.tigercat.com/c-series-forwarders-tigercat-power/
