Tigercat has introduced the new compact 612 grapple skidder, designed to excel in tight selective harvesting applications. The grapple skidder is the second variation to be built on the 612 platform after the release of the European-focused 612 dual winch skidder earlier this year.
Key design features include the oscillating center section and the optional blade tongs. The oscillating center section narrows the stance of the machine, allowing easier navigation through tight stands. The optional blade tongs offer additional versatility for decking wood and other secondary duties.
The Tigercat 612 skidder is equipped with the Tigercat FPT N67 Stage V engine, delivering 208 hp. Combined with Tigercat’s efficient drive system, the 612 skidder is powerful and fuel efficient.
The operator’s cab is spacious with clear sightlines. The heavy-duty air ride suspension seat is climate controlled and fully adjustable. Turn-around provides increased comfort and easy entry and exit from either side of the machine. The operator enjoys full control of all machine functions in any position within the 220-degree range.
