FIRST TIGER­CAT 635G FOR DOU­GLAS

New Zealand Logger - - New Iron -

Pete and Brad, from Dou­glas Log­ging, have taken de­liv­ery of the first Tiger­cat 635G skid­der to hit our shores and have quickly put it to work in their high pro­duc­tion ground base crew work­ing down on the Pouto penin­sula, south of Dar­gav­ille. The new G-se­ries skid­der runs the Tiger­cat tier 2 en­gine boast­ing 285hp, an Ef­fi­cient High Speed (EHS) trans­mis­sion for greater travel speed and con­sid­er­ably larger im­ple­ment pump for faster and smoother arch/ grap­ple op­er­a­tion. Sea­soned cam­paigner, Muzza, who is pic­tured with his new ma­chine, has driven all of the skid­ders in the Dou­glas fleet and the per­for­mance of the new ad­di­tion has blown him away; un­be­liev­able, he reck­ons!
