TIGERCAT FOR KING ONE
Southland logger Andrew Pratt (Pratty), owner of King One, a large ground base and hauler operation in the south, has recently taken delivery of a new Tigercat 632E skidder, replacing a loyal and faithful Tigercat 610C that ran well over 10,000 hours troublefree. The larger 632E has the new Tigercat FPT engine and new EHS high speed transmission, new and improved turnaround seat and cabin, larger axles, load-sensing hydraulics, high-speed heavyduty winch and the larger grapple. The 632E joins a stable of AB machines that include Sumitomo and Tigercat models, including a 300TL, 240TL, 225, 300TL feller buncher with tethering bar, 880 harvester with a Waratah 625 serving the Bellis BE60 Hauler. Pratty is currently setting up a tethering system to take on the steeper blocks ahead. Pictured with his new machine is operator, Brandon. AB Equipment’s Dean Cousins made the sale.
