TIGERCAT FOR NGARUNUI

New Zealand Logger - - New Iron -

Ryan and An­gel, of Ngarunui Hold­ings, have taken de­liv­ery of a new Tigercat 635G skid­der for their ground-base oper­a­tion north of Whangarei to re­place their older 635D model. When they were con­sid­er­ing the re­place­ment of the older work­horse they only had eyes for the new ‘G’ series model. With its in­creased HP, EHS trans­mis­sion and larger im­ple­ment pump, it stood head and shoul­ders above the rest. Run­ning the 780/55-28.5 rear bo­gie con­fig­u­ra­tion has al­lowed Ngarunui to fit Clark band tracks to the rear tyres for in­creased trac­tive ef­fort in the of­ten muddy and steep ter­rain. Pic­tured with their new beast, from left, are Piki Ay­erst-Brown, Sandi Ay­erst, An­gel Ay­erst, Rod­ney Taki­moana, Winky Tipene, Nick Wall, Rowan MacIn­doe, Sonny, Steve Ta­here and on the tyres are Ryan Don­nelly and Sonny.
