Specif­i­cally de­signed for tough tim­ber ex­trac­tion

New high vis­i­bil­ity arch means a 10% im­prove­ment in vis­i­bil­ity to the ground through the arch

Australian Forests and Timber - - SKIDDERS -

TIGERCAT’S NEW 632E has taken the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of Tigercat skid­ders to a whole new level with larger rear axles, hy­draulic cylin­ders and main pump.

“The 632E fea­tures the largest grap­ple avail­able in the in­dus­try to­day and sets a new stan­dard for ex­treme pro­duc­tiv­ity in tim­ber ex­trac­tion in the tough­est con­di­tions,” says David Hazell, Managng Di­rec­tor of One­trak, Aus­tralian agent for Tigercat.

The 632E can be equipped with the largest grap­ple of­fered on any four-wheel skid­der on the mar­ket. The larger 2,1 m² (23 ft²) op­tion has a tip-totip open­ing of 3 860 mm (152 in).

The 632E is pow­ered by the sim­ple and re­li­able Tigercat FPT N67 Tier 2 en­gine with peak power of 290 hp (216 kW) at 2,000 rpm and rated power of 288 hp (215 kW) at 2,100 rpm.

David said that com­ple­ment­ing the higher horse­power and larger grap­ple, the hy­draulic sys­tem and driveline had been ex­ten­sively up­graded. Sev­eral com­po­nents and struc­tures have been up­sized for im­proved dura­bil­ity.

The 632E uses a larger main hy­draulic pump and valves for faster op­er­a­tion and bet­ter mul­ti­func­tion­ing. The hy­draulic cylin­ders are larger al­low­ing the ma­chine to run pres­sures that are 10% lower while in­creas­ing per­for­mance by 10% on av­er­age. Cylin­der rod sizes have been in­creased by 25%.

Load sens­ing con­trol and a sim­pli­fied steer­ing cir­cuit lead to more re­spon­sive and ad­justable steer­ing con­trol. A newly en­hanced EHS® trans­mis­sion pro­duces 11% more torque - with the same top speed as the pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tion of EHS.

The new OB20 rear axle - spe­cially de­signed for the 632E - pro­vides 47% more torque ca­pac­ity and nearly twice the life on all bear­ings. The ser­vice brakes and park brake are in­cor­po­rated into the new axle. The axle mount­ing has been re­designed to use four high-strength 30 mm (1.18 in) bolts and two 30 mm studs on each side mounted to a mas­sive 77 mm (3 in) thick steel frame. The new de­sign trans­fers the force to the skid­der chas­sis and can bet­ter han­dle the higher torque load of the new axle and up­rated EHS drive. Rear drive shafts have been in­creased in size to 8.5C from 7C.

Op­er­a­tors will see ad­di­tional im­prove­ments in the cab start­ing with the au­to­matic, air-ride seat. A new in­stru­ment panel lay­out im­proves place­ment of elec­tri­cal out­lets and the elec­tronic con­trol sys­tem dis­play. Op­er­a­tors will en­joy finer joy­stick con­trol of the travel speed. The new high vis­i­bil­ity arch means a 10% im­prove­ment in vis­i­bil­ity to the ground through the arch. LED lights, im­proved boom light lo­ca­tion and a new arch light fur­ther en­hance vis­i­bil­ity to the grap­ple area.
