TIGERCAT’s range of skidders has taken a step forward with a completely redesigned operator station and numerous advancements to boost productivity and minimise downtime.

Tigercat’s H-series skidders introduce a new, larger cab, offering improved serviceability, reliability, and efficiency. The new skidder line includes the release of the 620H, 630H, and 632H four-wheel models, as well as the 625H and 635H six-wheel models.

The redesigned operator station provides 20 per cent more cab space than the previous E-series design. The window area has increased by 19 per cent, offering superior forward and rear visibility. Additional low side windows allow for better sightlines to all tyres.

A new and improved Turnaround system lets the operator rotate the seat 220°. Push-button controls lock and unlock the seat in any position in the range. The 220° seat rotation improves operator visibility, greatly reduces neck strain, and allows the operator to easily exit either side of the cab.

A durable, heavy-duty air-ride suspension seat with heating and cooling is designed to keep the operator comfortable all day long. A secure five-point harness comes standard for improved safety.

A completely redesigned HVAC system provides more efficient cooling capacity, 50 per cent more air vents, infinitely variable fan speed, and an automatic defrost option. A ventilated cup holder with adjustable airflow keeps drinks hot or cold. Dedicated storage locations are set aside with space for a lunch-box and hooks for a hardhat and jacket, along with a sturdy phone holder and convenient charging port.

All H-series skidders feature load-sensing hydraulics with larger, more efficient valves.
