New From Tigercat: TCi 920 Forestry Dozer
Tigercat Industries has developed a forestry dozer, and the TCi 920 will make the rounds at several U.S. forestry industry trade shows this spring as part of its launch.
The dozer will be branded under the new TCi name, as Tigercat Industries continues to design machines for applications beyond forest harvesting systems. All products falling under the TCi brand are, and will continue to be designed, manufactured, and supported by Tigercat Industries.
Seeking to overcome shortcomings that timber harvesting professionals have experienced when applying standard-build, mass production dozers to forestry operations, the new 920 is designed specifically for use in logging applications.
The 920 is powered by the Tigercat FPT N45 Tier 4f engine rated at 101 kw (135 HP). It is equipped with a 190 mm (7.5 in.) pitch heavy duty undercarriage, a responsive and efficient closed loop track drive system, strong, impact-resistant belly pans, and has durable structural components throughout. The 920 provides the power, durability and versatility for deck clearing, road building and clean-up activities on logging sites.
The carefully designed forestry cab offers the operator clear sightlines augmented by the sloped front hood and rear-mounted exhaust. The cab is quiet and comfortable with a heated and cooled air ride seat, ergonomic armrest mounted joysticks, and a large touchscreen machine control system interface.
Famously, the last two years have been good times for wood products mills, by and large. Good for them. But does a rising tide truly lift all boats? Apparently not if the wood that built the boats came from Southern loggers. While mills might be doing better than ever, their raw material suppliers seem to be doing worse than ever…
