Tigercat Products Continue to Impress

Published: June 4th, 2013

“The success that Tigercat has achieved since AB Equipment took over the marketing and distribution of the product is nothing short of amazing,” says Product Manager, Mark Hill. “Demand has been huge and with new stock arriving regularly we’ve made it our mission to tell everyone well in advance of when they’re coming,” he said.

One of the ways that AB Equipment has marketed new product has been through an innovative programme of Demonstration Days. These have been held throughout New Zealand and have given potential customers and operators an opportunity to have Tigercat products come and be tested in a real time forestry environment. One of the most recent products to be put through its paces has been the Tigercat Flat Base S855C Shovel Logger. Others that have been given the Demo Day treatment over the last six months have been the 880 Logger, 1075 Forwarder and 610C Skidder.

Late last year a 38 strong group of New Zealand harvesting contractors and representatives from AB Equipment visited Tigercat factories in Canada and took in the Demo International Forestry Show. A highlight of the trip was the main Tigercat plant in Paris, Ontario where they gained an insight the company’s research and development programme including a glimpse into the future of Tigercat products.

AB Equipment has had previous success in the forestry industry with its range of Sumitomo Forestry products. Tigercat designs and manufactures premium quality, purpose built forestry equipment for felling, transporting, processing and loading tree length and cut-to-length timber.
