The 2160 loader forwarder has a 27-ton payload and will interest users due to its multiple applications
Tigercat’s 2160 loader forwarder is suited to mill yard applications and number of tough duty off-road industrial applications. It has a 27-tonne payload capacity and is equipped with Tigercat’s WideRange® drive system and Tigercat-designed and built bogie axles for good tractive effort, quick travel speeds and mechanical reliability.
The upper assembly has a 9 m (30 ft) knuckleboom loader style boom system with powerful lift capacity and heavy-duty construction. The machine is designed to be extremely stable. Tigercat’s unique centre section design provides good stability and reduces reliance on the oscillation lock, allowing the machine to lift large loads without the use of stabilizers. The loader forwarder has a 360-degree continuous rotation closed loop swing system combined with a quick and smooth boom. This provides high productivity and efficiency when loading, stacking and sorting logs or other materials.
The WideRange® drive transmission provides good tractive effort, fast working speeds, and good fuel efficiency without the need to shift gears. When this is combined with low ground pressure and the performance capabilities of the Tigercat designed bogie axles, the performance is impressive. The Tigercat FPT N67 Tier 4f engine, rated at 212 kW (285 hp), allows all of these functions to run simultaneously and provide high productivity. Source
