Watch "25", a documentary by Tigercat [VIDEO]
Celebrating their 25th anniversary, this film explores the importance of the prototype 726 feller buncher, the machine that started it all and launched a company that would impact the business of harvesting timber around the world.
I remember when Tigercat
was founded in 1992. That was the same year I began working full time at My Little Salesman. As I grew in my knowledge of the industry, I watched this brand grow and make its place in the forestry industry with its core product--the 726 feller buncher. This drive-to-tree design made an impact on the industry by improving durability and reliability thereby improving production for logging operations.
The units are designed and built in Ontario, Canada by people who had a dream and an approach that gives them an edge and allows them to be more than just an equipment company. Their approach helps their customers know they are building a legacy, not just a unit to sell. That legacy is measured out in board-feet and the connection a man has with his passion for his work. Their legacy is, and will be, one of innovation that connects to the operators needs and changes that improve the lives of loggers around the world.
That quick, powerful machine changed that industry 25 years ago and became known for its durability and long operating life in full-time forestry and logging operations. Today it is joined by a full line of forestry equipment that includes tree-length and cut-to-length feller buncher machines and a full line of skidders, loaders, and logging attachments.
On their 25th anniversary, Tigercat makes yet another splash in the forestry industry with an amazing film showcasing their history of innovation and connection to the customer--families of loggers around the world. If you have ever been curious about how forestry machines are created, want to know more about Tigercat or just want to watch a movie about our industry that is engaging, exciting and makes you feel proud of what you do, this is a great video to watch. So, I invite you to join me and watch “25
”, a film about Tigercat's commitment, sacrifice, and being more to your customers than just a manufacturer, but a true partner in their success.
