Tigercat to Debut New Steep Slope Machine at OLC 2024

At the 2024 Oregon Logging Conference, Tigercat will debut a prototype machine that will further advance steep slope harvesting. Based on the immensely popular and successful 855E platform, the LS857 shovel logger represents a reimagining by Tigercat designers of what a steep slope carrier should look like.

The result is a machine with more leveling capability, superior cable management in winch assisted applications, and a series of design enhancements including increased boom lift and improvements to service access. The switch to in-tank hydraulic filters improves filtration and extends service intervals, and the shape of the fuel tank increases useable volume.

The LS857 appearing at OLC will also be equipped with Tigercat’s new live heel feller-director boom set. This new boom system is the best of all worlds with nearly 11 m (36 ft) reach, a live heel for added utility, and the versatile and highly productive 5195 directional felling saw pinned to the end of it.

Find out a whole lot more at the quickly approaching OLC show, February 22-24. Tigercat management, designers and dealer representatives will all be on hand to answer questions and show you around the new machine.
