Benefits of Choosing a Cat® Forest Machine 

Comfort, power, and fuel-efficiency are what make Cat equipment the top logging forest machines in the industry.

It's Powerful

When you choose a Cat forest machine, you know you're getting uncompromised strength and unmatched performance. Every model varies, depending on what you want out of your equipment, but every Cat tracked forest machine promises the following features:

  • Strong swinging power, even when moving logs uphill
  • Unbeatable stability and traction on steep ground
  • Powerful control and performance on rugged, rocky, and slick terrain
  • Ability to handle heavy, long logs with ease
  • No stuttering, stalling, or performance hiccups to interrupt the workday
  • Minimal movement inside the cab when swinging and processing
  • Fast performance and powerful navigation to complete tasks quickly
  • Enhanced hydraulics and an optimized engine for maximum performance
  • Additional built-in safety and technology features for even more efficiency and ease-of-use
  • Durable construction for a long-lasting investment that holds up to all types of projects and work conditions

Upgrading and replacing parts is also easy, thanks to our extensive inventory of Caterpillar parts and attachments. Thompson Tractor equipment management services can help you get even more life out of your investment by helping you increase your productivity and uptime while keeping costs low.

It's Comfortable

Forest machine operators spend long hours in the cab of their machine, moving and felling trees on slopes, sometimes in extreme temperatures. Cat forest machines have comfortable operator cabs and a clear line of vision to see the job at hand. The seat is cushioned with convenient armrests and heating and cooling, so operators can stay alert and productive throughout the entire shift. Wide tracked machines promote a more stable operation, minimizing any jarring movements or excessive noise inside the cab. Even when swinging heavy logs, operators experience little to no rocking while seated.

It's Fuel Efficient

One of the best parts of choosing a Cat machine is that you get all of the power and performance without excessive fuel costs. Our forest machine fuel tank service refill capacities range from around 108.3 gallons to 261.4 gallons and outperform many other machines on the market with less fuel required. A fuel-efficient machine also means less time spent stopping on the job to refill the tank and less environmental impact.
