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.

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.
