I wouldn't be surprised if Jim Irving owns one of these for his 200 acre plantations. :D

Just venting this morning, will do so on this forum without profanity,  believe me profanity  abounds here this morning. Tigercat has to be the worst machine manufacturer I have ever dealt with. 620D rear axle failure. Parts to repair are unavailable.  There is a replacement that will require days worth of modification to install.  What a joke.

the woodstock plant is 35 or so minutes from me , skidder plant is in Cambridge so an hour from me . One thing I will say is I went to their head office which is in Brantford to talk about a couple TC skidders up north and I ended up talking to the head guy of TC, he told me everything the guys selling the machines didnot on what was done to the machines , I found him to be a very stand up guy and they must be selling lots of machines cause one of the trucking companies that ships their machines is just around the corner from me and I see alot of new stuff heading done the road

So here is my TC story.  The first Tcs were built for the southern market. These feller bunches were the best thing we had ever seen.  The cylinders were second to none. The hydraulic oil stayed cool.  Common parts were used across different models. They hardly used parts.  Parts sales are big aspect of the equipment manufacturing business.   IMO Tigercat realised this and also realised that they were not selling many parts.  It started with the cylinders the new and improved cylinders were cheaper made and it shows. On of drive line components with zero parts availability, radiator mounts the size of silver dollars  I guess it is just business and the goal should be to grow any business and increase profits. Again IMO they did this two fold by taking the money out of the machine and forcing complete component replacement on their customers.  I guess I am just disappointed with the direction they took.

Every founder eventually gets replaced with "performance based" stock option executives and their bean counter friends. It'll make ya sick what they do for a new swimming pool or car for the mistress.

It's funny how an imminently qualified person, especially in the fields most of us on here are familiar with, can draw so little attention on a job application. Then you happen in to the right person and they are begging you to come work for them🤷🏽‍♂️
