Tigercat has recently released the 220E loader with notable improvements, including an upgraded operator’s station and the addition of the Tigercat FPT power plant.
Conforming to Tier 2 and Tier 4 emission requirements, the quick and light-weight 220E is powered by the Tigercat FPT N45 Tier 4f or the Tigercat FPT N67 Tier 2 engine, delivering 125 kW (168 hp).
The totally redesigned operator’s station has a signiﬁcantly improved climate control system along with a number of additional features to improve the operator experience.
The new heavy-duty suspension seat is wider and standard equipped with heating and cooling. The seat has improved adjustability and many of the frequently used rocker switches have been repositioned into the armrest mounted joystick pod for enhanced ergonomics. The climate control system is further enhanced by the addition of window blinds for the front windshield and skylight. Acoustical engineering along with the quiet Tigercat FPT engine contributes to extremely low in-cab noise levels, while the new sound system with Bluetooth audio allows for hands-free calling.
A new main pump and larger hoses to the boom cylinders provide faster boom and swing functions. The hydraulic component layout remains unchanged with hydraulic valves easily accessible underneath the deck plate cover, allowing for clean, easy service access. The updated electrical system incorporates hydraulic pressure sensors that can be monitored on the display in the cab as well as improving fuel economy with an automatic engine idle down feature.
