Cat and Epsilon collaborate

Posted By Equipment World Staff On May 19, 2012 @ 7:00 am In Construction News | No Comments

Caterpillar Forest Products [1] has entered into a marketing agreement with Palfinger [2] to distribute a line of knuckleboom self-loaders produced by Epsilon under the brand name Prentice/Epsilon. The line will include multiple models and will be marketed through select distributors experienced with truck-mounted loaders.

Distributors for the Prentice/Epsilon line will be selected based on their technical knowledge of self-loaders and their experience with mounting them. A typical distributor would represent a truck manufacturer, have facilities for mounting loaders and stocking parts and have a dedicated loader sales staff.

The Prentice/Epsilon self-loader line features two types: the Z-boom, which folds up to save space on the trailer, and the L-boom, a standard boom. Various lift capacities and operational speeds are available within each type. The Prentice 2124 self-loader is also still available. It has a standard 22 foot boom and 2,962 pound lift capacity at full reach.

The marketing agreement for self-loaders is the second collaboration between Epsilon and Caterpillar Forest Products. Epsilon also produces the loader for the 20-ton Cat 584HD forwarder and will continue to supply loaders for other Cat cut-to-length forestry equipment.
