    I had a JPV video pop up on youtube a couple days ago. Deere 60G on marsh tracks and a powerpack.

    I cannot find any tigercat specs for pump flows anywhere. Only that there is a main pump and saw pump and they are both variable displacement piston pumps. I can only find the CC/Rev for the timberpro machines. Hard to say what the flow is from that b/c the pump may be over/under driven.

    Edit: Decided I should do that math. At 2200rpm:
    main: 84 gpm or 101 gpm
    saw: 34 gpm
    The track and swing drives use there own dedicated pumps.

    When we were looking to a Timberpro with a JP Skidmore head they require a minimum of 80 gpm to run them which was an issue for Timberpro till they added another pump. The only one I know of that flows enough off the showroom floor is a Barko 240 or 260 they run mulcher on them as well as the Skidmore head.
