HUDDIG 1260T – The first the pre-series machine with Tigon Technology

In 2021, the first pre-series machines with Tigon Technology, named HUDDIG 1260T, were rolled out to several selected customers in Sweden.

Extensive tests in the companies' daily operations showed the system's efficiency, flexibility, and reliability. The system and the machine could be further sharpened through constructive discussions with the customers for the upcoming series-produced models.

What do the test drivers say?

When driving TIGON, I feel in total control, I can put the power where I need it, and it’s quiet, yet powerful.


- Sandra Åberg, Test driver of Huddig Tigon

My first impression of TIGON is that it’s remarkably quiet. That makes it easy to talk with the people outside, and you have total control of your surroundings. It’s unbeatable.


- Alexander Matsson, Test driver of Huddig Tigon

Benefits of Tigon Technology

Ikon 100% Diff

100% Differential

100% four-wheel drive with individual wheel control provides optimal accessibility and control on, for example, slippery surfaces.
Ikon 130%

130% Power peaks

Instantaneous Power Peak of up to 130% provides extra power when needed.
Ikon Bränsle

Top efficiency

Optimized efficiency and energy recovery at all times results in an excellent operational economy.
Ikon Plugin


Plug-in-option for stationary work and charging the machine from the main electrical network. Quick charge to full power in 1 hour or trickle charge overnight.
Ikon 2H

2 Hours of power

Up to 2 hours excavating or 20 km of travel on battery power alone. The battery recharges during work using the diesel engine.
Ikon Mute


The HUDDIG 1260T can operate silently and without any emissions in EV mode. This means that the machine can work in new places, like indoors and in residential areas by night.
Ikon EV Ny


The EV-mode allows the machine to work on 100% battery power without any loss in functionality or power.
Ikon ECO Ny


The ECO-mode powers the machine as environmentally friendly as possible with a mix of diesel and electricity.
Ikon PWR


POWER-mode produces extra power to the machine as environmentally friendly as possible with a mix of diesel and electricity.

Discover TIGON Technology

Our revolutionary hybrid system – Tigon Technology – allows you to work fully electrically or in conjunction with the powerful diesel engine. A machine with Tigon Technology can operate entirely on electric power for up to two hours without compromising strength, torque or precision.

Brake system  
Transport brakes 2-circuit braking system with two accumulators. Wet disc brakes on all wheels, proportionally actuated with hydraulic servo.
Backup brake

One of the two circuits of the service brake or the parking brake.

Service brake Automatic engagement of transport brake when stationary (automatic function can be disengaged).

Parking brake

Mechanical negative brake, integrated in each hub reduction. Hydraulic release of the parking brake occurs when one of the transmission’s two gears is engaged.


Steering system  

Hydrostatic Orbitrol control system with dual cylinders in the centre pivot

Steering angle ±32°
Frame oscillation ±8°
