Tigercat unleashes E-series 845 feller buncher
Canada-based forest machinery manufacturer Tigercat Inc. has released the next generation 845E and L845E track feller bunchers with several new features to promote increased productivity and improved operator comfort. Enhancements include a new operator’s cab, a larger main hydraulic pump, and a longer reach ER boom system.
According to a statement, the next generation 845E and L845E track feller bunchers have been upgraded with the aim of increasing production capacity and improving operator comfort. Enhancements include a new operator’s cab, a larger main hydraulic pump, and a longer reach ER boom system.
In particular, the cab has been redesigned to optimize ergonomics and reduce in-cab noise levels. Redesigned hinge geometry allows the front door to be closed with less effort. The new IQAN MD4 electronic control system interface includes an easy-to-use large colour touch screen for machine monitoring and function adjustment.
The new skyVIEW and rearVIEW camera systems eliminate the need for a skylight while improving operator visibility.
ER boom technology
The 845E boom offers a longer 8,5 m (28 ft) reach and a tighter tuck for better performance in thinning applications. Tigercat’s unique energy-saving ER boom technology, along with the fuel-efficient N67 engine contributes to outstanding productivity and fuel efficiency.
The 845E model can be equipped with a range of Tigercat felling heads including a bunching saw or shear for smaller diameter timber or the single post 5702 felling saw for larger trees and mixed diameter stands.
The larger hydraulic pump on the E-series 845 provides additional power and quicker functioning of the clamp and accumulator arms to maximize productivity in smaller diameter timber. In addition, the 845E can be equipped with the 5185 fixed felling saw for felling, bucking and shovel logging high value and oversize timber.
