Canada-based forest machinery manufacturer Tigercat Inc. has announced the release of the E-Series 855 forestry carrier platform with the introduction of an improved cab. The 855E machine platform can be configured as a harvester, feller buncher or shovel logger and is well recognized and field proved in some of the world's toughest forestry applications and climates.
According to Tigercat, the 855 E-Series carriers take the line of sight to the next level with larger side windows, narrower side posts, more cab lights and are equipped with both skyVIEW and rearVIEW camera systems for improved operator visibility, as standard.
Ergonomic design is key to operator comfort. With a redesigned hinge, the front access door now requires a lot less effort when entering and exiting the cab. The electronic control module is now a larger touch screen display on an adjustable mount and frequently used controls have been integrated into the joystick pods for ease of use.
Improved sealing around the exterior of the cab significantly reduces noise levels inside allowing operators to take full advantage of the new Bluetooth sound system with hands-free calling.
