Tigercat has developed a new multi-function hydraulic system and quick-attach boom adapter for its M726E mulcher. The new option enables the machine to be converted quickly from a mulcher to a feller-buncher for felling timber.
Tigercat offers two purpose-built four-wheel drive mulcher carriers for vegetation management and land clearing applications. The M726E is equipped with a 300 hp engine and is designed to carry horizontal drum mulching attachments requiring up to 230 hp. The larger, 415 hp M760 model is a specialized machine for high duty cycle land clearing and right-of-way applications and is fitted to attachments requiring up to 400 hp.
Tigercat offers a track carrier for mulching on the 822C platform. The M822C is powered by a 300 hp engine and is suited for mulching attachments that require up to 200 hp. The track carrier also makes it applicable for job sites in rough terrain, slopes and banks and soft soil conditions.
All Tigercat mulcher carriers are designed to operate in high ambient temperatures and applications where there is a great deal of airborne debris. The machines are equipped with automatic variable speed, hydraulically driven fans with an automatic reversing cycle to clean debris from the coolers.
