The 480 is a 500-hp class, track-driven mulcher carrier suitable for tough terrain, sensitive site applications and pipeline, exploration and right of way projects.
High production and extremely low ground pressure combine to offer exceptional performance in the most demanding mulching jobs. With a Cummins QSX15 Tier III engine, the 480 is a powerful machine with 440 hp available to the mulching attachment. The machine is compact and maneuverable with a narrow overall width and a light footprint for soft soil conditions.
A highly refined closed loop track drive system propels the carrier and a dedicated pump powers the attachment. The 480 uses heavy duty track frames and a robust mounting system for the oscillating tracks. The efficient, high capacity cooling system uses a variable pitch fan with an automatic reversing cycle.
The machine incorporates high-lift boom geometry for improved performance on uneven terrain. The counter-rotate function or CRF allows the 480 to pivot about its center axis at the touch of a button for quick, effortless “on a dime” turns at the end of a row. All functions including the joystick steering are electronically controlled, allowing for operator customization.
