Tigercat has added a new model to its expanding line of mulcher carriers. The new 470 mulcher is equipped with the Tigercat FPT C87 Tier 4i 245-kW (328-hp) engine. It is narrow and agile with extremely low ground pressure, rated at 20,9 kPa (3 psi). The 470 is best suited for tough terrain and sensitive site rights of way, pipeline maintenance and oil and gas exploration projects.
The 470 is equipped with an efficient, high capacity cooling system with a variable speed fan and automatic reversing cycle, a dedicated attachment pump and an efficient closed loop track drive system. Inside the cab, the operator has ergonomic electronic joystick steering with CRF (counter-rotate function) for “turning on a dime” at the touch of a button. The heavy duty steel engine enclosure and precleaner guard eliminates the requirement for a rear canopy. All structural components are designed for full time forest duty.
For more than 20 years, Tigercat has designed and built forestry equipment with increasingly complex hydraulic and electronic systems that are able to survive some of the harshest operating environments on the planet. This knowledge and experience has resulted in a line of mulchers with more reliability, higher uptime, a longer useful life and greater productivity and efficiency than competing products.
