TIGERCAT has added to its mulcher line-up with the release of the 760B mulcher and the 4061-30 mulching head.

The new 760B is a 550 hp class mulcher carrier that shares major components with the field-proven and similarly classed Tigercat 480B track-driven mulcher, as well as the popular M726G wheel-driven mulcher.

The 760B was designed primarily for silviculture applications. Forestry companies require the capability to efficiently clean up residual post-harvest forest debris and grind stumps to ground level. The 760B has been designed to meet this requirement. The machine will also find application in large-scale land clearing and ROW projects.

In stable, well-drained soil types, a high-horsepower wheel-driven machine has many advantages including quicker travel speeds, lower operating costs and the ability to run a wide mulching head for improved coverage and wider swaths, increasing quality and productivity. With that in mind, Tigercat has also designed a 3-metre-wide mulching head to complement the new carrier. The new 4061-30 mulching head is based on the original Tigercat 2.5-m 4061, with several updates and enhancements. The 2.5-m 4061 will be rebranded as the 4061-25 when similar updates are introduced early this year.

The 760B will be standard equipped with boom float, LogOn (Tigercat’s wifi-based machine monitoring system), ground-level fuelling and Tigercat’s WideRange transmission. The operator’s station was designed with operator comfort in mind, with a climate-controlled seat, Bluetooth audio connectivity and ergonomic controls.

Tigercat mulcher carriers offer exceptional build quality, hydraulic efficiency and operator ergonomics to provide higher productivity.
