TIGERCAT has unveiled its new 875E Logger, which introduces several new features, including an updated operator station, two undercarriage options, and various grapple configurations.

The 875E logger is a multi-purpose carrier with two boom options for loading or processing applications. The machine can be equipped with the Tigercat FPT N67 Non-certified, Tier 4F or Stage V engine, producing 210 kW (282 hp).

The undercarriage is designed and built to withstand rigorous, full-time forest-duty applications.

Two options are available: the F7-150 undercarriage is standard, while the larger-footprint F7-162 undercarriage provides additional stability for heavy timber applications.

The 875E can be configured as a loader equipped with various power-clam, butt-’n’-top, live-heel, pulpwood and log-grapple options. The carrier can also be configured as a high-capacity processor capable of running large harvesting heads in demanding duty cycles.

The cabin has a new operator’s seat with built-in heating, with controls now integrated into both sides of the joystick pods, eliminating the need for any bolt-on control pods. The optimally positioned controls and a large touchscreen display are said to improve ergonomics and machine monitoring. Reduced in-cab noise levels help the operator enjoy the auxiliary audio input port, Bluetooth audio and hands-free calling. Additional new features include the standard equipped rearVIEW camera system, emergency stop button, and a key FOB to turn on exterior lights remotely when entering the cab in the dark.

According to Tigercat, advantages of the 875E over excavator conversions include better service access, higher cooling capacity, a better operating environment, more robust undercarriage components and extremely efficient hydraulic circuits – resulting in higher production, uptime and fuel efficiency.
