High per­for­mance in plan­ta­tion thin­ning and steep ter­rain

Australian Forests and Timber - - Harvesters -

Tiger­cat’s LH822D har­vester is a pow­er­ful, zero tail­swing car­rier suited to steep ter­rain and is well suited to high per­for­mance in plan­ta­tion thin­ning, se­lec­tive felling in natural stands and fi­nal felling ap­pli­ca­tions. Its tight tuck boom ge­om­e­try min­i­mizes resid­ual stand dam­age in thin­ning ap­pli­ca­tions.

Pur­pose-built for se­vere for­est duty, the LH822D offers per­for­mance and ura­bil­ity ad­van­tages over ex­ca­va­tor con­ver­sions. The durable de­sign and con­struc­tion starts with the Tiger­cat-built for­est duty un­der­car­riage and large di­am­e­ter swing bear­ing. The up­per as­sem­bly is built on a thick, one­piece turntable. All weld­ments are fab­ri­cated from high qual­ity steel to re­sis­tant im­pact.

The FH400 lev­el­ling un­der­car­riage has long track frames, a wide stance car­body and su­per duty lev­el­ling com­po­nents. It all leads to rock-solid sta­bil­ity, poise and op­er­a­tor com­fort on steep slopes.

The com­bi­na­tion of high horse­power and ef­fi­cient har­vester head op­ti­mized hy­draulics pro­vide the op­er­a­tor with re­spon­sive con­trol, quick feed speed and pow­er­ful de­limb­ing ca­pa­bil­ity for high per­for­mance and pro­duc­tiv­ity.
