High performance in plantation thinning and steep terrain
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.
ER boom technology® improves fuel efficiency, reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity.
Super-duty Tigercat-built FH400 forestry undercarriage.
Extreme duty levelling system – massive pins and cylinders and thick steel plate throughout.
High capacity cooling system – automatic variable speed for improved fuel efficiency; automatic reversing cycle to purge dust and debris.
Large front-entry cab - floor to ceiling front windshield with side door access to expansive area behind the seat.
Excellent access major components – far superior to competing zero tail-swing machines.
