The Tigercat 1185 eight-wheel drive harvester is now available to Australian operators, Tigercat’s official Australian dealer Onetrak announced recently
E quipped with Tigercat-built bogie axles and a powerful Tigercat ER crane, the premiumquality 34-tonne 1185 sets a new standard for durability and productivity in tough terrain.
Tigercat’s unique WideRange drive system increases working travel speed while delivering extremely powerful tractive effort for high performance in steep terrain and quick in-stand travel on good ground.
The 1185 blends high performance with fuel efficiency through the use of advanced hydraulic circuits.
Dedicated pumps power the drive, harvesting head, crane, fan and cooling circuit functions.
In addition, a closed loop drive system provides excellent performance and response on steep slopes.
A pressure- and flow-controlled piston pump drives the cooling fan, maintaining optimal operating temperatures at the lowest possible fan speed. The crane features Tigercat’s efficient and operator-friendly ER technology.
The hooked profile of the main boom promotes excellent right-side visibility. Not only is the crane efficient but also simple in design, without external parallel linkages. With an extreme duty slew system and 360-degree continuous rotation, the cabin rotates with the crane.
The cabin is spacious with excellent visibility and clear line of sight to the wheels. The curved windshield affords excellent upward visibility and safety, thanks to the latest protective technology.
Operators will find all the creature comforts including a comfortable and highly adjustable climate-controlled seat with a four-point harness and full Bluetooth connectivity.
The 1185 is powered by the Tigercat FPT N67
Tier 2 308hp engine.
