Overview

Tigercat bunching shears increase the productivity of the entire harvesting system while reducing cost per tonne. Feller buncher productivity and efficiency improves because more trees are cut per cycle, reducing unnecessary machine travel. Skidder productivity and efficiency  improves because the bunches are large, well aligned and easy to pick up.

For pulpwood applications, the bunching shear is a simple, low maintenance, low cost alternative to disc saw felling heads and preferable in rocky or abrasive soil conditions. The 2000 can be fitted to both drive-to-tree and track feller bunchers.

The 2000 is a fast, high capacity bunching shear best suited to pine and eucalyptus plantation harvesting applications.

Cutting capacity

With standard 160 mm (6.5 in) bore cylinder

Softwood: 510 mm (20 in)

Hardwood: 405 mm (16 in)


Key Benefits

  • Cushioned cylinders for long life
  • The industry’s hardest shear blades; the blades can be switched and flipped to balance wear
  • Twin post design with offset pocket for excellent visibility
  • Improves both feller buncher and skidder productivity by increasing number of cut stems per cycle and by laying down tight, parallel aligned skidder bunchers
  • Deep accumulating pocket places the load closer to the machine for improved stability
  • More cutting and less machine travel; the unique two-arm design allows more trees to be stored before stopping to dump the accumulated bunch
