Overview

Tigercat mulcher carriers offer superior build quality, greater hydraulic efficiency, better operator ergonomics and easier access to components and daily service points than competing mulcher carriers. The result in greater uptime, higher productivity — essential in time sensitive ROW clearing projects.

The 470 mulcher is an agile, low ground pressure machine best suited to tough terrain and sensitive site ROW, pipeline maintenance and exploration projects.

 


Key Benefits

  • Large attachment pump. High flow to the mulching head
  • Closed loop drive system provides optimal balance of speed and tractive effort for high performance and efficiency in extreme terrain
  • Counter-rotate function (CRF). Turn on a dime at the touch of a button
  • Extremely low ground pressure. Low impact in sensitive sites
  • High-lift boom geometry. Improved performance on sloped terrain
  • Efficient, high capacity cooling system with variable pitch fan and automatic reversing cycle
