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.

The 470 is Tigercat FPT Tier 4 powered, conforming to the latest emissions standards in North America and Europe.


Key Benefits

  • Tigercat FPT C87 engine with Tier 4f emissions compliance – clean, powerful and efficient; fully supported by Tigercat
  • Extremely low ground pressure 20,9 kPa (3 psi)
  • Large, dedicated attachment pump
  • Efficient, high capacity cooling system with variable pitch fan and automatic reversing cycle
  • Counter-rotate function (CRF) for ‘on a dime’ at the touch of a button
  • Highly refined closed loop track drive system
  • High-lift boom geometry for improved performance on sloped terrain
  • Ergonomic electronic joystick steering
  • Heavy duty steel engine enclosure, exhaust and precleaner guard; no need for a visibility impairing canopy


The Truth about Tier 4f
Tigercat FPT engines meet stringent Tier 4 emission levels without the need for variable geometry turbochargers, an EGR system, a higher capacity cooling system, an intake throttle body or a diesel particulate filter. The engine series offers improved reliability and lower long-term maintenance costs. Most of the new emission equipment is found in the exhaust or after-treatment system. The key is the selective catalyst reduction (SCR) which converts the harmful components of the exhaust gas stream into water, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.
