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 is greater uptime and higher productivity — essential in time-sensitive ROW clearing projects.
The 480B mulcher is built for the toughest terrain, soft soil conditions and the most demanding duty cycles. It is the ideal carrier for large scale clearing and right-of-way projects.
