Overview

The 5000 bunching shear is for drive-to-tree and track feller bunchers and is best suited to pine and eucalyptus plantations. The 5000 series saw achieves optimal production in uniform timber profiles sized under 40 cm (16 in) diameter.

Tigercat bunching saws 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.
