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.


Key Benefits

  • Improves both feller buncher and skidder productivity by increasing number of cut stems per cycle and by laying down tight, parallel aligned skidder bunchers
  • More cutting and less machine travel; the unique two-arm design allows more trees to be stored before stopping to dump the accumulated bunch
  • Twin post design with offset pocket for excellent visibility
  • Deep accumulating pocket places the load closer to the machine for improved stability
  • Cushioned cylinders for long life
  • Recessed saw blade and clever guarding reduce the throw angle and deflect chips downward, decreasing saw recovery time
