Overview

The 5300 bunching saw boosts feller buncher productivity in smaller diameter plantation wood under 405 mm (16 in). It has greater accumulating capacity than the 5000 bunching saw but the added weight of the additional trees and extra steel in the structure means that the 5300 is only suited to the 87oC series track carriers. 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

  • Twin post design with offset pocket for excellent visibility
  • Deep accumulating pocket places the load closer to the machine for improved stability
  • Optimal chip deflection. Quick blade recovery, chips are discharged downward
  • Convenient lubrication points for quick maintenance routines
  • Built to last. Cushioned cylinders and heavy duty saw drive system
