Overview

Similar to Tigercat bunching saws, the 5500 felling saw uses a two-arm configuration combined with an offset pocket. To accommodate larger timber and maintain machine balance, the pocket is shallower and closer to centre.

The 5500 series felling saw is available for drive-to-tree feller bunchers and enhances versatility in mixed and natural stands. The 5500 is also an excellent choice for contractors requiring the flexibility required to move between thinning and final fell jobs.


Key Benefits

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