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

  • Unique design places smaller stems in the accumulating pocket while centring large diameter trees
  • 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
  • Cushioned cylinders for long life
  • Recessed saw blade and clever guarding reduce the throw angle and deflect chips downward, decreasing saw recovery time
