Overview

The 575 harvesting head is productive and reliable in a variety of demanding applications and tree profiles. An extremely durable all-around harvester head, it is well suited to in-stand harvesting, roadside processing, multi-stem pulpwood processing and eucalyptus debarking.

With independent knife arms, the 575 harvesting head excels in tough timber with large limbs and poor stem form. Optional timed knives are available for easier picking in roadside processing applications.

Tigercat’s patented Autoshift™ drive system provides extra power and positive grip when feeding large trees, fast speed in smaller trees, and full manual control when required. The 575 starts in 3WD, maximizing feed force for faster acceleration and to quickly power through bigger trees. As the load drops, it automatically shifts to 2WD, improving efficiency and increasing feed speed. The system shifts back and forth seamlessly with no operator input required, all while maintaining precise and accurate length measurements.


Key Benefits

  • Larger diameter hoses and larger capacity valves than similar class heads to match the greater hydraulic flow and power of Tigercat harvester carriers
  • Robust design, high quality components for high duty cycles and long life
  • Precise diameter and length measuring
  • Efficient hydraulics for high performance, efficiency and improved carrier component life

LH822D with 575 bushfire salvage, Australia
This LH822D is equipped with the 575 harvesting head. This machine was destined to showcase at AUSTimber 2020 but unfortunately never made it due to COVID-19. This unit has the shorter 8.2 m (27 ft) boom option for better stability and lift capacity in larger trees. It is working in the Green Hills region of southern NSW State Forests where approximately 52,000 hectares of plantation Radiata pine was burned by bushfires earlier this year. A huge thank you to P & T Lonergan, G & J Groves Pty Ltd, and Oldina Logging for running the machine demo for us, and also to FCNSW for allowing the demo during these challenging times. Onetrak’s Tumut branch has worked hard to get this demo organized. Thank you Onetrak. Download in HD
