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.
- 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
