Plantation thinning is a demanding, high cycle application requiring intensive machine travel. The 718E feller buncher is very well suited to the challenge. It is extremely durable with proven reliability, very high machine availability and low maintenance costs. The compact design and clear sight lines allow the operator to easily manoeuvre, minimizing damage and maximizing the value of the remaining stand while maintaing high productivity levels.

The structural quality and longevity of Tigercat drive-to-tree feller bunters means that the machines command higher resale values than competing brands — another reason to choose Tigercat for all your felling requirements.
