865 Logger

The Tigercat 865 logger is a multi-purpose, no compromise forestry carrier designed for various loading applications as well as roadside processing.

The 865 is purpose-built to eliminate the design compromises found in excavator conversions. The upper frame assembly and undercarriage are designed for forest duty and ease of service.

The F6-152 forest duty undercarriage has excellent tractive effort for mobility on or between decks. The larger footprint F7-162 provides additional stability for heavy timber applications and when working at extended reach.

The large, comfortable rear entry cab has excellent sightline and well designed ergonomics.

One machine. Many jobs.

The 865 has multiple loader configurations with boom options to accommodate various grapples styles with or without a live heel. In addition, the machine can be configured for roadside processing –  the high cab improves performance and operator visibility in high decking applications.

Some of the advantages of the 865 logger over excavator conversions include higher cooling capacity, a better operating environment, stronger undercarriage components and extremely efficient and task-optimized hydraulic circuits. The result is higher production, uptime and fuel efficiency for lower operating cost per tonne.

Grapple Options

Customize the 865 to specific loading applications with a variety of grapple styles including bunching, power clam and butt-n-top grapples, as well as grapple saws.

Merchandising Loader

Equipped with a live heel boom, along with the optional pull-through delimber and bar saw slasher hydraulic package, the 865 can be configured as a high performance merchandising loader. This package is well suited to typical southern US full tree harvesting systems.

Open Access

Component layout and access sets a new standard with a tilt-up roof enclosure, drop-down service platform and a rear access door integrated into the cast counterweight.

Tigercat power. Tigercat support.

The 865 logger is Tigercat FPT Tier 2 or Tier 4f powered. Tier 4f conforms to the latest emissions standards in North America and Europe. With the Tier 2 engine configuration, Tigercat brings the benefits of Tigercat power and support to harvesting professionals around the world.
