Overview

The LS855E shovel logger is a quick, nimble and powerful carrier suited to felling, pre-bunching and shovel logging in steep terrain. The LS855E can be equipped with a grapple, or the Tigercat 5195 directional felling head for felling or shovel logging with one machine.

Multi-purpose

The LS855E is an extremely versatile carrier that can improve productivity and streamlines processes at several points within the overall harvesting system. The machine can cost effectively forward wood to roadside in steep or wet soil up to distances of 80-100 m (260-330 ft). It can be strategically located in challenging parts of the cut block to forward trees to the skidder or fell and bunch for a yarding system. It can also organize stems and decks for the processor at roadside, improving both skidder and processor productivity.

Built for the job

Unlike excavator-based shovel loggers with add-on forestry packages, the LS855E is purpose-built for heavy duty forestry applications. The efficient hydraulic system is optimized for shovel logging and felling with a bar saw head.


Key Benefits

  • Comfortable cab interior with clear sightlines. Ergonomic positioning of controls and display screens
  • Energy recovery swing system. Closed loop system recovers energy as swing decelerates
  • Dedicated swing pump. Reserves main hydraulic pump flow for boom and attachment functions, increasing speed and productivity
  • ER boom technology® improves fuel efficiency, reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity
  • Extreme duty leveling undercarriage for excellent stability on steep slopes
  • Clamshell-style roof enclosure with swing-out doors. Excellent access to major components and daily service points
