Tigercat Releases 850 Processor
Published on: Wednesday 15th January 2020
The Tigercat 850 processor is a purpose–built roadside processor delivering outstanding performance and impressive fuel economy. Designed for high volume roadside processing, the Tigercat 850 offers many advantages over excavator conversions including better service access, higher cooling capacity and processor head optimized hydraulics. The Tigercat FPT N67 engine delivers 159 kW (213 hp) at 2,100 rpm for Tier 2 and Tier 4f emission compliance.
An efficient load sensing hydraulic system allows simultaneous machine and head functionality. The combination of high horsepower and harvester head optimized hydraulics lead to responsive control, quick feed speed and powerful delimbing capability for high productivity. A high capacity swing system with dual swing drives provides ample torque and speed for high performance processing. The powerful, strength-to-weight optimized boom is designed specifically for processing and high stacking.
Operator visibility is unmatched in the quiet, comfortable, ergonomically designed cab. The hooked boom design, and narrow side posts provide excellent righthand side visibility. An integrated cab riser and the rearVIEW camera system contributes to all-around visibility for the operator. Optimally positioned controls and a large touch screen display improve ergonomics and machine monitoring. Reduced noise levels help the operator enjoy the auxiliary audio input port, Bluetooth® audio and hands-free calling.
Service access is unmatched with the ability to step down into the centre of the machine for clear, unobstructed access to the engine and daily service points. Large enclosure doors and a service platform provide easy access to other service points. A large cast counterweight with a swing-out door allows access to the engine from the rear of the machine.
