The Tigercat 480B is a powerful, robust mulcher, able to tackle the toughest terrain with ease, and is now available in Australia, Tigercat announces.

The 480B is equipped with an efficient, high capacity cooling system with a variable speed fan and automatic reversing cycle, a dedicated attachment pump and an efficient closed loop track drive system.

Inside the cab, the operator has ergonomic electronic joysticks and excellent sightlines. The cab interior is quiet, and instrumentation has been placed to optimize productivity. The electronic control system interface uses a high-resolution, 180mm (seven-inch) touch screen.

The 480B is equipped with a comfortable, heated and cooled seat with air-ride suspension. Excellent cab insulation translates to reduced noise levels so operators can take full advantage of the Bluetooth sound system with hands-free calling.

With the counter-rotate function (CRF), the 480B can pivot about its center axis effortlessly "on a dime", for easier turns at the end of a row, says Tigercat. The heavy-duty steel engine enclosure and pre-cleaner guard eliminates the requirement for a rear canopy. All structural components are designed for full-time forest duty.

"We are continually trying to improve efficiencies in order to achieve better fuel economy and direct as much power as possible, no matter what size carrier, to the attachment," says Tigercat’s mulcher carrier product manager Rob Pentesco.

"We are always making sure the robustness of the carrier meets our customers’ expectations. Tough, Reliable, Productive is Tigercat’s philosophy and we always aim to achieve those goals."

The 4061 mulching head housing features reinforced side covers and abrasion resistant skis. The housing is optimized with debris door cylinders mounted internally for protection and contains position references to aid in ski alignment.

Timing belts eliminate belt slip and provide efficient power transfer to the rotor, lowering maintenance time and costs associated with conventional v-belts.

The Tigercat-designed tooth and holder system uses a taper lock interface that requires no torque wrenches, greatly reducing changeover time. The teeth are extremely durable with carbide tips and carbide inserts for increased life, says Tigercat.

Onetrak in conjunction with Tigercat will hold in-forest demonstrations to give contractors and operators a chance to view the 480B and 4061 mulching head working on-site. If you would like to register your interest, please contact your local Onetrak representative or email contact@onetrak.com.au.
