Construction equipment: Track mulcher and mulching head introduced

construction equipment Tigercat

Construction equipment: Tigercat releases next generation 480B track mulcher and the brand new Tigercat 4061 mulching head as Tigercat's off road industrial product line continues to expand. The Tigercat 480B tackles the toughest terrain with ease and offers superior durability and high uptime for large-scale, time-sensitive right-of-way and site preparation projects.

With a power rating of 411 kW (550 hp) at 1,800 rpm, the Tigercat FPT C13 Tier 4f engine offers quick load response, low operating costs and high power density, combined with excellent fuel economy. Best of all, Tigercat FPT engines are backed by Tigercat warranty and support.

The efficient, responsive closed loop track drive system delivers powerful tractive effort and performance with greater hydraulic effi ciency in challenging terrain. The high-lift boom geometry means high productivity in slopes and gullies.

The cab interior is quiet and instrumentation has been placed to optimize productivity. The electronic control system interface uses a high-resolution, 180 mm (7 in) 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.

4061 MULCHING HEAD
The new mulching head offers excellent durability and reliability in a package ideally suited to the capabilities of the Tigercat 480 and M726 series mulchers.

The 4061 is manufactured to Tigercat’s exacting high standards for robustness and quality. The 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.

Service and maintenance are a snap, maximizing uptime. 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.

Unlike competing mulching heads, the 4061 wear liner requires no welding and the rotor does not need to be removed when servicing. There are also reversible and interchangeable shear bars for quick servicing. In addition, a tapered housing shields debris from potential build-up and easily accessible grease points make daily servicing even more convenient.
