tigercatmulcherNovember 20, 2013, Brantford, Ont. – Tigercat has added a
new model to its expanding line of mulcher carriers. The new 470 mulcher is
equipped with the Tigercat FPT C87 Tier 4i 245 kW (328 hp) engine. It is narrow
and agile with extremely low ground pressure, rated at 20,9 kPa (3 psi). The
470 is best suited to tough terrain and sensitive site ROW.

The 470 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 joystick steering with CRF
(counter-rotate function) for turning on a dime at the touch of a button. The
heavy-duty steel engine enclosure and precleaner guard eliminates the
requirement for a rear canopy. All structural components are designed for full
time forest duty.

For over two decades Tigercat has designed and built
forestry equipment with increasingly complex hydraulic and electronic systems
that are able to survive some of the harshest operating environments on the
planet. This knowledge and experience has resulted in a line of mulchers with
more reliability, higher uptime, a longer useful life and greater productivity
and efficiency than competing products.
