Tigercat introduces the highly anticipated 850 roadside processor.


The Tigercat 850 processor is a purpose–built roadside forestry processor featuring improved 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 hydraulics optimised for processor heads. The Tigercat FPT N67 engine delivers 159 kW (213 hp) at 2,100 rpm for Tier 2 and Tier 4f emission compliance.

A load sensing hydraulic system allows simultaneous machine and head functionality, while a high capacity swing system with dual swing drives provides ample torque and speed for high performance processing. The strength-to-weight optimised boom is designed specifically for processing and high stacking.

Operator visibility is front-and-centre in the quiet, comfortable, ergonomically designed cab. The hooked boom design, and narrow side posts provide excellent visibility to the right-hand side. 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 easy 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 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.
