The 880 series logger from Tigercat is a multi-purpose forestry carrier that can be configured for loading, shovel logging or processing applications.
The 880E is powered by the Tigercat FPT N67 engine, producing 230 kW (308 hp), the machine introduces several new features including an updated operator’s station and various grapple configurations to tailor the machine to specific needs. The F7-163 undercarriage is designed and built to withstand rigorous, full-time forest duty with exceptional stability for heavy timber applications.
The spacious cabin has a new heated operator’s seat. Controls are integrated into both sides of the joystick pods, eliminating the need for any bolt-on control pods. The optimally positioned controls and large machine control system touchscreen interface improve ergonomics and machine monitoring. The quiet interior helps the operator enjoy the auxiliary audio input port, Bluetooth audio and hands-free calling. Additional new features include a standard equipped rear view camera system, emergency stop button and a key fob to turn on exterior lights remotely when entering the cab in the dark.
The 880E can be configured as a loader equipped with various power clam, butt-n-top and log grapple options. Equipped with a live heel boom system, the 880E is a highly capable shovel logger with excellent stability, tractive effort and swing torque. The carrier can also be configured as a high-capacity processor capable of running large harvesting heads in demanding duty cycles.
Some of the many advantages of the 880E over excavator conversions include better service access, higher cooling capacity, a better operating environment with superior sightlines, more robust undercarriage components and extremely efficient hydraulic circuits. The result is higher production, uptime and fuel efficiency.
