Tigercat continues to expand its range of harvesting heads with the new 568, a robust, productive four-wheel-drive harvesting head for roadside processing.
The patented 4WD – 2WD auto-shift drive system provides extra power and positive grip when feeding large trees, fast speed in smaller trees, and full manual control when needed. With Tigercat’s 4-2 drive system, you get speed and powerful feeding all in one. The 568 starts in 4WD, maximizing feed force for faster acceleration and to quickly power through bigger trees. As the load drops, it automatically shifts to 2WD, improving efficiency and increasing feed speed. The system shifts back and forth seamlessly with no operator input required, all while maintaining precise and accurate length measurements.
D5 control system
The 568 harvesting head uses the Tigercat D5 control system. The system allows the operator to monitor lengths, diameters and species in real-time to ensure maximum productivity with a simple and intuitive Tigercat-developed user interface. The Tigercat D5 control system is available in three levels of bucking control and reporting: Tigercat D5 Prio, Tigercat D5 Prio PC and Tigercat D5 Optimization allowing operators to tailor the system to their needs.
