Tigercat LX830E feller buncher on site.

Tigercat has released the LX830E track feller buncher with the latest features and upgrades, including a redesigned debris management system and an upgraded operator’s seat.

The LX830E is a powerful and stable leveling feller buncher with a compact tail swing and a high performance closed loop track drive system, well suited to steep slope thinning and final felling applications.

The updated E-series cab includes a new parallel action air ride seat with integrated heating and cooling. Also, the reclining seat is fully adjustable with seat angle and seat extension adjustment. A wider seat cushion and lumbar support have been integrated to provide more comfort for the operator.

The HVAC controls feature a new infinitely variable fan speed control, which can be adjusted on the control panel or the machine control system touchscreen. Also, multiple netted storage locations have been added to the cab to keep items secure.

A redesigned engine enclosure provides improved roof access for clearing debris. Furthermore, a boom slider reduces debris build-up in hard-to-reach areas.

Another addition to Tigercat’s LX830E track feller buncher is a hot shutdown feature. This allows the turbo to sufficiently cool before stopping the engine, improving turbo life. Also, a larger, spring-assisted pump cover allows for easier service access to the hydraulic pump area. Finally, hydraulic enhancements include quicker anti-stall response, consistent anti-cavitation flow and improved heat rejection.
