High horsepower for precision clean-up: The 760B

In the wheeled category, the 760B mulcher takes the lead as the largest wheeled mulcher, boasting a 420kW (569hp) class carrier. Ideal for silviculture site preparation and post-harvest clean-up, this model achieves quick working speeds and offers a wide swath for high production. Equipped with Tigercat’s FPT engine, the 760B also showcases the boom float system, ensuring that the mulching head automatically follows terrain contours, ensuring precision in tough terrains, slopes, and gullies.

The 760B mulcher’s design features a durable Tigercat construction, a heavy-duty front chassis and boom system, and Tigercat-designed axles, transmission, and pump drive gearbox for proven reliability. Operator convenience is evident in the design: large doors for easy access to daily service points, and a quiet, climate-controlled operator’s station. The standard rear-view camera system further enhances the operator experience and site safety.

Consistency across the range: Tigercat mulching heads

The mulchers are equipped with Tigercat’s 4061-30 mulching heads. These heads, boasting a width of up to 3m, are belt-driven with twin drive motors, variable displacement, replaceable teeth, and wear liners throughout. This ensures the performance, uptime, and confidence required for large-scale right-of-way and site preparation applications, as well as silviculture site preparation work and stump grinding.

Tigercat is committed to meeting the evolving needs of the land management industry. The M726G, M480B, and 760B models bring enhanced capabilities, operator comfort, and efficiency to the forefront, setting the standard for mulching machinery in Australia and beyond.
