FT300 Forestry Tractor

Features and Benefits

  • The robust hydraulic system is designed to operate below its rated capacity for extended life of hydraulic components compared to competitive units.
  • A patent-pending self-positioning thrown object deflector helps direct thrown material at a consistent discharge angle, regardless of head position.
  • With a spacious cab - featuring air-ride seating, user-friendly controls, and optimal viewing area supported with a standard rearview camera – operators can focus on production.
  • A center-mounted cooling package is easy to access, and two large hinged doors swing open to expose the engine compartment for maintenance without additional tools. 
  • The externally balanced, ringed rotor helps guide material to the cutting tips for a more clean cutting path while also controlling the depth of cut. Interchangeable tip options allow operators to customize cutting performance to meet their jobsite needs.
  • With the option of either steel or low ground pressure (LGP) tracks, operators can choose which style fits their jobsite needs. With weight of the mulcher head calculated in, the total machine weight is centered on the tracks resulting in even weight distribution and lower ground pressure.
