After thousands of hours of testing, the 803M Tracked Feller Buncher is one rugged and reliable machine. The 9.0 liter engine now produces 25% more power than before providing a completely new level of productivity. Maximize productivity and reduce operator fatigue with the Rapid Cycle System, which combines automated felling head leveling, single button automated felling head arm cycling with single lever boom control. Operate in comfort with a 17% roomier and more comfortable cab that has 44% more window in front of the operator for exceptional visibility. The 803M redefines the meaning of uptime, productivity, and low daily operating costs.
• Engine power has increased significantly — by 25 percent — for superb multifunction performance.
• A variety of boom sets and felling heads can be combined to optimize productivity across a wide range of conditions.
• Longer, wider undercarriage maximizes stability no matter the terrain.
• If you’re working in really big timber or on hills, optional high-torque swing provides increased power, to boost productivity.
• Rapid Cycle System (RCS) now standard, uses a single, easy-to-operate joystick to quickly and simply control all boom functions.
• Up to 45-percent more tractive effort increases capability for negotiating difficult or steep terrain, deep snow, and swamps.
• Rapid Cycle System (RCS) can be tailored to individual skill levels and specific harvesting conditions, from large single-tree harvesting to high-speed, multistem cutting.
• Press a single button to engage RCS mode. Conditions don’t suit the fast, parallel motion of the boom? Turn RCS off with another touch of a button.
• Multiple RCS settings can be saved according to individual operator preferences. Novices may prefer a slower, more methodical pace, while highly skilled pros may want faster response.
• Fully adjustable armrests, including mounted keypads, provide fingertip control of all machine functions. Fully adjustable air-cushioned seat provides exceptional daylong comfort in the climate-controlled cab.
• Floor-to-ceiling front window offers 44-percent-more window area, providing an outstanding view to the cutting area.
• Field-proven boom design is transplanted from our larger 900M- and 900MH-Series models. All booms are stronger and more robust, with thicker plates and larger pins and bushings to ensure long life.
• Fuel-tank capacity has been increased by over 50 percent (to 230 versus 154 gal. on comparably sized machines) to extend intervals between fill-ups, allowing you to run up to 24 hours without refueling.
• Optional undercarriage-mounted toolbox provides convenient storage for tools, additional saw bars, and other spare parts, minimizing trips back to the service truck.
• Easy access to service components helps ensure daily checks and preventative maintenance get done on schedule, minimizing costly repairs down the road.
• Reversing cooling system fan automatically reverses airflow to eject debris from the cooler cores or, if conditions demand more frequent cleaning, simply press a button to actuate the reversing cycle. Variable-speed fan runs only as fast as needed conserving power and fuel.
• 800M- and 800MH-Series machines share many common components — including the engine, undercarriage, booms, and cab — with their 900M- and 900MH-Series counterparts, simplifying maintenance and repairs when needed.
