Granby, Quebec—Specially developed for the most difficult tasks such as heavy clearing, vegetation management around power lines and pipe lines, creation of firebreaks and re-cultivation tasks in professional plantation and forestry, the Raptor 800 perfectly combines productivity and reliability. Everything is designed for durability, ease of maintenance and a high level of efficiency, down to the tiniest detail.
“After a very intensive, test phase under the toughest conditions, during which the Raptor 800 faced challenges such as clearing in standing stock, removing logging residue and pulling up rootstock, the Raptor 800 performed convincingly”, explained Daniel Chaput, Regional Manager for the Raptor 800.

AHWI-PRINOTH patented innovation
The new patented Powerbelt system that are driving the mulcher head increases the amount of power transferred from the engine to the mulcher head. Thanks to this new drive system which will result significant productivity increase and cost savings. The mulcher is connected to the tracked vehicle via a 4-point lifting gear and the attachment can be raised higher than most of mechanically driven mulcher heads, even at full load. The system therefore offers the ability to face every work situation in the best possible way. As well as excellent maneuverability, the mulcher achieves very good quality shredding and even tackles hard wood effortlessly, due to the combination of the large diameter of the drum and the arrangement of the teeth.
The newly developed delta tracks provide comfort for the driver and reduces vibration. In addition, the delta tracks provide an excellent self-cleaning effect and enables the vehicle to drive through water up to 20 inches deep.
The Raptor 800 offers the highest level of comfort and ergonomics. The safe and spacious driver's cabin ensures a great visibility, excellent air-conditioning and provides ideal working conditions.
