The FAE PT-175 is a tracked carrier designed for forestry work when there is little space to maneuver anywhere that requires superior agility and efficiency.
Manage wooded areas, create firebreaks, work near power lines, oil and gas pipelines.
The sturdy construction with oscillating undercarriage is the best match for the 140/U mulcher.
The exclusive Sonic system increases mulching efficiency to achieve maximum productivity with minimum fuel consumption.
The engine power and low operating weight of the CAT C4.4 Acert makes it possible to work on steep slopes and soft ground.
The hydraulic system guarantees reliability and efficiency.
The spacious cab is unrivaled when it comes to comfort, ergonomics and operator safety.
The flexibility and reliability of one of the world’s most popular four-cylinder engines.
The Caterpillar C4.4 Tier 4 Final/Stage V engine delivers 173 hp, with reliably superior performance and a global service network.
High-tech body and soul.
An integrated system developed by FAE to ensure maximum performance.
With a network of sensors to monitor key operating parameters, everything in the PT-175 can be easily fine-tuned.
Designed with total operator comfort in mind. ROPS/FOPS/OPS cabs - the industry benchmark. High Lexan™ windows. Ergonomic joysticks. Pneumatic seat. 7” color display to monitor and modify all operating functions.
PT-175 was created with a clear objective in mind: to optimize forestry work. The FAE 140/U/SONIC mulcher helps you easily manage woods and forests and create firebreaks near electric lines, oil and gas pipelines.
Managing steep, soft, uneven ground with little space to maneuver is normal for FAE PT-175.
Longitudinal slopes of 45° and transverse slopes of 32°. High power, low operating weight.
Minimum pressure against the ground: 0.28 kg/cm2.
You can count on the FAE PT-175 engine. The Caterpillar C4.4 Acert four-cylinder is a popular engine, highly respected worldwide. Equipped with twin turbochargers with after cooler, Acert technology and Common Rail injection, this engine delivers an impressive 173 hp. Efficient, reliable, with superb consumption/power ratio. Compliance with the Tier 4 Final/Stage V standard is guaranteed with the combination of diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) technologies.
A combination that maximizes uptime and requires minimal maintenance over time, achieved by passive regeneration that does not require interrupting the work.
The 4.4-liter displacement and a cooling system designed specifically for the FAE PT-175 ensure peak performance in heavy-duty applications and when working in tropical climates.
EFFICIENT, RELIABLE TRANSMISSION
The transmissions designed for the FAE PT-175 are based on two fundamental concepts: technology and integration. Electronically controlled pumps and sensors and a dedicated control unit, working together to deliver maximum performance. The systems are designed to enable the CAT C4.4 Acert engine to operate at optimal rpms at all times.
The FAE PT-175’s hydrostatic transmission also serves to dampen operating loads. This ensures that the carrier and its key components are subjected to less stress, reducing wear and tear. The end result is greater durability than a mechanical transmission.
The FAE PT-175’s integrated load control feature optimizes power management, ensuring that the mulcher always operates at peak power while reducing forward speed as needed.
HEAVY DUTY UNDERCARRIAGE
The FAE PT-175 undercarriage is designed to provide maximum operating performance and reliability, even in the most demanding conditions. Prime quality Berco components. Chains with lifetime lubrication offer longer life than conventional chains as well as greater operator comfort. Solid, reliable dozertype rollers. Oscillating undercarriage technology for superior traction and comfort. Two options available for roller guards to better adapt to different working environments.
Conventional geometry ensures a low center of gravity and provides optimal contact between chain and drive wheel. Two fundamental elements for the best possible work, even on slopes. The FAE PT-175 wheelbase also extends the area over which the load is distributed, which means lower specific pressure against the ground.
The frames of the PT-175 undercarriage are designed to withstand major stresses and make maintenance easier.
A SERIOUSLY COMFORTABLE CAB
The cab of the FAE PT-175 is designed for those who work in extreme conditions. It is ergonomic, soundproof and guarantees optimal visibility, making it an industry benchmark. Joysticks built into the pneumatic suspension seat allow for easy, precise operation of the PT-175. The controls on the side console are distributed to make them user friendly, and the 7” color display keeps the essential carrier parameters in view at all times. ROPS/FOPS/OPS certification meets the highest standards of operator safety, even in the most demanding applications.
The air conditioning system vents located throughout the cabin provide all the comfort the operator needs, in hot or cold weather.
An optional cabin pressurization system is also available. The large, 12-mm thick, impact and scratchresistant
Lexan™ windows provide excellent visibility. Powerful LED work lights offer broad coverage, ensuring precise, safe work in all conditions.
