When equipped with the Dedicated Travel System feature, a 330-hp engine option can be selected to further improve the performance and efficiency of the Travel System and all other machine functions as well.
The 853M comes standard equipped with Smooth Boom Control (SBC), allowing machine movements to be controlled more effectively, delivering a smoother experience for the operator and less wear and tear on the machine over time.
Generous tractive effort enables reliable negotiation of difficult or steep terrain, deep snow, and swamps. Long and wide undercarriage maximizes stability in all terrain conditions.
RCS can be tailored to individual skill levels and specific harvesting conditions. Multiple RCS settings can be saved according to individual operator preferences.
Floor-to-ceiling front window, large side windows, skylight, and optional floor window significantly expand the view of the harvesting area and the work at hand.
From small stems to big timber, softwood to hardwood, level or sloped ground, the 853M has a variety of felling attachments that’s designed for your job. Choose among the FR21B, FS22B, FR22B, FR27, FS50, or FR50 to maximize overall production efficiency.
