Latest technology on show
“ASIA PACIFIC is a strong and growing market for John Deere forestry machines and it’s the intention of the Deere and Hitachi team at AUSTimber to show customers the benefits of all the latest John Deere technology that makes Deere such a global leader in forestry equipment technology,” says Simon Shackleton, Sales Manager for John Deere Forestry, Asia Pacific and Africa.
A full range of new “game changing” forestry harvesting machines will include a number of both Cut-to-Length and FullTree-Length equipment on static display and also working on two live demonstration sites.
“We encourage customers to visit the John Deere / Hitachi display and come and meet our global team and take the opportunity to discuss our new and exciting products which will be on show at AUSTimber2016, including the new MSeries tracked harvesters and feller bunchers and LSeries skidders with the first models of these products only recently brought into Australia.” There will be the new John Deere 948L skidder, the largest skidder John Deere produce, working along with an 853M feller buncher on the eucalyptus demonstration site. Just across the road in a pine stand attendees will be able to view John Deere’s latest technology regarding CTL equipment, a 1270E eight wheel harvester.
Customers will also be able to view a demonstration of John Deere’s newest forestry equipment fleet management software package “Forestsight Solutions” and test their skills on a John Deere forestry simulator.
Representing each of the three John Deere factories that manufacture forestry equipment, and supporting the local Hitachi Australia sales team, will be 20 John Deere global forestry experts including Product Managers, Engineers and Marketing Personnel.
