New stan­dard for for­ward­ing heavy loads over tough ter­rain

Australian Forests and Timber - - Forest Machine -

JOHN DEERE’S cutto-Length, Joen­suu fac­tory in Fin­land has pro­duced in ex­cess of 11, 000 John Deere branded wheeled forestry har­vest­ing ma­chines and be­fore that pro­duced the glob­ally renowned Tim­ber­jack wheeled har­vesters and for­warders. In to­tal the fac­tory has man­u­fac­tured nearly 30,000 units. To­day, the fac­tory pro­duces the full range E&G Se­ries John Deere for­warders of which two mod­els are shipped to Aus­tralia and New Zealand, the 1510G and 1910E.

The most pow­er­ful for­warder ever built by Deere, the 1910E sets a new stan­dard for for­ward­ing heavy loads over dif­fi­cult ter­rain. Boast­ing al­most 250 hp and a trac­tive ef­fort of 220 kN, the 1910E is the nat­u­ral choice for those en­coun­ter­ing steep slopes and large tim­ber which is ef­fort­lessly han­dled by the Deere CF8 loader. And, of course, com­fort is guar­an­teed by the rev­o­lu­tion­ary op­er­a­tor’s sta­tion which au­to­mat­i­cally lev­els and ro­tates en­sur­ing faster load cy­cles, but if pre­ferred the durable fixed cabin re­mains an op­tion.

The 1510G for­warder fea­tures im­prove­ments to the en­gine, cabin er­gonomics, con­trol sys­tem, pow­er­train and boom and again of­fers ei­ther the lev­el­ling and ro­tat­ing cabin or fixed cab ver­sion. A larger 180-cm³ work pump, larger drive mo­tor with 209 hp, to­gether with im­proved boom con­trol en­sure your pro­duc­tiv­ity day in day out. Ben­e­fit­ing from in­creased power and trac­tive ef­fort the 1510G boasts all the at­tributes you would ex­pect from a mar­ket lead­ing for­warder. A pow­er­ful yet ef­fi­cient John Deere 6068 Pow­erTech Plus, 6.8L en­gine de­liv­er­ing 220hp and high trac­tive force of 185kN com­bined with a smooth pow­er­ful boom and of course, the new rev­o­lu­tion­ary op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ment adds up to im­proved re­li­a­bil­ity, pro­duc­tiv­ity and lower op­er­at­ing costs.

Adap­tive driv­e­line con­trol is a new, unique fea­ture avail­able only for John Deere G-Se­ries mid-size for­warders. The soft­ware­based con­trol sys­tem im­proves the driv­abil­ity and pro­duc­tiv­ity of the G-Se­ries for­warders. The op­er­a­tor se­lects the de­sired RPM set­ting (Eco, Nor­mal, Power) for the op­er­at­ing con­di­tions, and the sys­tem au­to­mat­i­cally ad­justs the en­gine’s RPMs to cor­re­spond with the en­gine load and keeps the en­gine’s RPMs steady also dur­ing high loads.

Dur­ing high-load sit­u­a­tions, the new driv­e­line con­trol en­sures that the diesel en­gine runs smoothly and uses the avail­able max­i­mum trac­tive force ef­fi­ciently. Also the re­sponse of the drive pedal and frame steer­ing have been im­proved with smart elec­tronic fil­ter­ing.

These mar­ket lead­ing for­warders are now packed with ex­clu­sive John Deere fea­tures to en­hance your pro­duc­tiv­ity even more.

John Deere con­trol their own des­tiny with en­gine tech­nol­ogy. The only sup­plier of CTL ma­chines to man­u­fac­ture their own en­gines en­sur­ing max­i­mum per­for­mance from your for­warder, and other forestry ma­chines, com­bined with ex­cep­tional fuel econ­omy.

Soon to be launched in Aus­tralia and New Zealand and op­tional on both the 1510G and 1910E, is John Deere’s ex­clu­sive In­tel­li­gent Boom Con­trol, IBC. Since its in­tro­duc­tion in 2013 IBC has only been avail­able on the mid-size for­warders. As an ex­am­ple of IBC’s im­pact on the mar­ket 80% of the Scan­di­na­vian cus­tomers opt for IBC for their for­warder

With the IBC func­tion, the op­er­a­tor no longer needs to con­trol each in­de­pen­dent boom joint move­ment sep­a­rately. In­tel­li­gent Boom Con­trol is an ex­clu­sive John Deere in­no­va­tion which not only makes the boom op­er­a­tion fast, easy and ac­cu­rate, but most im­por­tantly in­creases the pro­duc­tion and helps to at­tract and re­tain the best op­er­a­tors.

An­other ex­clu­sive to John Deere is JDLink which is a ma­chine and fleet man­age­ment telem­at­ics sys­tem de­signed to re­motely con­nect ma­chine op­er­a­tors, man­agers and ma­chine own­ers as well as ser­vice per­son­nel to their for­est ma­chines.

JDLink data is trans­ferred through MTG (Mod­u­lar Telem­at­ics Gate­way) and mo­bile phone con­nec­tion. In ar­eas where there is not mo­bile phone cov­er­age a satel­lite con­nec­tion can be al­ter­na­tively used. The JDLink main screen gives a good un­der­stand­ing of how the ma­chine is per­form­ing right away.
