Care­fully crafted Har­vesters cru­cial to healthy bot­tom line

Australian Forests and Timber - - Harvesters -

Pro­duc­tiv­ity and up­time are cru­cial to a healthy bot­tom line, and the John Deere full port­fo­lio of har­vesters have been care­fully crafted to get the job done. Pow­ered by John Deere technology and dealer sup­port, the M-Se­ries tracked har­vesters and G-Se­ries wheeled har­vesters fea­ture in­no­va­tions to save op­er­a­tors time and money.

G-Se­ries Har­vesters

The G-Se­ries ma­chines have been de­signed with the op­er­a­tor in mind. Boast­ing a range of pow­er­ful engine op­tions from Tier2 to fi­nal Tier4, the 1270G and 1470G har­vesters de­liver 10 per­cent lower fuel con­sump­tion from pre­vi­ous mod­els. The in­creased out­put is par­tic­u­larly no­table in the 1270G 6-wheel ma­chine, which now has the same power as the 1270G 8-wheel ma­chine (200 kW ver­sus 17 kW). The torque has also in­creased by as much as 17 per­cent in the 6-wheel ma­chine and 5 per­cent in the 8-wheel ma­chine. Equipped with a com­pletely new con­trol sys­tem, the Tim­ber­matic™ H-16, fea­tures user-friendly con­trol mod­ules and wiring har­nesses.

The noise level in the G-Model is much lower and the engine runs much more ef­fi­ciently even at lower RPMs. The engine has more power and doesn’t stall, not even when pro­cess­ing, driv­ing and boom move­ments are done at the same time. Also note­wor­thy is that the boom can be con­trolled even more ac­cu­rately than with pre­vi­ous model ma­chines, thanks to the new CAN de­sign and new con­trollers.

The Pro­cess­ing Power Con­trol (PPC) sys­tem in the 1270G and 1470G har­vesters has three dif­fer­ent power lev­els to choose from based on tree size. The PPC sys­tem an­tic­i­pates the engine load and re­sponds with the right power in­crease, which in turn im­proves fuel econ­omy.

The cabin of the G-se­ries har­vesters is de­signed to max­i­mize op­er­a­tor com­fort. The cabin ad­justs au­to­mat­i­cally to boom move­ments while the au­to­matic lev­el­ing func­tions ab­sorb ter­rain changes. This offers sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment in ma­chine pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­duces vi­bra­tion by as much as 50 per­cent dur­ing op­er­a­tion.

1270G Har­vester

The John Deere 1270G con­sumes sig­nif­i­cantly less fuel than its pre­de­ces­sor, but boasts even more power. The in­creased out­put is par­tic­u­larly large in the 6-wheel ma­chine, which now has the same power as the 8-wheel ma­chine – 200 kW in­stead of the pre­vi­ous 170 kW.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the 1270G fea­tures new con­trol mod­ules and wiring har­nesses. The high-qual­ity con­nec­tors re­duce dis­rup­tions and the new mod­ules im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity on the job­site. The com­bi­na­tion of the 1270G with the H415 har­vest­ing head has shown no­table im­prove­ments in har­vest­ing ef­fi­ciency. And the ma­chine comes with PPC – a sim­ple and easyto-use so­lu­tion to balance power and fuel econ­omy in dif­fer­ent log­ging con­di­tions.

1470G Har­vester

The 1470G is the big­gest har­vester model in the lineup. Boast­ing many of the pop­u­lar fea­tures found in the 1270G model, the 1470G is equipped with a big­ger CH9 boom and a dif­fer­ent front frame, tires and bo­gie axles. Like the 1270G, op­er­a­tors of the 1470G have praised the ma­chine’s power and torque im­prove­ments, cit­ing con­sis­tent engine per­for­mance with­out drops in RPMs.

The geo­met­ric de­sign on the 1470G CH9 boom pro­vides in­creased sta­bil­ity and offers ex­cel­lent ac­cu­racy and ma­neu­ver­abil­ity. The op­er­a­tion of the CH9 boom has been made more ef­fi­cient with the open loop Twin Pump
