Cabin comfort is a productivity factor. The cabin of a John Deere forest machine is a comfortable and ergonomic work environment. The cabin is available as fixed or rotating and levelling version.
The levelling and rotating cabin helps the operator to maintain the correct working posture to prevent stress on the back and shoulder areas. The operator can sit upright even on uneven terrain, and the cabin can be rotated in all directions to face the work area. The cabin has more legroom in front and the seat has two different height settings. The proven and efficient vibration absorption improves the working conditions further. Leveling and rotating functions are an option in harvesters. The cabin is fixed if these options are not chosen.
Fixed cabin for forwarders is a completely different structure. One advantage of the fixed cabin for forwarders is the low centre of gravity, which provides a steady feel to the seat. The big windows offer good visibility in every direction and also close to the machine and its tires. The cabin has rubber mountings that dampen vibration. The noise level in the fixed cabin for forwarders is low and matches that of the leveling and rotating cabin.
For meal breaks, the cabins feature a mini oven and refrigerator.
The cabin’s interior materials were chosen with ease of cleaning in mind. The leather-like material on the interior pillars is easy to clean. The neoprene wiper blades are more durable than natural rubber blades.
The ergonomic seat, air conditioning and heating, sun visors and sun blinds, and side widow wipers add to cabin comfort. Plenty of light is needed during dark hours, so the positioning of the lights has been continuously improved to enhance visibility during the autumn and winter.
The Smooth Boom Control software addition to John Deere forest machines improves boom movements, making the machine operating more effective, accurate and comfortable.
SBC gives a better feel of the boom
This innovative software filters sudden movements from the levers, creating more accurate boom handling, and enabling operating at a faster speed. Controlling of the boom with the SBC system feels much smoother and more precise in the operator’s hand.
The speed of the boom can be increased at least 10–15 per cent without compromising machine handling. SBC system brings precision and smoothness to work as the motions are linear and more finely integrated. Additionally, there is much less vibration and jerking that is transferred to the cab. A boom with SBC doesn’t jerk – not even when working at the machine’s maximum reach range.
SBC is a standard feature in 810E and is also available to previous E-Series machines with a special field kit option.
