Mid-size IT4 harvesters ‒ loaded with power, easy to handle
The agile and powerful John Deere 1070E and 1170E IT4 harvesters are equipped with bigger work pumps for more power and torque in comparison with corresponding Tier-3 models. The 1170E IT4 harvester is equipped with a larger 175 cm³ pump and the 1070E IT4 harvester is equipped with a larger 160 cm³ pump for increased oil flow which enables efficient use of the Processing Power Control (PPC) feature, now also introduced in the new mid-size harvesters. The increased power increases working efficiency and operating comfort. Bigger pumps boost feeding speed and enhance measuring accuracy. Both of these new models are powered by John Deere 6068 PowerTech™ Plus series turbo-charged 6-cylinder 6.8 litre engines. Work is comfortable due to the decreased engine noise and the ergonomic, rotating and levelling cabin that offers excellent visibility.
Processing Power Control system
Processing Power Control (PPC) is another industry-leading innovation from John Deere. PPC comes as standard on all new John Deere harvesters and enhances productivity and fuel economy with three different power levels for different logging conditions. PPC levels range from an energy-saving mode to a boost mode. In energy-saving mode, machine performance is optimized in terms of maximum fuel economy. The middle level optimizes machine performance for operating on normal timber sizes. Boost mode provides full power performance for harvesting exceptionally large and heavy timber. New harvester head models H413 and H415
The H413 harvester head optimises delimbing coverage and quality. The harvester head has been enforced with a new frame structure and new hydraulics boost productivity. Daily maintenance of the harvester head is now simpler and more effortless than ever. The frame structure is slightly longer, which enhances control when felling trees. The new hydraulic valve solution streamlines hydraulic cylinders and motors, which will extend the life of the hoses.
The bigger H415 harvester head is constructed in a very similar manner. It works seamlessly with the new CH9 harvester boom that is tailored to suit the largest 1470E IT4 harvester in particular. The durable and accurate John Deere harvester booms and heads are world class.
To speed up mass and energy wood processing further, the harvester heads can be enhanced with multi-tree handling (MTH) equipment, or the automatic multi-tree handling function of the TimberMatic system can be switched on.8-wheeled 1270E IT4 harvester
At FinnMETKO, John Deere will present an 8-wheel version of its popular 1270E harvester. The 8-wheel option is especially designed for steep slopes and, owing to decreased surface pressure, soft soil applications. This option offers 20% more power and strong Duraxle™ bogie axles with customized balancing gear units for excellent climbing ability and traction. The harvester is very stable, and its high ground clearance and large approach angle guarantee excellent performance in demanding terrain conditions. The levelling and rotating cabin ensures optimal working ergonomics.IBC makes working easy, fast and productive
With the Intelligent Boom Control (IBC) system, the boom is accurate, fast and easy to operate, as the operator now controls the boom tip directly instead of controlling each of the independent boom joint movements separately. By eliminating unnecessary extra movements, this system increases the durability of boom structures and hydraulic cylinders. These features significantly improve an operator's working speed, and boost the productivity of even more skilled operators when loading takes less time than before. For new and less experienced operators, IBC significantly accelerates their learning curve and productivity. IBC is available for John Deere forwarders. It can be tested on the test track at the John Deere stand.The mid-size E-series IT4 forwarders
John Deere 1210E IT4 forwarder has a lot of power and traction, and features improvements to the boom control. 1210E IT4-model has forest-tough bogie axles, enhanced V-groove axle mounts as well as strong frame and middle joint for exceptional uptime throughout the machine’s lifetime.
John Deere 1510E IT4 is one of the strongest forwarders and its capacity and power have been enhanced further with a bigger hydraulic work pump and a stronger engine. As with the 1210E IT4 model, this one also has bogie axles that enhance productivity and uptime, V-groove axle mounts, a strong frame and middle joint. The 1510E IT4 is a combination of excellent transporting features and reliable quality.
Both forwarders feature a new, more durable headboard design that significantly improves the operator's visibility of boom and grapple movements. The good visibility speeds up especially unloading. The cross-sectional area of the 1210E IT4 can be increased to 4.7 m² for the wide load space option, and the load space can be increased up to 5.3 m² on the 1510E IT4 model.
The John Deere 1210E and 1510E IT4 forwarders come with a John Deere 6068 PowerTech™ Plus, turbo-charged, charge air-cooled, 6-cylinder, 6.8 litre engine.
Fixed cabin available for forwarders
As an alternative for rotating and levelling cabins, fixed cabins are now available for E-series forwarders. The panels and seats are the same as on the rotating model, as are the other components and accessories. This facilitates maintenance and the availability of spare parts. The concept is different, but the operator has excellent visibility, and the fixed cabin offers great comfort and ergonomic working environment.
