To meet the evolving demands of its forestry customers, John Deere has announced that it will now offer a 330-horsepower option for the 853M Tracked Feller Buncher and the 853MH Tracked Harvester. Both machines come equipped with the optional Dedicated Travel System feature, which provides hydraulic functionality.
“We know that machine performance is critical for our customers, and we strive to find new solutions that further enhance operation, even when working in challenging conditions,” said Jim O’Halloran, product marketing manager, John Deere. “This new horsepower option on the 853M and 853MH further enhances the functionality of the Dedicated Travel System, ensuring our machinery always surpasses expectations. Now, operators will have the option to further improve overall productivity and efficiency on their job site.”
In addition to hydraulic functionality, the Dedicated Travel System offers independent hydraulic power and performance to the swing, boom, and attachments. Overall, the efficiency of the machine is increased, primarily during heavy multifunctioning.
The previously mentioned horsepower update adds customer-driven features that are found on the M-Series and MH-Series machines. The operator station has floor-to-ceiling windows for maximum visibility, as well as ergonomically designed controls. The Rapid Cycle System gives operators joystick control of all boom functions as well.
