John Deere: Monster of the Forest

December 8, 2010

 by Machinefinder

The John Deere Construction and Forestry Division was established in the mid-1950′s, back then called the Industrial Equipment Division. Deere began producing forestry machines in earnest at that time, but in reality, Deere products have been working in the woods since the early part of the last century. Today’s tough-but-smart machines can cut an entire tree into precisely measured sections in a matter of seconds. After rapidly sawing the tree from the base, the processing head keeps hold, dropping the tree parallel to the ground then quickly pulling it through, delimbing and cutting to desired length. It’s the very latest technology for an age-old profession.
