What are the Benefits of the John Deere MH-Series Tracked Forestry Harvesters?

There are several benefits associated with the John Deere MH-Series Tracked Forestry Harvesters. These forestry harvesters are known for boosting productivity and efficiency through a range of forward-thinking technologies and options. Let’s take a closer look at some of the specific features customers can expect to see when they purchase an MH-Series tracked forestry harvester from John Deere.

Extended Stick Option

The 800MH model has an extended stick option for longer reach. This minimizes the number of cut trails on the job and ultimately boosts efficiency for both machine and operator.

Multiple Boom-Set/Attachment Combinations

A wide array of boom sets, as well as felling and harvesting attachments, can be used with the John Deere MH-Series Tracked Forestry Harvester models. This array of attachments helps operators stay safe and productive, regardless of their work conditions and environment.

Dual Swing System

With the dual swing system, operators can boost power and performance, even in the most demanding condition, increasing productivity and efficiency.

Strong Tractive Effort

Because of the strong tractive effort of the MH-Series Tracked Forestry Harvesters, operators have a heightened ability to work through everything from deep snow to swamps.

Wide Undercarriage

The wide undercarriage of the MH-Series Tracked Forestry Harvesters provides more stability and balance, regardless of the terrain.

Smooth Boom Control (SBC)

Machine movements can be controlled with ease, thanks to the SBC of these tracked forestry harvesters. The SBC feature promotes minimal wear and tear on the equipment as well, creating a longer lifespan and more useful hours for each machine.

Intelligent Boom Control

With Intelligent Boom Control (IBC), the harvester head can be easily controlled, with no need to manage each independent boom joint separately.
