John Deere Adds High-Speed Felling Head Option to J-Series Tracked Feller Bunchers

New optional felling head improves cutting speed to boost productivity

MOLINE, Illinois (September 27, 2011) — John Deere's new FR21B high-rotation felling head, available on its 700J-Series Tracked Feller Bunchers, provides faster cutting speeds to help loggers be even more productive.


"Loggers everywhere are always looking for new ways to harvest more trees per shift, and we're working to meet those needs," said Neil Harber, product marketing manager, John Deere Feller Bunchers. "This new felling head option will help them spend less time tracking and more time cutting."


The new FR21B high-rotation felling head is available on both the 753J and the 759J Series models. A Deere-designed high-rotation wrist delivers best-in-class accumulation capacity among medium sized disk-saw felling heads, enabling loggers to cut more trees and track less often. It also provides improved tree holding and tree alignment, and it features easy service access to further improve productivity.


With their large cutting swaths, advanced hydraulic systems and cabs designed for maximum operator productivity, John Deere's compact J-Series Tracked Feller Bunchers are ideal choices for tight or steep-sloped logging. These new options enhance J-Series benefits to maximize logger productivity.
