More Power, Better Stability & Increased Tractive Effort
Engine power has increased significantly – by 25 percent for superb multifunction performance. Longer, wider undercarriage maximizes stability no matter the terrain. Up to 45 percent more tractive effort increases capability for negotiating difficult or steep terrain, deep snow, and swamps.
Rapid Cycle System
RCS, now standard, uses a single, easy-to-operate joystick to quickly and simply control all boom functions. This dramatically reduces operator fatigue while increasing efficiency and productivity. RCS can be tailored to individual skill levels and specific harvesting conditions, from large single-tree harvesting to high-speed, multistem cutting.
Closed-Loop Hydrostatic Drive
Boost multi-functioning even more, particularly on slopes and in rough terrain. Adjust priority between track drive and other hydraulic functions to match site conditions and your operator style or preference.
Operate In Comfort
The new operator station was designed by loggers for loggers. It’s roomier and more comfortable, with more ergonomically designed controls – fully adjustable armrests, including mounted keypads, providing fingertip control of all machine functions. Fully adjustable air-cushioned seat provides exceptional daylong comfort in the climate-controlled cab. And the view has to be seen to be believed – 44 percent more window area, providing an outstanding view of the cutting area.
Robust Booms/Felling-Head Combinations
Field-proven boom design is transplanted from our larger 900M- and 900MH Series models. All booms are stronger and more robust, with thicker plates and larger pins and bushings to ensure long life. A variety of boom sets and felling heads can be combined to optimize productivity across a wide range of conditions.
Larger Fuel Tanks
Fuel-tank capacity has been increased by over 50 percent (230 vs. 154 gal. on comparably sized machines) to extend intervals between fill-ups, allowing you to run up to 24 hours without refueling.
Easy access to service components helps ensure daily checks and preventative maintenance gets done on schedule, minimizing costly repairs down the road. Hydraulic reversing fan automatically reverses airflow to eject debris from the cooler cores, conserving power and fuel. Variable-speed fan runs only as fast as needed, or if conditions demand more frequent cleaning, simply press a button to actuate the reversing cycle.
Rapid Cycle System
New optional RCS uses a single, easy-to-operate joystick to quickly and simply control all boom functions. This dramatically reduces operator fatigue while increasing efficiency and productivity. RCS can be tailored to individual skill levels and specific harvesting conditions, form large single-tree harvesting to high-speed, multi-stem cutting.
Longer, wider undercarriage maximizes stability in all terrain conditions.
Robust Boom-Set / Attachment Combinations Provide More Swing Torque
Robust boom sets with thick plates and larger pins and bushings bolster reliability and help ensure long life. A variety of felling and harvesting heads can be combined to suit a wide variety of applications. Swing torque has increased up to 13 percent on the MH-Series Harvesters, providing more power to produce productivity.
Improved Cutting Swath
The 900M- and MH-Series maintain the improvements introduced on the 900K-Series machines, including a 30 percent increase in cutting swath, from 3 to 4 m (10 to 13 ft.), on the standard boom, and by eight percent, to almost a foot, on the harvester boom. For more cuts with less machine movement.
Go Bigger. See More. Do More.
Operators will find their comfort zones and be more productive in the roomier operator station. Controls are ergonomically designed. Fully adjustable armrests, including mounted keypads in the harvesters, provide fingertip control of all machine functions. Optional fully adjustable, suspension seat provides exceptional day long comfort in the climate-controlled cab. And the view has to be seen to be believed – 22 percent more window area provides an outstanding view to the cutting area.
