John Deere unveils intuitive boom tip control for forwarders at Elmia Wood 2013
The world’s largest international forestry fair, Elmia Wood, took place in the forests south of Jönköping, Sweden. The event presented visitors with exclusive access to the latest products and innovations from within the global forestry industry.
According to John Deere’s Information Manager Dieter Reinisch, “The event was the vitamin injection the whole forestry industry needed.”
Elmia Wood 2013 proved the obvious choice to unveil Deere’s Intelligent Boom Control (IBC) system – a major breakthrough in forwarder technology which makes work easier, faster and more productive.
Intuitive boom tip control has been on the forestry machine feature wish list for 30 years – now exclusively available from John Deere.
IBC makes the boom operation accurate, fast and easy as the operator now directly controls the boom tip instead of controlling independent boom joint movement. When extra movements are eliminated, IBC will also increase the durability of boom structures and hydraulic cylinders.
In test machines, this new control system has significantly increased even experienced operators’ working speed. The productivity of unseasoned operators has improved enormously. IBC provides it all in one complete package – more productivity with the best possible fuel economy and boom lifetime.
John Deere also unveiled Processing Power Control – another industry leading innovation that enhances productivity and fuel economy in harvesters.
Congratulations to John Deere for claiming the Innovation Award for their new IBC system. We look forward to continued product innovations and industry-first technologies in the future.
