MOLINE, Illinois (April 3, 2012) — Today, John Deere announces the addition of a 9.0-liter John Deere PowerTech™ Plus 6090H Engine to its 700-Series Tracked Feller Bunchers and 700-Series Tracked Harvesters, replacing the existing 8.1-liter engine. The 9.0-liter engine is smart and reliable, featuring an electronically controlled high-pressure common rail fuel system to provide maximum power and fuel economy.
"Tough conditions in the woods call for a powerful, durable engine with proven design and technology that can be used across multiple product lines," said Neil Harber, product marketing manager, John Deere Forestry. "The large-displacement engine provides the power loggers need to get the job done quickly and efficiently, while using the least amount of fuel necessary."
The 9.0-liter engine delivers 241 horsepower at peak power, giving loggers maximum productivity and uptime, shift after shift. An extended, 500-hour engine oil service cycle, paired with extended filter capabilities, helps to lower daily operating costs.
With their large cutting swaths, advanced hydraulic systems and cabs designed for maximum operator productivity, John Deere's compact 700-Series Tracked Feller Bunchers and Tracked Harvesters are ideal choices for tight or steep-sloped logging. The new 9.0-liter engine enhances 700-Series benefits to maximize logger productivity.
