John Deere Improves Fuel Economy on Forestry Swing Machines

New enhancements and update kits demonstrate marked improvements in fuel efficiency

MOLINE, Illinois (December 10, 2013) — John Deere is committed to providing customers with improvements that make both the machine and operator more efficient, and one way is by improving fuel economy on Forestry Swing Machine with an updated pump/management system and fuel economy kit for existing models. When operating in high-power mode, these upgraded machines showed a marked improvement in fuel economy without loss in productivity, which translates to gains for the logger's bottom line.

 

"With fuel prices on the rise, running a fuel-efficient operation is now more important than ever for loggers," said Dave McFarlane, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "The enhancements to our fleet of Swing Machines are a testament to John Deere's dedicated focus to provide powerful equipment that gets the job done in the most efficient manner possible."

 

Swing Machine enhancements will be implemented on all models, including the 2154D, 2454D, 2954D and 3754D. Fuel economy kits are also available to update existing machines manufactured prior to November 15, 2013. For more information, contact your local dealer or visit www.JohnDeere.com.
