John Deere Introduces Mobile Hydraulics and Circular Saw Options on 437D Knuckleboom Loaders

Long awaited features contributes to higher productivity and increased uptime

MOLINE, Illinois (February 6, 2014) — John Deere's Knuckleboom Loaders are strong, fast and reliable, day after day, and with new machine configurations, including Mobile Hydraulics and Circle Saw options, the 437D is now more flexible than ever before. These new options expand the capabilities of John Deere's current 437D Knuckleboom Loader by allowing loggers to power a circle saw, self-propelled trailer, or both.

 

Circle-saw hydraulics enable loggers to run a circle-saw attachment and quickly cross cut numerous stems to length. The mobile hydraulics option accommodates self-propelled trailers, allowing operators to easily move the Knuckleboom Loaders around the jobsite on their own.

 

"At John Deere, our goal is to provide today's loggers with the flexibility they need to keep their operations running. We added the Mobile Hydraulics and Circle Saw options so our customers can use Knuckleboom Loaders to their fullest potential, and keep their other machines productive," said Cliff Caudill, Manager, Product Marketing, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "These options make our 437D Knuckleboom Loaders, which are already known for their durability, extremely versatile forest machines."
