The continued growth of the steep-slope market is opening new opportunities for loggers. Factory-installed on the John Deere 959ML Shovel Logger, our new FL100 Directional Felling Head meets loggers’ demand for a larger, more durable solution. Ideal for felling and maneuvering timber on challenging terrain, the FL100 delivers outstanding grapple strength, arm durability, and rotate/tilt power. Unique long-arm geometry and a large-capacity bar saw allow the FL100 to cut and handle everything from small to extra-large timber, ranging from 100 mm (4.3 in.) to 1 m (39.3 in.). Exceptional durability combined with simplified routine and periodic maintenance helps increase uptime.
