Use John Deere's leading innovations not only to make operating easier and more precise, but also to increase production and help to retain the best operators.
IBC makes it easier to maneuver the harvesting head. Operators no longer need to control each independent boom joint separately. Simply steer the harvester head towards the target, and IBC does the rest, automatically controlling all boom movements based on the grapple's location.
Available for 1270G and 1470G harvester models with select harvesting heads, these features can make the operator’s work easier, improve productivity, and protect the machine from damage.

Saw assist helps to prevent sawing towards the cabin.
