The new H424 harvester head replaces the previous, best-selling H414. The H424 has a redesigned look. The changes based on customer feedback improve productivity, ease of service, durability, uptime, measuring accuracy and reduce daily operating costs. This model is also equipped with the new SuperCut 100S saw unit. The H424 harvester head is available for John Deere 1070G, 1170G and 1270G harvesters.

The H424 is a medium-size harvester head designed for later thinning and final felling where the tree diameter at chest height is 150–430 mm. The H424 is also well suited for handling crooked wood and working on slopes. The harvester head’s robust structure, improved hose routing and easy access to service points have convinced customers.

H424 product improvements

2020 11 09 101553The new PEVO valve improves the harvester head’s performance, adjustability and economy compared to its predecessor. Improved hose routing from loader to harvester head and from valve block to feed motors improves the durability of the hoses. The new hinged valve block cover makes daily maintenance easy. Grease points and the saw chain oil tank are also easier to access, and the greasing intervals have been extended compared to before.

The harvester head's backwards tilt angle has been increased by 4°, which improves the grip of the stem in the grapple when feeding backwards and makes it easier to work on slopes. The fixed rear knife has been shortened for easier handling of crooked stems and hardwood. Also the placement of the rear delimbing knives has been changed to improve colour-coding accuracy. A more robust tilt frame for demanding conditions is available.

  • Max. cutting diameter 620 mm
  • Max. feed roller opening 640 mm
  • Feeding force 27 kN
  • Max. feeding speed 4.3-5.3 m/s
  • Weight starting at 1100 kg

New SuperCut 100S saw unit for all John Deere harvester heads.

In 2020, all John Deere harvester heads will have the new SuperCut 100S saw unit. The saw unit’s next-generation chain tensioning unit, automatic chain tensioning, and mechanical bar locking give it added efficiency and reliability. The improved chain release makes it easier to replace the saw chain. The new saw unit enables also a bigger selection in terms of saw motors and saw bars.

John Deere harvester heads are known for their productivity, reliability and measuring accuracy.

John Deere harvester heads are high performance tools that meet the industry’s stringent quality requirements in all working conditions. Harvester head testing is part of John Deere’s product testing process. Each harvester head model has been field-tested for thousands of hours before the start of serial production. John Deere harvester heads are designed and manufactured in Finland.

The new ISO 21876 standard will take effect at the end of 2020, or early 2021 at the latest. The new windows are standard features in John Deere forest machines already starting in March 2020.

logo john deereThe new RENCRAFT® Super Hard Coat (ECE 43R LEVEL L) polycarbonate windows are more durable than the windows previously used. The new windows can better withstand external wear.  The windows’ scratch resistance and ability to withstand chemicals and cleaning solutions is significantly improved. Additionally, the front window of the rotating cabin and the rear window of the forwarder’s fixed cabin are now almost 50% thicker than before. Also the front window of the fixed cabin is thicker than before. The thicker material provides better sound insulation. The cabin will now become an even quieter working environment.

The optical quality of the new windows is excellent. The new, durable coating is created already during the manufacturing process, eliminating the need for a separate coating that causes minor distortions.

The new, more durable windows are standard in all John Deere forest machines starting in March 2020. The change in window material has no cost impact for customers. The windows can also be retrofitted

to all the latest models that have rotating and levelling or fixed cabins.

”The optics of the new window are clearly better, and, as a bonus, the cabin is now even quieter. The new kind of coating enabled by the manufacturing technique and the wear protection it brings is also a significant improvement on the previous ones,” says Marketing Manager Sami Kulmala.

New h212 harvester head for thinnings

The new H212 harvester head has been designed specifically for thinnings. The harvester head’s dimensions give it agility in navigating even dense thinning stands. Delimbing has been optimized for smaller trees, enabling a very high-quality delimbing result. The location and the high-speed cutting of the saw increases productivity and minimizes cutting damage. It has the power and feed speed also for bigger trees. The H212 harvester head is available for John Deere 1070G and 1170G harvesters.

2020 05 14 074200The narrow frame of the H212 harvester head offer excellent visibility to the stem. The harvester head is narrow even when the feed rollers are open, making it easy to work in very dense thinning forests. The long delimbing knives make for an easy grip to the stem. The design of the knives and the location of the feed rollers at the lower end of the frame provide an excellent grip on the stem.

The daily maintenance of the harvester head takes less time than before. The easy daily maintenance targets one point with the harvester head raised.

  • Optimum working area 100-250 mm, maximum opening of the feed rollers 440 mm
  • Feed power 20 kN
  • Highest feed speed 5.4 m/s
  • Weight with rotator and link 850 kg

Excellent bundle-handling characteristics

The H212 harvester head’s frame, tilt, feed roller arms, and the design of the knives increase the efficiency in bundle-handling. The harvester head’s high frame provides support for stem bundles, and the long delimbing knives facilitate in grabbing the stems. The firm grip of the feed rollers located on the lower part of the frame makes it easy to move a bundle of stems upright even in a dense forest.

New SuperCut 100S saw unit for all John Deere harvester heads

Starting in spring 2020, all John Deere harvester heads will have a new SuperCut 100S saw unit. The saw unit’s next-generation chain tightening unit, automatic chain tightening and mechanical bar locking give it added efficiency and reliability. Improved chain release facilitates saw chain replacement. The new saw unit enables also a bigger selection in terms of saw motors and saw bars.

The new customer service centers supporting John Deere’s forest machinery business will open in 2020 in Perth, Scotland; Ockelbo, Sweden; and Laukaa, Finland. The investments will improve the geographical scope of our customer service and the efficiency of customer service.

Construction work on the approx. 9000 m² plot in Perth, Scotland, has already started. The new customer service center will also serve the road construction machinery customers of Wirtgen, a company fully owned by John Deere. The new 1300+ m2 building will house a four-bay machine repair shop, a wash station, a spare parts and accessories store, a spare parts warehouse, a conference room and social facilities for employees. The plot will also have a cold storage and space for new and used machines. This is a growth investment, so customer service will also remain at the current facility in Carlisle, England.

The new customer service center in Ockelbo, Sweden, will replace the previous facility in Alfta. Construction of the new 1250 m² facility will start in June 2019 and will be completed in early 2020. Moving the location to Ockelbo will help the new center to provide service to customers beyond the Alfta area in Sweden. The center will have a four-bay machine repair shop, a wash station, a spare parts and accessories store, a spare parts warehouse, and a conference room and social facilities for employees. The approx. 13,000 m² plot will also have a cold storage and space for new and used machines.

Customer Service Center, Laukaa, FinlandCustomer Service Center, Laukaa, Finland

The plot in Laukaa, Finland, is 10,000 m2, and the customer service center will exceed 1,100 m2. All functions from the current Suolahti site will be moved to Laukaa. The center will also have a four-bay machine repair shop, a wash station, a spare parts and accessories store, a spare parts warehouse, and a conference room and social facilities for employees. There will also be a cold storage and space for new and used machines. Construction of the center has started with the earthmoving work, and the actual construction will begin in autumn 2019.

“The central locations of the new customer service centers and the modern facilities will enable more comprehensive and efficient spare parts, maintenance and training services for our customers. Occupational safety, ergonomics and wellbeing for our own employees have been a priority in the planning of the investments. A better customer experience and higher customer satisfaction will also be visible in our machine sales in these regions,” notes Janne Märkälä, General Manager, Europe Sales Operations.

John Deere closes Chinese plant

logo-john-deereOperations have been indefinitely suspended at the John Deere plant near the Chinese port of Tianjin after huge explosions there last week killed more than 100 people and injured some of the company's 1,300 workers.

The Moline, Illinois-based company did not have an update on the status of employees  injured while at their homes in the area, but said the small number of employees injured at work by flying glass had only minor injuries.

According to a company spokesman, the windows and doors of several John Deere buildings were blown out during the blasts. At least one water main broke, causing damage to the engine works facility and several ceilings showed signs of damage.

Company officials have not been able to return to the facilities and fully assess the damage because a government evacuation order is still in place, the spokesman said.
