New From John Deere: 900 MH-Series Tracked Harvester With Intelligent Boom Control

 

John Deere has released its latest operator assistance control feature, Intelligent Boom Control (IBC), for the 900 MH-series tracked harvester. The development of this model is a result of global collaboration between the John Deere wheeled cut-to-length (CTL) and full-tree forestry teams, aiming to implement IBC’s field proven technology into MH-series of tracked harvesters.

With IBC, operators no longer need to control each independent boom function separately. One joystick moves the boom tip horizontally, while a second guides it vertically, for faster cycle times and more precise control. IBC’s smooth and fluid motion actively dampens functional change of directions, protecting boom structures and increasing wear life. IBC also automatically controls swing speed based on the overall position of the attachment.

IBC allows the operator to focus on controlling the attachment, helping improve efficiency. The controls used for reaching and securing trees for harvest intuitively mirror how the equipment might function if it were the operator’s arm.

IBC is now available on the 953MH and 959MH.
