John Deere announces its new large-class directional felling head.
With the continued growth of the steep slope market and the movement from manual felling in mind, John Deere announces its new large-class directional felling head, the FL100. The FL100 model provides customers with a larger, more durable directional felling head solution. John Deere customers are continuing to tackle more challenging terrain, and they wanted to provide reliable, durable equipment that is designed to meet their unique needs. John Deere provides a purpose-built equipment for these operations and allows owners of the FL100 to efficiently and safely fell in both unique steep slopes and traditional felling applications.
The robust, durable design of the new FL100 makes it ideal for steep slope shoveling and traditional felling applications. Featuring increased grip strength, grapple capacity and shoveling performance, the FL100’s grapple arm effectively handles both small and extra-large timber. The increased durability of the FL100 reduces potential downtime in tough conditions, while allowing good access to maintenance and service points.
Factory installed on the new John Deere 959ML Shovel Logger/Directional Feller, the FL100 offers the ideal solution for felling and manoeuvring timber in steep slope applications. Source
