John Deere brought two new G-Series wheeled harvester models, the 1170G and 1070G, to their store. Their new medium-sized machines give loggers the power and accuracy they need for logging jobs. The harvesters also provide a more comfortable operator station that helps loggers continue with their work all day long.

“The introduction of the 1070G and 1170G wheeled harvesters provides our customers with even more powerful and innovative solutions,”

Said Sakari Suuriniemi, product marketing manager for John Deere.

“When developing the latest G-Series models, we listened to our customers and implemented changes that make their jobs easier including improvements to operator comfort and the incorporation of IBC technology.” [1]

The 1170G

The 1170G has better stability and improved maneuverability to best help loggers with their jobs. It comes in either six or eight wheel sizes.

1170G model is IBC, a unique, state-of-the-art boom control system developed by John Deere. Using the system, the IBC sensors can detect the positioning of the harvester head, adjusting the trajectory of the boom in one continuous, efficient motion. [2]

The 1070G

Whereas, the 1070G is a bit smaller and more compact than the 1170G. It can efficiently work in dense growth or rough terrain.

The 1070G harvester is suited for fragile terrain and thinning applications. Compact and easy to maneuver, the 1070G can operate in dense growth, and the wide tires and balanced frame protect the terrain from damage [3]
