First John Deere 1910g forwarder is delivered to a swedish customer
Stora Enso Timber in Sweden takes delivery of the very first John Deere 1910G
The conditions in the central and northern parts of Sweden are ideal for large forwarders, so it’s no wonder that the previous model, John Deere 1910E, has enjoyed big sales success in those areas. Likewise, it comes as no surprise that the very first John Deere 1910G rolling out of serial production was delivered to Stora Enso Timber in the Hällefors district. The first impressions of the forwarder operators Peter and Alexander Östling, both from Frederiksberg in southern Dalarna, are extremely positive.
“It is a superb forwarder,” says Peter Östling, who can compare the new model with its 1910E and 1710D predecessors. “The crane is very strong, yet it moves smoothly. A grappleful of timber is no match to this loader. The rotating and leveling cabin is highly appreciated by all operators. I could never imagine going back to a fixed cabin,” says Peter Östling. “The machine is clearly stronger than the 1910E. It feels like the new forwarder would be able to handle more than it actually needs to,” continues Alexander Östling.
High power, big load capacity and a highly fuel-efficient Final Tier 4 engine
With a 19-ton load rating, the 1910G is the biggest forwarder in John Deere’s forwarder model range. Designed to haul big loads over long distances, it performs at a high level even in challenging terrain and on steep slopes. The key features of the 1910G are its high power rating and big load capacity. The cross-sectional area of the wide load space has been increased from its 1910E predecessor, and the new headboard provides excellent visibility to the load space. The CF8 boom is strong and it moves smoothly and seamlessly. The optional Intelligent Boom Control makes boom handling simple and fast, increasing productivity by as much as a full load per day.
The 1910G forwarder features a 9.0-liter John Deere Powertech™ Final Tier 4/Stage IV emissioncompliant engine. The advancements in John Deere engine technology enable fuel consumption of the 1910G to remain at a level similar to its predecessor. At the same time, the engine’s power has been boosted to 200 kW (up by 7.5%) and torque to 1315 Nm (up by 21%). The John Deere 1910G also features many enhancements in hydraulics, automation and front frame. The drive hydraulics have been increased, and the machine boasts a tractive force of 230 kN (up by 4.5%). The CAN bus system is simple, and the TimberMatic F-16 control system is more effective and easy to use. Structural changes, like the lighter belly plate, make servicing easier.
