John Deere continues to lead the forestry industry in innovative technologies and powerful machines with the introduction of new E-Series wheeled harvesters in the European market that meet European and U.S. emissions standards requirements. The 1270E and 1470E IT4 (Interim Tier 4) models, specifically, are now equipped with new features and enhancements that give operators more power, greater productivity and higher uptime, as well as maintain low daily operating costs.

"Innovation is at the heart of John Deere, and productivity remains at the forefront of the company's commitment to providing contractors the equipment they need to get the job done faster and more efficiently," said Pekka Leppänen, Product Marketing Manager for wheeled harvesters. "The 1270E and 1470E are now more powerful than ever, while retaining the same smooth, stable operating environment."

John Deere 1270E and 1470E IT4 harvesters feature an advanced hydraulic power solution that utilizes two open loop pumps - giving operators highly efficient, simultaneous steering and increased boom and wood-processing control.

The hydraulic power solution includes a new power management feature that anticipates the engine load and responds with an appropriate power surge for improved fuel economy and total productivity, ultimately helping to reduce daily operating costs. Overall hydraulic system features electric fill pumps for fuel and hydraulic oils, and an off-line hydraulic filtering and centralized hydraulic pressure check points and lubrication system for easy maintenance.

New TimberMaticTM H-12 Control System is featured with a configurable user interface. The User Interface can be modified to meet each operators needs by selecting visible the functions and adjustments which are needed for each application or operator. This simplifies navigating through the system and will help to focus for the job at hand. TimberMaticTM H-12 also includes shortcut keys, operator specific adjustments, interactive selections that help synchronizing operating parameters and multimedia help for easy access to operating and maintenance instructions. The recently launched Sequence Control for feeding and cutting makes tree processing fast, easy and more productive.

As part of John Deere's commitment to providing customers the right solution at the right time to meet their needs, the 1270E and 1470E IT4 harvesters are now equipped with a fuel-efficient and powerful John Deere 6090 PowerTechTM Plus engine. The 6-cylinder, 9.0 liter engine is turbocharged, delivering high torque at low RPM. Service access to the engine is easier than ever before with the power tilting of engine and rear hoods.

Additionally, the exclusive John Deere TimberLinkTM monitoring system - an integrated suite of information services for optimizing equipment and total productivity - now features an operator report with even more detailed differences with built-in information to other harvester operators working under similar conditions. The system also provides the operator with individual guidance for working method development.

The JDLinkTM machine and fleet management system is designed to remotely connect machine owners and service personnel to their equipment by providing real-time alerts and machine information needed, such as location, utilization, fuel consumption and maintenance data.

JDLinkTM also enables automatic engine software updating and improved service support.

With JDLinkTM, the TimberMaticTM control system and forest machine control modules transmit machine information through a wireless MTG (Modular Telematics Gateway) and a cellular connection to the JDLinkTM server. An optional satellite connection is available for machines working at sites where a cellular signal is not consistently available.

John Deere's integrated and proven IT4 solution for best fluid economy

John Deere's solution is centered on cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) in a "closed loop" control system that precisely mixes exhaust gas with incoming fresh air to lower the engine's peak combustion temperature, thereby reducing nitrogen oxide emissions. This approach is proven, provides the best total fluid economy and is less costly than alternative solutions. EGR doesn't require the added cost of a second fluid to operate, allowing operators to use the equipment the same way they always have. The John Deere EGR system supports the development of an exhaust gas after-treatment device that consists of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) to further reduce PM.

"John Deere is dedicated to being a long-term partner with contractors - the success and profitability of an equipment owner are a matter of honor for us," Janne Märkälä, Manager, Strategic Marketing, Europe, said. "Our ambition is to offer solutions to support our customers'

businesses by making their work more productive and efficient."
