Deere improves fuel efficiency

Dec. 12, 2013 — John Deere is providing improvements to make both their machine and operators more efficient, and one way is by improving fuel economy on their Forestry Swing Machine with an updated pump/management system and fuel economy kit for existing models. When operating in high-power mode, these upgraded machines showed a marked improvement in fuel economy without loss in productivity, which translates to gains for the logger's bottom line.

"With fuel prices on the rise, running a fuel-efficient operation is now more important than ever for loggers," said Dave McFarlane, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry.

Swing Machine enhancements will be implemented on all models, including the 2154D, 2454D, 2954D and 3754D. Fuel economy kits are also available to update existing machines manufactured prior to November 15, 2013.
