John Deere receives Good Design award

Feb. 26, 2018 - The John Deere 3756G Forestry Swing Machine has been recognized with a Good Design award for its design excellence and innovation. The Good Design awards program is known as the oldest, most prestigious design award, and is organized annually by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies.

“We are incredibly honoured to have received a Good Design award for the 3756G Swing Machine,” said Tom Budan, vice-president of worldwide forestry at John Deere. “This award verifies that we not only created a productive and powerful piece of equipment, but also the innovation of the swing machine design. Innovation is one of our core principles, and this recognition solidifies John Deere as the world leader in the forestry industry.”

A panel of 14 designers, architects, journalists and critics identified the 3756G Swing Machine as a “rugged, efficient new player” in the John Deere Forestry line-up. The machine’s productivity capabilities and power in the toughest conditions is what caught the judges’ attention, as well as the improved uptime, reliability and durability.

The 3756G features a high rise cab with floor-mounted windows. The larger windows in the new cab improve visibility for the operator when maneuvering over difficult ground conditions. The rear-entry cab promotes safe and easy entry and exit, further showcasing the customer-first design that is at the forefront of all John Deere machinery.

Additionally, the 3756G cab is climate-controlled and includes fatigue-reducing features such as ergonomic controls and isolation mounts to boost operator productivity during long work days.

The 3756G Swing Machine is not the only piece of John Deere equipment to be recognized. The 310E Articulated Dump Truck, the 4-Track 9RX Series Tractors and the Round Baler Family also received a Good Design award.
