Committed to providing the forestry industry with powerful and reliable equipment solutions, John Deere is rolling out upgrades to its FR22B and FR24B felling heads. Compatible with select M-Series tracked feller bunchers, the updated FR22B and FR24B models have been redesigned to increase durability and extend the life of the wrist and head.

“The forestry industry is challenging and pushes equipment to the limit to get the job done, making it important for manufacturers to provide reliable solutions designed for logging applications,” said Jim O’Halloran, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction and Forestry. “Our new FR22B and FR24B Felling Heads provide just that – a reliable felling solution designed with the operator’s needs in mind.”

The new felling heads feature improved flow capability, increased hydraulic hose size and routing, and updated ring gear and frame welds, all resulting in increased durability.
