Deere Forestry 759G Track Feller Buncher
The next generation of leveling feller buncher, the Deere Forestry 759G, provides productivity in every application, from thinning in small timber to final felling in large timber. The 759G is powered by a Deere model 6081H, 241- hp, 8.1-liter Tier II engine that provides 4.8 percent more horsepower at 2,000 rpm. The 759G delivers heavier and stronger structural components, adjustable side clearance of links, improved serviceability and lubrication, heavy guarding for all critical components, and an improved rotary manifold for increased reliability and durability. The cab is now both wider and taller, with isolation mountings to reduce noise and vibration for a more comfortable operating environment. It also has lower daily operating costs (2.6 percent less fuel consumption at 2,000 rpm). The 759G uses patented ShiftTilt technology to shift the upper structure forward in direct proportion to the slope’s grade. These feller bunchers offer 4-way leveling capability that boasts 27? forward leveling (51% slope), 20? side leveling (36% slope), and 10? rear leveling (18% slope).
