The 1910G is the largest model in the John Deere forwarder line
The 1910G forwarder is equipped with a Final Tier 4 200 kW (268 hp). The maximum engine output has increased by 7.5 percent and torque by 21 percent compared to previous models. The drive hydraulics have also been increased, with the transmission having 4.5 percent more tractive force. The 1910G forwarders allow operators to carry even larger loads. Other features that were popular with customers have been retained, such as the improved operator cab and configurable joystick controls.
One of the key features on this model is the adaptive driveline control, which John Deere indicates is a first in the forestry industry. This software-based control system improves the productivity and drivability of this G-Series forwarder, and enables the operator to choose the desired RPM setting (Eco, Normal, Power) for the operating conditions. The system automatically adjusts the engine's RPMs to correspond with the engine load. In high-load situations, the driveline control ensures that the diesel engine runs smoothly and uses the maximum available tractive force efficiently.
Another feature is the larger load capacity. The cross-sectional area of the wide load space is bigger and the new-generation headboard provides excellent visibility to the load space. Additionally, the CF8 boom on the 1910G moves smoothly and seamlessly, increasing accuracy and efficiency. Boom control is improved using Intelligent Boom Control (IBC). IBC is a technology that improves operator productivity by automatically controlling the lift, slew and extension of the boom based on the location of the grapple. IBC increases accuracy and, ultimately, the number of loads per each work shift. Additionally, configurable joystick controls allow the dealer to quickly reconfigure the machine to meet the preference of the operator. The operator can select one of three configuration options, providing the operator with an intuitive system.
The 1910G, as well as the rest of the G-Series Forwarder line, is equipped with the TimberMatic™ F-16 control system. The control system features a configurable user interface, cruise control and inclination display, increasing operator efficiency. Additionally, the new software offers service personnel remote access to the machine. New MECA control modules, simple CAN busses and a streamlined electrical system improve the efficiency of machine functions.
The 1910G is available with two cab options, fixed or rotating and levelling. The rotating and levelling cabin helps the driver to maintain the correct working positions to reduce strain on the back and shoulder areas, even when working on uneven terrain. With a cabin rotation of 290 degrees, the 1910G model offers a view of the boom and grapple, enabling safer, easier log loading. The large windows of the cab allow for virtually unrestricted all-around visibility. Other fatigue-beating features, including ergonomic armrests, a fully adjustable air-cushioned seat and an automated climate-control system, help to boost operator productivity. All John Deere forwarders come standard with JDLink™ in base for five years. This remotely connects owners and managers with their equipment and local John Deere dealer. They have access to alerts and machine information, including performance and maintenance data, allowing them to better manage where and how equipment is being used. Source
