The new extended stick boom option applies to the 800MH-Series tracked harvesters.
Customer feedback has resulted in John Deere launching an extended boom stick that permits a longer reach option, enabling operators to minimize the number of cut trails. The longer reach will allow customers to be more efficient while meeting local regulations. With the extended boom, operators can harvest larger areas, reducing the frequency of required movement of the machine. This not only benefits the surrounding terrain, but also improves the efficiency of the machine.
The extended boom is designed for use with smaller attachments and can reach 32.5 feet (9.9 meters). Additionally, the extended option features a narrow boom tip, allowing the operator to reach past standing timber in thinning applications. This also helps operators minimize damage to the trees being harvested. Source
