Optional feature enables faster cycle times and more precise operation
MOLINE, Illinois (September 4, 2014) — Intelligent Boom Control (IBC) is now offered as an option on all of John Deere’s 1110E Forwarders. This technological breakthrough significantly increases forwarder productivity and efficiency, while providing best possible fuel economy and boom lifetime.
Intelligent Boom Control has been praised for its ability to operate the boom with more precision, making it easier for the operator, and easier on the equipment as well. Using the IBC system, the operator controls the boom tip directly instead of controlling each of the independent boom joint movements manually. This makes boom operation accurate, fast and easy. By eliminating extra movements, this system also increases the durability of boom structures and hydraulic cylinders. These features significantly improve an operator’s working speed, resulting in higher overall productivity and lower costs.
The IBC system can also accelerate the learning curve for operators. Intuitive and easy to learn to use, the technology reduces the amount of time it takes to become a skilled operator, resulting in less training time.
John Deere’s 1110E Forwarder with the IBC option is now available in North America. IBC is also offered as an option on all of John Deere’s 1210E and 1510E Forwarders. For more information, visit www.JohnDeere.com.
