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 & Forestry. "Our new FR22B and FR24B Felling Heads provide just that - a reliable felling solution designed with the operator's needs in mind.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
