John Deere forestry Equipment Adds New Wheel Weight Package
The new optional wheel weight package kit offers up to 1,900 pounds to the front of capable machines, which include the John Deere 640H Cable Skidder, 648H, 748H, and 848H Grapple Skidders. Brandon O'Neal, product marketing manager at John Deere Construction & Forestry, says, “This is a simple solution that increases machine capabilities to help our customers become more productive on the job. Loggers will see a substantial difference in the load weight they are able to pull with the heavier set of wheels."
The new weight package is made for the front two wheels of the machine only and requires the use of duel ring wheels and SWEDA axles.
