John Deere has updated its Knuckleboom Loader lineup with enhancements that improve visibility, precision and overall operator experience.
Aiming to increase operator safety and accuracy, the 2022 models of 437E and 337E Knuckleboom Loaders will now feature a newly designed front window. A polycarbonate window will replace the external mesh guard, offering a more clear view.
“We are always looking for ways to increase operator comfort on the job while keeping a focus on machine safety and design,” said Jarvis de Groot, product marketing manager, Forestry Swing Machines and Knuckleboom Loaders at John Deere. “By removing the external window guard and redesigning the front window on the 437E and 337E Knuckleboom Loader models, we are significantly improving visibility for the operator, making for a safer and more comfortable work environment.”
The 2022 model-year upgrades also feature a new hood profile in the left-rear corner of the machine, which opens up the view behind the machine.
According to the company, this new design works in conjunction with the window updates to make for safer, easier operation and enable the operator to be more precise and maximize uptime.
In addition to visibility enhancements, the latest models will offer optional satellite-ready radio. A new optional hydraulic vacuum pump can also be added to 2022 model-year machines, minimizing oil loss and spillage during times of hydraulic maintenance and repair.
