John Deere 2154 Harvester-John Deer

JCH has multiple 2154’s across 4-5 sites across Tasmania. The 2154 with a Waratah 616 head leads our production capabilities on each coup.

These machines are utilised as highly productive and efficient units which deliver consistency on a production front. The pairing of the 2154 and the 616 Waratah head provide JCH with more power and faster hydraulic response. We find the John Deere 2154 to provide our operators with power, speed, and fuel economy.

JCH has multiple 1910E Forwarders that bring finality to the harvesting process in a coupe.

The intelligent boom control is a feature that has received extensive praise allowing for precise grapple actions. JCH has seen operators enjoy the ergonomic environment the 1910E provides with the automatic levelling and rotating functions absorbing the changing topography and challenging changes in environment. The accessible real time data sees JCH identify efficiencies and plan accordingly.

John Deere 2654 Shovel

JCH has worked with suppliers to purpose build machines that will be utilised on challenging and steep topography.

The flexibility of this unit is an immaculate fit with JCH and its operational ethos.

Tigercat L822D Feller Buncher

JCH worked with supplies of equipment to implement this unit into a high volume and continually challenging environment.

The “buncher” is designed for a powerful lift, tight tuck boom in thinning and final felling. It performs within fleet as a highly productive unit with great performance and high efficiency. The steep slope works it undertakes requires a winch assist anchor point and it continually works in conjunction with the Timbermax T14.

The safety this unit provides allows for effortless and meaningful felling with the assurances our operators deserve. This innovative and reliable solution brings flexibility to attached machines, the I-Winch control system effortlessly assists the operator in identifying limits and undesirable situations. JCH have seen many positives from this investment including environmental and soil disturbance improvements while minimising weather and environmental prohibitors.
