Harvesters 1270 G
The 1270G includes a double-pump system featuring accurate boom control and efficient harvester heads. Processing Power Control (PPC) with three processing levels according to tree size comes standard.
The John Deere 1270G consumes significantly less fuel than its predecessor, but boasts even more power.
The increased output is particularly big in the 6-wheel machine, which now has the same power as the 8-wheel machine, i.e. 200 kW instead of the previous 170 kW. The torque has also been boosted: by as much as 17% in the 6-wheel machine and 5% in the 8-wheel machine. Fuel consumption, however, is very low – and that results in significant direct savings over the lifetime of the machine. The FT4 engine and the entire fuel line can use 20% biodiesel.

The cabin options include a fixed or a rotating and leveling cabin. The redesigned rotating and leveling cabin now has more legroom, and the materials used in the interior are easier to clean. The machine comes with Processing Power Control (PPC) – a simple and easy-to-use solution to balance power and fuel economy in different logging conditions.
The new John Deere’s Processing Power Control (PPC) system: up to 15 per cent better fuel economy, thanks to three performance modes and more than enough twin-pump-muscle for even the roughest forestry tasks. With the PPC system you can adapt the machine performance level according to the stem size with a flick of a switch.
SIMPLE: Level 1 is for small diameter tree handling for thinning., Level 2 is for nominal tree sizes, and Level 3 is for thick and heavy trunks. The power level selected is displayed on your screen.
