The E-Series is the most recent entry into Deere's wheeled harvesters and forwarders, all designed with stronger frames than their predecessors and equipped with rotating and leveling cabs.

After first launching its E-Series forestry equipment in Europe, Deere has introduced the line to North America. The E-Series is the most recent entry into Deere's wheeled harvesters and forwarders, all designed with stronger frames than their predecessors and equipped with rotating and leveling cabs.

All E-Series machines feature a rotating and leveling cab with revamped automation for 360° visibility. The automatic air-conditioning of the new cab, top-quality upholstery, low noise and vibration levels, and a wide range of additional accessories ensure first-class operation. Due to the cab stabilizer, which Deere says works softly and precisely, the machines' operating speed was able to be increased.

E-Series harvester models include the 1070E, 1170E, 1270E, and the 1470E. The 1070E is available in a four-wheel or six-wheel version. New-generation harvester heads are part of the series launch, with the H414 developed especially for the 1170E harvester, and the compact-sized H412 compatible with the 1070E and 1170E harvesters.

The E-Series' six forwarders include the 810E, 1010E, 1110E, 1210E, 1510E, and 1910E. The load capacity and engine power of the two biggest models have been increased. The 1510E, powered by a 6.8-L JDPS PowerTech Plus engine with high torque at low rpm, and the 1910E, with a 9.0-L PowerTech Plus engine, are built especially for heavy-duty operations.

The new TimberMatic H-09 measuring and automation system includes fully integrated trouble-shooting and anti-bucking functions. The system is said by Deere to be easy to use as the special operator-targeted parameters can be quickly located. The unique TimberLink software facilitates the monitoring and optimization of the machine's performance.

Deere says it increased the uptime of the E-Series by requiring fewer daily inspections and longer service intervals. The E-Series' hydraulic fan changes direction automatically and cleans dust and foreign bodies from the cooling system. A preliminary filter significantly increases the operating life of the engine air filters. Additionally, the harvester has a central lubrication system, which shortens the time required for daily maintenance.
