InnovationWay TimberNavi saves time by simplifying the map creation process. Leveraging the digital maps within industry leader, ESRI ArcGIS for Desktop, the foreman or site manager can quickly create a custom map of the jobsite. He can then customize it by adding points of interest for the operator such as tree types, power lines, cut block borders, harvesting areas and more. Once complete, map information can easily be transferred to the TimberNavi monitor with a USB flash drive. In the cab, TimberNavi features a high-resolution, easyto-use 10.4 in. touchscreen display. This display provides operators quick visibility to real-time data, including current machine location, terrain information and distance to the nearest landing. The clarity of the maps enables operators to view the entire jobsite at a glance. On the jobsite, it provides operators maximum visibility to the land they’re harvesting. Operators receive visual alarms based on the customizable buffer zones set around cut block boundaries and points of interest. The measuring tool supports easy calculation of harvest areas and skid distances, allowing operators to adjust cut patterns to ensure job and fuel efficiencies. TimberNavi is seamlessly integrated in the machine as part of the John Deere ForestSight suite of technologies. When ordered as a purpose-built, factory installation, TimberNavi can be financed and delivered with the purchase of a new machine. Visit johndeere.com/Timbernavi.
tion, the feed system automatically slows as the engine lugs, decreasing the rate material is fed into the drum. This action tends to produce smaller chips, and keeps a constant flow of material into the drum housing, which is perfect for microchip operations. Bandit’s new patent-pending Clean Feed System increases production because of the system’s superior pulling and crushing power, and it nearly eliminates the discharge of chips under the feed system, increasing yield by as much as 5%. “It’s like giving yourself a 5% raise. Plus you eliminate the mess.” Visit banditchippers.com.
