JOHN Deere has updated its E-Series knuckleboom loaders with new features that it says are driven by customer feedback and designed to boost operator comfort.
The new 337E and 437E models incorporate a redesigned operator station that is built to reduce noise and heat within the cab, while also including several options that increase comfort throughout the day.
The new features, which build upon the fuel efficiency improvements introduced in 2019, provide customers with efficient, comfortable solutions for the loaders’ operation.
“Since the introduction of the E-Series machines, we continued to speak with customers and collect their feedback so we can ensure our machines meet their needs,” said Brandon O’Neal, product Marketing Manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry.
“Customers are concerned with comfort and fuel costs, especially as they manage labour challenges and tightening budgets. With the improvements we have made over the last two years, we are able to provide our customers with immediate solutions for their business.”
One of the most notable changes on the updated E-Series machines is the removal of the rear and left back windows, reducing the heat load inside the cab and improving operator comfort.
Additionally, the removal of the rear window helps to lower noise levels in the cab. Each cab can be equipped with several comfort-boosting options, such as a heated, ventilated seat; a premium radio package, including Bluetooth; a cell phone holder with power supply; or an in-cab storage cooler.
Three lighting packages are available to help provide visibility in low-light conditions.
