With IBC, operators no longer need to control each independent boom function separately. Just control the attachment position, and IBC automatically guides the boom and cylinders accordingly. IBC also automatically controls swing speed based on the overall position of the attachment.
IBC is easily configurable to user preference, so operators can adapt their motions to the application. Individual user settings can be saved in up to eight separate profiles, to accommodate multiple skill and experience levels.
For applications requiring extended harvesting reach with less machine movement, optional 10.34-meter long boom reaches almost 34 feet either uphill or down.
A heavy-duty John Deere PowerTech™ Plus 9.0L diesel engine delivers low total fluid consumption and high dependability.
The slope-monitoring system measures the actual ground-slope angle the machine is working on and displays it on the in-cab monitor, for more confident operation in tough steep-slope conditions.
Long and wide undercarriage combined with our industry-leading leveling system maximizes stability on steep slopes and other challenging terrain conditions.
