Tame the Toughest Timber
These go-getters won't let you down. To make these workhorses even better, we went to our toughest customers – loggers just like you – to get fresh ideas on making our swing machines more rugged and reliable. Whether you are log loading, road building, decking, shovel logging, or processing/harvesting, G-Series Swing Machines will help you move more wood, more effectively. 

  • Final Tier 3/EU Stage IIIA Engine
  • Heavy Duty Undercarriage
  • Larger-diameter lower rollers
More dependable electrical architecture simplifies wiring harnesses and reduces the number of electrical connectors, fuses, and relays by approximately 25 percent. Undercarriage X-frames and upper-frame structures have been improved to deliver significantly longer life than previous models.  Hydraulically driven, variable-speed fan runs only as needed, conserving power and fuel. Reversing option automatically reverses airflow to eject debris from the cooler cores, decreasing cooler-maintenance frequency. Larger, more durable, and higher-capacity coolers along with improved airflow help reduce hydraulic operating temperatures, for maximum component life. Larger-diameter rollers with polished shafts and improved seals extend wear life, while reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

Cab Comforts
Polycarbonate windows durably meet safety requirements.  Multi-language color LCD monitor provides intuitive access to a wealth of machine data and functions.  A staircase at the rear of the machine eases cab entry and exit.  Roomier cab boasts an additional three inches of legroom.  Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less movement or effort.


Half-level hydraulic-control system reduces fuel consumption by three to five percent, depending on application.  Ground-level servicing and conveniently located filters, fluid-fill locations, and grease points help ease daily checks and preventative maintenance.  When equipped with JDLink, fast accurate remote diagnostics and rapid service response, industry-leading parts availability, and dealer support are always within easy reach.
