John Deere’s 333G Compact Track Loader has anti-vibration undercarriage system designed to reduce machine vibration and increase operator comfort.
The John Deere anti-vibration undercarriage system for the 333G Compact Track Loader has been an exciting innovation in John Deere’s compact construction line up over the past few years since introducing the feature. Designed to reduce machine vibration and increase operator comfort, the anti-vibration undercarriage system was created as a solution to combat operator fatigue and enhance user experience.
“At John Deere, we are committed to enhancing our operators’ experience and creating a more productive and dynamic job site,” said Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “The new anti-vibration undercarriage delivers on that commitment, providing a solution to increase comfort, in turn boosting operator performance. By improving the operator experience, we’re helping to maximise overall productivity and profitability on the job site.”
Faster and smoother
The popular undercarriage option offers a solution to enhance machine operation, helping operators to remain focused on the job at hand. Key features of the anti-vibration undercarriage system include:
• An isolated undercarriage
• Bogie rollers
• Updated grease points
• Hydrostatic hose protection shield, and
• Rubber isolators.
By utilising an anti-vibration suspension at the front and rear of the track frame, and absorbing shock through the rubber isolators, the machine provides a smoother ride for the operator. These features also enable the machine to travel at higher speeds while retaining material on the job, and permit the machine to flex up and down, creating a more comfortable operator experience, ultimately helping reduce operator fatigue.
Better operator experience
Designed with productivity in mind, the bogie roller system allows for oscillating movement of the rollers, promoting smoother transitions when cresting a hill, improved stability on uneven grounds, and enabling larger debris to pass between the roller and track system. This design also features an oscillating bogie arm, further enhancing operator efficiency. It includes only four new grease points which are easy to access, meaning operators can spend more time being productive.
Improving operator experience was a key priority during development of the antivibration undercarriage system back in 2021. With that in mind, additional enhancements were made and a new angled steel shield was added to protect the hydrostatic hoses from exposure to debris. As a result, operators can expect less downtime due to a reduction in potential damage to the hydrostatic hoses. Additionally, rubber isolators were implemented to offer longer track life and allow easier repairs compared to other competitive solutions.
The anti-vibration undercarriage system is available on zig-zag bar tracks on the 333G Compact Track Loader models available in various locations.
