The John Deere 640L II Skidder

AFGRI Equipment Introduces the John Deere 640L-II Skidder

AFGRI Equipment has been appointed as a John Deere construction and forestry dealer from March 2021. This new addition to the current portfolio of equipment supplied allows for greater synergy throughout the parts and aftersales service divisions to support the Construction and forestry franchises with a more localised footprint. On one of the recent visits to Tzaneen we had the opportunity to visit some clients and have a look at the John Deere 640L-II cable skidder in its natural habitat. These machines move fast, over tough terrain to deliver the fastest turnaround times between felling sites and staging areas.

Some top reasons why customers love John Deere Skidders are:

Simplified routing of the electrical and hydraulic system improves reliability and eases service. Wiring and hoses are protected against wear and damaging bends.

Continuously Variable Transmission

The easy-to-use CVT transmission automatically senses the load and delivers more torque and traction as needed to maintain the desired speed.

New Steering Sensors

New steering sensors control articulation speed when nearing frame-to-frame contact, cushioning impact during full articulation, and improving operator comfort.

Productive new two-speed 4000 Winch delivers internal gear-ratio changes and line speeds similar to the two-speed 6000 Winch.
