TimberMatic Maps & TimberManager

TimberMatic Maps

TimberMatic Maps gives operators a real-time production view to the logging site. The data collected by the harvester’s sensors and the precise GPS-based location of the felled timber, is automatically transmitted from the harvester to the TimberMatic Maps application for use by the forwarder operator. The data between the machines are updated through a cloud service, and all the operators working at the same work site can see all the tree species and assortments with the driving routes right down to the individual logs.


TimberManager is the business owner’s view to the work site. The contractor can see exact information about the progress of the work site. TimberManager displays the information as cubic meters and as a percentage. The precise information about the volumes on the storage place makes it easier to plan the timber transports and improves the operation of the entire delivery process.

Intelligent Boom Control (IBC)

John Deere introduced Intelligent Boom Control (IBC) for forwarders in 2013. With IBC, boom control is precise, fast and easy because the operator can focus on controlling the grapple rather than the boom joint movements. IBC was also introduced for harvesters in 2017. In the harvester, IBC has been adjusted to the work cycle; the trajectory and functioning of the boom adjust automatically to the harvester’s work phases.

Operating both forwarder and harvester can be trained simply by switching the model from the simulator display. It is even possible to use numerous machines simultaneously at one stand by connecting several simulators to the same exercise. Training with a complete machine chain at the same stand gives a realistic picture of logging.
