John Deere added the EH Boom Performance package to its G-Series large-frame skid-steers and compact track loaders (CTLs).

The feature is available as a factory-installed option on the 330G and 332G skid-steers, as well as the 331G and 333G CTLs.

“Our EH Boom Performance package automates repetitive tasks and improves job site efficiencies and safety,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction and Forestry. “With this new technology, operators can feel more confident and productive than ever before.”

The electronic self-level feature automatically keeps the bucket, pallet forks or attachment level so the operator doesn’t need to make adjustments when raising or lowering the boom.

The return to dig component allows the operator to automatically and easily reset the bucket or attachment into a ready-to-work position, while the return to carry element enables the operator to automatically and easily reset the boom and bucket into an operator-designated ready-to-carry position.

The boom height kickout feature lets the operator set the boom height based on a low ceiling or the height above a truck sidewall or a hopper. Using the joystick detent will ensure the boom automatically stops at the preset position, reducing the chances of equipment damage.

The EH Boom Performance Package also includes updated joysticks with built-in detent positions to activate the operator programmable boom and bucket functions. Height to hinge pin is 11 feet, and the lift path on the G-Series extends an additional 6 inches from the machine.
