John Deere announces equipment, warranty additions to the forestry certified used program

To better support customers, John Deere recently announced new equipment and warranty additions to its forestry certified used program.

The program, which ensures the value and reliability of used forestry equipment, will now include L-Series skidders and wheeled feller bunchers. Additionally, the warranty choices for all certified used skidders and wheeled feller bunchers now include an option to extend up to 12 months, in addition to the existing six-month offering.

“Our certified used program is designed to give customers a sense of security when purchasing used equipment,” said Kent Stickler, manager, Product Training and Information, John Deere. “Through this program, whether a machine has 5,000 hours or 8,000 hours, we are able to stand behind the quality of our equipment and provide our customers with the support they need to keep machines up and running.”

The most notable change to the program is the inclusion of the L-Series skidders and wheeled feller bunchers, providing customers with more certified used models. The new 12-month warranty option guarantees that customers are covered if any issues do occur with used skidders or wheeled feller bunchers. Forwarders, wheeled harvesters, and tracked feller bunchers and harvesters are still eligible for a six-month warranty.

The forestry certified used program provides loggers with reassurance when purchasing John Deere used equipment, including skidders, wheeled feller bunchers and harvesters, tracked feller bunchers and harvesters, and forwarders. Each used machine must pass a strict 100-plus point inspection in order to be certified. When using a certified machine, owners and operators can be confident in the quality of their machine, as John Deere and its world-class dealers back each piece of equipment.
