The John Deere walking tractor prototype is a practical walking machine designed for forest workers to be able to go up and down rough mountain terrain in snow and mud. John Deere subsidiary in Finland, Plustech, succeeded to create a machine that has the best possible working stability and minimum impact on the terrain. Moving on six articulated legs, the harvester advances forward and backward, sideways and diagonally, thus automatically adapting to the forest floor; it can also turn in place and step over obstacles. The machine boasts an intelligent computer system that controls all walking functions, such as the direction of movement, the travelling speed, the step height and gait, and the ground clearance. The functions of machine’s loader and engine are regulated by the Timberjack’s Total Machine Control system (TMC).
