John Deere PowerTech™ Plus 9.0-L diesel engine delivers low total fluid consumption and high reliability.
959ML allows for a directional felling head or a grapple and live-heel boom for shovel-logging applications.
The 959ML Shovel Logger can easily grab all logs within reach when working either uphill or downhill, minimizing overall ground disturbance.
New FL100 Directional Felling Head delivers outstanding grapple capability, arm durability, and rotate/tilt power.
Designed to tackle steep slopes and other challenging terrain, the 959ML features industry-leading machine-leveling technology that enables exceptional stability.
Spacious climate-controlled cab features expansive jobsite visibility, ergonomic controls, and optional fully adjustable suspension seat.
Optional state-of-the-art slope-monitoring system measures the actual ground-slope angle of the machine and displays the value in real-time on the in-cab screen.

Operating for long hours is common. As the day goes on, maintaining consistent productivity is important. One factor in keeping high, consistent productivity is a comfortable operating environment. The M-series boasts greatly increased window area for better visibility and more cab space over prior models. Low-effort electrohydraulic (EH) controls allow you to customize the button and lever layout to your preference and save your settings when switching between operators.
Now included in base machine, the JDLink telematic system provides the foundation for John Deere’s Precision Forestry solutions. These systems help optimize your machine, your uptime, and your jobsites, which ultimately lead to improved production efficiency.
Easy access to service components helps operators perform daily checks and any scheduled maintenance, which helps minimize unplanned downtime and costly repairs down the road. The 900M-series tracked machines feature a fully opened enclosure and service doors for excellent access to all scheduled maintenance areas.
*Side walkways are optional features on 903M, 953M, and 953MH models
The M-series undercarriage is purpose built to handle severe forestry applications while maintaining maneuverability, especially in thinning operations. The track frames are shaped to deflect debris while also providing strength and stability.
The expansive leveling envelope tilts up to 26-degrees forward for excellent steep-slope operation. Combined with a long and wide undercarriage, the leveling system maximizes performance in challenging terrain.
An available option on all leveling M-series machines, the slope-monitoring system measures the actual ground-slope angle the machine is working on and displays it on the in-cab monitor, for more confident operation in tough steep-slope conditions and potentially greater overall efficiency.
