Tuning the John Deere CH570 sugar cane harvester

2017 John Deere CH570

Sugar cane harvester – 9.0L – Turbo Diesel – Phoenix L14 ECU

The Challenge

In this blog post, we will get into how tuning the John Deere CH570 sugar cane harvester can positively impact your upcoming harvest season. The key to a successful harvest lies in the efficiency and optimal performance of your machinery and Alt Tune’s tuning solutions are designed to deliver exactly that.

The John Deere CH570, equipped with advanced technology, functions as a reliable sugar cane harvester, ensuring a high-quality harvest. With a 5.2-meter topper, it can reach even the tallest sugar canes. The crop divider, side knives, knock-down rollers, and floating sidewalls are meticulously designed to minimize cane loss and soil content. Additionally, the convenience of adjusting the side knives from the cab allows for quick adaptation to various cane conditions. However, achieving a high-quality harvest is not the sole focus; the ability to expedite the harvest process with minimal downtime is equally crucial.

The Solution

Enter ECU tuning, a solution that unleashes the hidden power within the ECU, surpassing the limitations of factory settings. Through an ECU tune, adjustments are made to unlock this latent power. Alt Tune provides a customized tuning solution tailored to your specific needs, machine specifications, and working environment. We are flashing our custom tune to the Phoenix L14 ECU using Alientech KESS3. This custom tune enhances power and torque, rendering the CH570 more responsive and increasing its ground speed, thereby boosting the efficiency of your harvest operation.

Like most diesel machines, the CH570 comes with a variety of emission settings, often causing problems leading to downtime. Alt Tune presents an emissions-setting solution to eliminate these issues. Combining our emissions solution with a custom tune ensures that your next harvest season will be even more efficient.
