John Deere has launched a line-up of large wheeled loaders as part of its Performance Tiering Strategy.
Available in the US and Canada, the 744 P-tier, 824 P-tier, 844 P-tier, and the new 904 P-tier wheeled loaders are said to offer advanced productivity features, increased job-site reliability, operator comfort, and enhanced serviceability to help improve machine uptime.
All P-tier loaders include a standard lockup torque converter that adds additional torque during operation and increases shift quality. In addition, the 744 P-tier and 824 P-tier models feature ground-level servicing, including a remote engine oil dipstick and improved electrical and hydraulic routing.
“Whether the machines are working at the face or loading trucks, John Deere customers can be confident that the P-tier machines will provide exceptional performance all day – even in the most rugged applications,” said Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager at John Deere.
”Building upon the improvements introduced on the L-series loaders in 2019, the P-tier models incorporate even more technology advancements, providing our customers with a line of dependable and strong wheel loaders to meet the demands of the aggregates industry.”
John Deere says that all P-tier wheeled loader models also include technology options such as an Advanced Vision System and an Advanced Obstacle Detection System for improved visibility and increased situational awareness.
The new higher-resolution digital cameras, dedicated display, and escalating audible alerts inform operators when obstacles are in the path of their machine. This feature also overlays a projected vehicle reversible path within the same dedicated monitor, enhancing the operator’s experience and control.
