The way things work with John Deere, there are some basic bulldozers that, then, may be adapted with just about anything the user needs.
In a recent announcement, John Deere’s Customer Advocate Group (CAG), according to Deere, “asked us to turn down the noise and turn up productivity on our 550K Dozer,” and they responded. The result was a bigger, quieter cab and an engine that works in areas difficult to reach; an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Final Tier 4 (FT4) EU Stage IV engine utilizing diesel fuel, along with an Eco Mode for improved fuel efficiency with no loss of productivity.
There is also a direct-drive fan which conserves on fuel, reduces noise, and provides efficient cooling. There is a a fingertip control module featuring sealed switch There’s more to like in the K-Series — such as a direct-drive fan that provides efficient cooling, reduces noise, and conserves fuel.
JD recommends the following crawler dozers for reasons they believe their specs show. Again, these may be retrofitted during a “Build Your Own” mode, right down to your service and support plan(s).
The 450K Crawler Dozer features transmission pressure sensors; the 4.5 litre Final Tier 4 (FT4) engine discussed above; total machine control (TMC); and a push button throttle. Featuring dual-path hydrostatic transmission (HST), the 550K also has TMC and and FT4. Its Eco mode eases fuel use by up to 20%. The 650K has the same features of the 550 K.
In the 700K Crawler Dozer, we graduate to a 6.8L FT4, but then the features are the same as the 450-550K machines, with the 750K being the same except for Eco mode regulating engine RPM; a fully integrated grade-control system and a Dura-Trax system.
In the 850K, the Eco mode regulates engine rpm and it also has an FT4, TMC, and sports a dual-path HST. It also has a Dura-Trax system with a fully-integrated grade control system.
Last but not least, the 1050K Crawler Dozer Eco mode reduces fuel use by up to 25%; has TMC; features a 13.5L FT4 and dual-path hydrostatic transmission.
And this is only the beginning as it seems like there is an infinite number of ways to retrofit this John Deere line.
