ConExpo-Con/Agg 2017 Exhibitor Profile: John Deere

By |  February 24, 2017

The John Deere wheel loader family welcomes the addition of the 844K Series-III and 844K Series-III aggregate handler configuration. The new wheel loaders offer a 13.5 L John Deere PowerTech Final Tier 4 diesel engine that delivers 380 hp for the 844K-III and 401 hp for the aggregate handler configuration. The models are equipped with a standard five-speed transmission with torque-converter lockup in gears two through five. The aggregate handler configuration is purpose-built for two-pass loading with increased power, larger tilt cylinders, higher hydraulic pressure and increased counterweighing to handle bigger material-handling buckets (9.3 cu. yd./9.8 cu. yd.), reduce fill time in processed aggregate and ultimately conserve fuel in applications. New enhanced performance buckets boast a narrower integrated spill guard and curved side cutters to improve load visibility and load retention. In the operator station, standard features include joystick steering with integral forward/neutral/reverse, advanced LCD color monitor, sealed-switch module, ride control and hydraulic controls integrated into the deluxe heated seat.
