John Deere expanded its G-tier wheel loader offering in the U.S. with the addition of the 644 G-tier. Additionally, John Deere’s new 544 G-tier wheel loader is now available in Canada.

“Not every customer is looking for the most technology in a machine,” says Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager at John Deere, which unveiled its performance tiering strategy in 2021. “By introducing the 544 G-tier in Canada and expanding the availability of the 644 G-tier into the United States, we are providing our customers with options to help meet their diverse needs.

According to Gribble, John Deere’s G-tier models support customers looking for reliability without the extras they would find in a P-tier or X-tier wheel loader.

“With the G-tier models, customers are getting the versatility and ruggedness in a machine, without any compromises,” he says.

John Deere says the 644 G-tier is equipped with a cab design that promotes ease of operation. The 644 G-tier wheel loaders feature a John Deere 6.8-liter engine and John Deere Teammate axles. Customers can customize the machine through a variety of base-level packages, including options related to locking differentials, ride control, seats, radio and rear chassis work lights.

The 544 G-tier, meanwhile, is designed to provide a more economical solution in the 3-yd. loader size class. John Deere says  544 G-tier controls were designed with operators of all skillsets and productivity in mind, offering a simplified setup and overall functionality.
