John Deere will showcase the new 904 P-Tier wheel loader for the first time at AGG1 and the World of Asphalt in Nashville, Tennessee.

The 904 P-Tier is a two-pass loader designed to provide the durability and reliability needed to take on processed aggregate stockpiles and more efficiently load trucks or railcars, the company says.

The new loader offers obstacle intelligence features, which increase visibility to the sides of the machine by integrating two digital cameras on the rearview mirror platform and combine views into a single display in the cab.

The 904 P-Tier also offers an improved rear-object-detection system. This feature overlays a projected vehicle reversible path within the same dedicated monitor to improve the operator’s situational awareness. These features, coupled with cab comfort options, are designed to ensure operators remain productive throughout the day, John Deere says.

Additionally, the machine is equipped with 9.8- and 9.3-cu.-yd. material-handling buckets with integrated spill guards and curved side cutters, plus seat-mounted hydraulic controls. High-capacity, heavy-duty axles with standard axle cooling filtration aim to deliver durability in difficult conditions compared to previous models.

The 904 P-Tier features large tilt cylinders and high hydraulic pressures, engine power and torque. Its fuel-efficient engines, lockup torque converters and a dedicated steering pump mean operators can do more while burning less fuel, John Deere says. It is also JDLink compatible, providing real-time machine data and alerts, plus a suite of dealer and factory tools.

“The 904 P-Tier is built off the success of the 844L aggregate handler,” says Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager for loaders and aggregates at John Deere Construction & Forestry. “It’s equipped with key features like increased horsepower, breakout force, hydraulic pressures and bucket offerings. The 904 P-Tier is purpose-built for the rugged demands of the aggregates industry, and the new model identity supports this approach. In addition, we wanted to advance our machine’s technology offerings by adding features that improve the experience of those who operate these machines.”
