Size among enhancements on John Deere’s 460E ADT

By |  August 31, 2012

After an introduction at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2011, the John Deere 460E ADT joins the 370E and 410E as part of the E-Series.

John Deere is calling the 460E its largest, most operator-friendly truck ever built. The E-Series ADTs feature a John Deere PowerTech 13.5-liter IT4 engine with three power levels based on the model – 422 net hp, 443 net hp and 481 net hp.

A ZF transmission includes a high-capacity retarder, eight forward gears and four reverse gears. In addition, the new hauler axles are designed for heavy-duty applications and include on-the-fly differential locks and outboard planetaries. Each axle is independently pressure lubed and filtered. E-Series axles use internal wet disc brakes that utilize independent cooling circuits.
