According to the company, the breakers are engineered for high performance, durability and easy maintenance in applications such as aggregates. The HB06H and HB15FH are compatible with Develon’s DX62R-7 and DX63-7 mini excavators, the DX140LC-7 and DX140LCR-7 crawler excavators, and the DX140W-7 wheeled excavator.

New dozers address operator safety, comfort

John Deere introduced the 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier dozers, which were previously in the market as the 950K and 1050K. Now equipped with standard LEDs, John Deere says operator efficiency is improved in nighttime or low-light operations. Also helping to improve uptime, cold-weather hydraulic lines are specially tailored for operations in cold climates. Additionally, the company’s Operator Presence System ensures an operator is present in the seat of the cab – with the seat belt fastened – before the parking break can be released. Both dozer models also feature a heated and ventilated seat option, which is air suspended with adjustment controls for optimal ergonomics.

Additionally, the company says a new Cat Grade with 3D Ready option provides more flexibility for customers upgrading to Cat Grade with 3D on D4, D5 and D6 dozer models. Now standard, Cat Assist with ARO ensures every new Cat D4 to D7 dozer is equipped with the suite of Assist features that can easily be upgraded to Cat Grade 3D.
