John Deere‘s L-Series wheel loaders, which were rolled out in August, can now be equipped with the company’s factory-installed Payload Weighing System, integrated with Topcon.

According to Deere, the Payload Weighing System is designed to increase productivity by maximizing operator workflow as operators can weigh as they work, reducing interruptions. The system is available on the 744L, 824L and 844L models.

The system is equipped with an auto-accumulation feature, enabling the machine to automatically add each bucket load to an accumulating total. In addition, the system features overload alarm alerts for when payload has exceeded the user-defined limit, which, in turn, reduces tire wear.

“We know our customers are managing busy work schedules, and looking for opportunities to streamline jobs and boost productivity,” says Andrew Kahler, product marketing manager of WorkSight solutions at John Deere. “The new Payload Weighing System delivers just that. With this new system, operators can quickly weigh and calculate loads, ensuring they accurately and consistently achieve target payloads. This streamlines the loadout process while allowing operators to focus on getting the job done.”

Furthermore, a touchscreen display inside the cab shows current payload information while the live tip-off function provides the ability to adjust the final load. Operators can also manage multiple jobs simultaneously and can pause active jobs when needed, according to Deere.

Additional onboard features include advanced memory job search, report functions to help view and manage productivity, and a database of input of customers, products and equipment.
