The John Deere 950K PAT production-class crawler dozer is built specifically for customers looking for a machine that will excel in applications from mass excavation to fine grading. It incorporates an EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV John Deere 9.0L engine with 280 hp. The efficiently designed hydrostatic powertrain gets approximately 15 per cent more power to the ground versus a conventional torque-converter powertrain. The 8.6 cubic yard six-way PAT blade gives the operators the flexibility to place material where they want it on every pass using the blade angle feature. The PAT enhances job site productivity and versatility by executing several tasks that might otherwise require multiple machines.
