John Deer 1050K crawler dozer

John Deere 1050K crawler dozer incorporates an EPA Final Tier 4/ EU Stage IV PowerTech diesel engine with 350 hp (261 kW). Completely redesigned, the 1050K’s dual-path hydrostatic transmission allows an operator to push a full load through turns without losing material.  Eco mode feature optimizes fuel economy while maintaining ground speed by automatically adjusting engine speed and transmission settings based on load. This has the potential to reduce fuel consumption up to 25 per cent. The production-class dozer’s heavy-duty undercarriage is sealed and lubricated. Its oval-track design has only one wear-causing forward-travel flex point, for longer life. One-piece welded maintenance resists torsional stress, absorbs shock loads, and delivers maximum strength while allowing easy service access to major components. For added durability, heavy-duty double-reduction planetary final drives are mounted independent of the track frames, where they’re effectively protected from shock loads. An updated LCD display monitor provides enhanced onboard diagnostics with real time values for temperature, pressure, and speed. The blade pitch is adjustable to three mount locations. The programmable return-to-pitch settings allows the operator to preset blade-pitch positions. The 1050K’s controls can be customized to meet the individual needs of an operator. John Deere’s “open-architecture” design lets customers easily employ their favorite brand of grade-control system.  1050K Crawler Dozer  JohnDeere.com
