By Adam FreillConstruction Equipment
John Deere’s 744 P-tier, 824 P-tier, 844 P-tier and 904 P-tier wheel loaders are now available as part of its performance tiering strategy. The large wheel loaders are designed to offer advanced productivity features, increased jobsite reliability, optimal operator comfort, and enhanced serviceability to help improve machine uptime.
“Whether the machines are working at the face or loading trucks, John Deere customers can be confident that the P-tier machines will provide exceptional performance all day – even in the most rugged applications,” said Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager. ”Building upon the improvements introduced on the L-series loaders in 2019, the P-tier models incorporate even more technology advancements, providing our customers with a line of dependable and strong wheel loaders to meet the demands of the aggregates industry.”
Included in base-model P-tier wheel loaders are a variety of features aimed to increase performance on the job. High-capacity, heavy-duty axles with standard axle cooling filtration deliver durability in difficult conditions compared to previous models. The machines’ electrohydraulic (EH) controls with multifunction programmable buttons offer the highest level of operator comfort, while the material-handling buckets with integrated spill guards and curved side cutters make for easier and more intuitive operation.
All P-tier Wheel Loader models also include technology options such as an Advanced Vision System and an Advanced Obstacle Detection System for improved visibility and increased situational awareness. The new higher resolution digital cameras, dedicated display, and escalating audible alerts inform operators when obstacles are in the path of their machine. This feature also overlays a projected vehicle reversible path within the same dedicated monitor, enhancing the operator’s experience and control.
JDLink connectivity is offered as a standard feature on the P-tier Wheel Loader models, enabling machine communications and remote support from dealers. These features, coupled with premium cab comfort options and included visibility enhancements, ensure operators remain productive throughout the day.
