Work at your best with little effort and more control using advanced hydraulic features

Of course, John Deere production dozers have the weight and power to take on your most demanding environments. But thanks to John Deere’s field proven dual path hydrostatic transmission, your machine keeps power to both tracks 100% of the time and gives you and your operators effortless control.

John Deere’s hydrostatic transmission allows you to independently control hydraulic and transmission functions without sacrificing performance. Tackling tasks is simple with infinite speed control. No need to shift or manage multiple pedals. Controls are common from our small dozers to our largest, operators can be confident and comfortable from dusk to dawn and beyond. 

John Deere’s load sensing power management system with dynamic braking and hill hold provide smooth operation in any situation. The machine automatically adjusts ground speed based on load which allows you to concentrate on blade control. When pushing down steep slopes the machine will maintain constant travel speed to prevent the machine from running away and if the FNR lever is moved to neutral, the machine will come to a stop. 

Every operator has their own preference when it comes “feel” of the hydraulic and transmission systems. John Deere dozers offer tunable settings that adjust response rates and speed giving you the ability to fine-tune the machine to your operator’s preference and experience. 

Lower operating costs and increase expectations with fuel saving features, wide-open access for maintenance, and extended life undercarriage offerings

With and advanced ECO mode feature you will be able to improve fuel consumption without sacrificing productivity, maintaining the production you expect. ECO mode allows the machine to automatically adjust engine speed to match current load conditions, meaning engine speed is reduced when it’s not needed but available when it counts. Standard features like auto-idle and auto-shutdown also help reduce unnecessary fuel consumption.

Enjoy wide-open drivetrain component access with a cab that tilts a full 70 degrees in only minutes. In every operation uptime relies on maintenance, ensure daily checks and maintenance can be performed efficiently with same side grouped access to service points. The automatic reversing fan keeps your machine running cool with less time spent cleaning the coolers.

Looking for more out of your undercarriage? Investing in an extended life undercarriage option promises that you will reduce your operating costs and extend undercarriage wear life. John Deere’s extended life undercarriage uses SC-2™ coated bushings to provide up to twice the pin & bushing life. This lengthens the amount of run time before a “turn decision” has to be made, and in some cases may even be eliminated.

Put more power to the ground, more efficiently

Power that doesn’t get to the ground is power that’s being wasted. To help you get the most from every horse under the hood and every hour in the cab, John Deere uses a dual path hydrostatic transmission, optimized blade profile, and offers the largest six-way dozer blade in the industry.

Choose between an OSD configuration or a six-way PAT blade on the 950K. Along with the six-way blade you also get an added 3,800 lbs. of weight and extra 15 horsepower. The optional 3D SmartGrade system will make sure you achieve target grade quickly and accurately. Equipped with a 184-inch blade, the 950K PAT provides a combination of productivity and versatility that no one can match.

Appreciate the simple operation of the hydrostatic transmission which allows independent control of hydraulic and transmission functions without sacrificing power.

Expect to move more material every pass with the new blade design of the 1050K. The updated profile increases capacity to 14 cubic yards and optimizes material rolling performance.
