The next generation has arrived
For John Deere CONEXPO/CON-AGG Show held in Las Vegas last month, was the opportunity to showcase the continued commitment to their Construction and Forestry Division. As a business they were thrilled to introduce on the world stage the new models and technology features that provide differentiated value for their customers.
The focus from John Deere moving forward is to prioritise the growth and improvement of the construction that the show allowed customers to see a full complimentary range of equipment. This included new models in the small dozer, large scraper, compact track loader, skid steer loader and cold planning attachment line-ups.
New P-Tier Small Dozers
The new P-Tier small dozer models offered precise hydraulics and smooth stability during operations to help customers level up on the job site. The 450, 550 and 650 P-Tier machines are technology-packed, offering smarter and more intuitive operations.
Models with EH controls arrive from the factory with EZ Grade features, however, they can be upgraded to Slope Control or SmartGrade technology in the future, if desired.
These new P-Tier small dozers will now feature enhancing performance and safety for operators with a strategically design cab that boasts an increase of 14%. The new cab design was aimed at improving visibility and comfort that have allowed the machine to offer increased storage space and easier ingress/egress capabilities.
Impacting operator visibility, the new hood design, straightened and lowered five-inches on 650P-Tier and seven inches on the 450 and 550 P-Tier models will help improve overall forward visibility and straight sightlines to the front of the machine.
The removal of the DEF system, the 450 P-Tier model offers simplified maintenance and reduced system complexity while meeting emissions regulations. Finally, the optional LED light package and rear-view camera options take visibility to the next level that will enhance visibility.
