John Deere Updates E-Series Articulated Dump Trucks

John Deere's 370E, 410E and 460E articulated dump truck (ADTs) have been updated with a Tier 4 Final PowerTech diesel engine and a pressurized Deere-designed cab – both of which combine to boost productivity and uptime, while minimizing daily operating costs.

“Efficiency and productivity are boosted by standard best-in-class diff lock and powerful transmission retarder; while safety is paramount through ground-level daily service, auto horn, rollover protection and remote park-brake release,”said Mark Shea, ADT product consultant, John Deere Construction & Forestry. 

JD_460E_1Designed and built in Dubuque and Davenport, Iowa, the E-Series ADTs feature 422 hp (370E), 443 hp (410E) and 481 hp (460E). A purpose-built ZF transmission includes eight forward gears and four reverse gears, and a high-capacity retarder to increase service brake life. In addition, the John Deere hauler axles are designed for heavy-duty applications and include on-the-fly differential locks and outboard planetaries, and each axle is independently pressure lubed and filtered. The E-Series axles use internal wet disc brakes that utilize independent cooling circuits.

Other features include:

  • ultra quiet, sealed, pressurized cab
  • low-effort push-button controls
  • air-suspension heated high-back seat
  • 7-inch high-resolution LCD monitor 
  • auto shutdown feature turns off the engine after an owner-determined period of inactivity 
  • integrated tire-pressure/temperature monitoring system 
  • centralized, ground-level servicing.
