Deere Updates Three Wheel Loader Models

Deere is promoting the "added durability, productivity, increased uptime and lower daily operating costs" of its K-Series 4WD Wheel Loaders, which now meet Final Tier 4 emissions standards.

Advancements in the 744K-II, 824K-II, and 844K-II came from the company's customer advocate group, said John Chesterman, product marketing manager, to equip the machines with the Final Tier 4 engines, improved axles and advanced telematics.

The 744K-II (303 hp), 824K-II (333 hp) and 844K-II (377 hp) are built on the Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB solution and designed to be simple, fluid efficient, fully integrated and fully supported, employing field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).

The K-Series-II loaders come equipped with larger, higher-capacity axles (744K-II & 824K-II) with standard cooling and filtration, and on-the-fly engageable front differential lock giving operators heavy-duty traction. For added protection, axle oil is filtered by continuously cleaning wear particle and debris out of the oil. Together, this system provides increased axle reliability, durability and longevity.

The models are payload scale (LOADRITE L2180) ready, which provides operators with on-board payload data and is integrated into the telematics system for remote viewing and analysis. All John Deere wheel loaders come standard with John Deere WorkSight telematics for increasing uptime and productivity while lowering operating costs.
