At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, John Deere will reveal new additions to its construction portfolio.
The performance tiering journey that John Deere started in 2020 is still going strong, and the company has chosen CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 as the global platform to unveil new models and technological advancements that offer differentiated value for its clients. The booth will be arranged by category and contain complementary equipment grouped according to the work that customers perform as the business places a high priority on the development and enhancement of the construction industry. New versions in the small dozer, large scraper, compact track loader, skid steer loader, and cold planing attachment lines will be introduced by John Deere.
“We are excited to debut equipment at this year’s CONEXPO/CON-AGG show, helping to expand offerings for customers seeking a smarter, more efficient job site,” said Ryan Campbell, President, Construction & Forestry Division and Power Systems, John Deere. What better way to introduce these new machines than in the presence of the users and consumers they were made for?
The new P-Tier small dozer models were created for customers seeking to level up on the work site and offer precise hydraulics and smooth stability while operating. The basic versions of the 450, 550, and 650 P-Tier machines include the entry-level solution EZ Grade with EH controls, as well as optional slope control and 2D laser capabilities. These machines are technology-rich and provide smarter, more user-friendly operations. All models are compatible with laser receivers, allowing for the use of a rotating laser to regulate slope and elevation. The P-Tier small dozers with EH controls come standard with EZ Grade features, but the owner has the option to later update to Slope Control or SmartGrade technology. The new eight-inch touchscreen cab display on EH machines provides simple navigation of the slope control and machine settings as an extra cutting-edge feature.
The new P-Tier small dozers improve operator efficiency and safety through a number of clever design decisions meant to improve visibility and comfort. The P-Tier machines provide more storage space and simpler egress/access due to their 14% larger cab than previous versions. Additionally, customers can now alter the blade’s travel direction and angle proportionally using the integrated FNR switch. The revised hood design, which affects operator visibility, has been straightened and lowered seven inches on the 450 and 550 P-Tier models and five inches on the 650 P-Tier models. This helps to increase total forward visibility and straight sightlines to the front of the machine. Additionally, the 450 P-Tier model provides streamlined maintenance and decreased system complexity while still satisfying emissions regulations due to the removal of the DEF system. Last but not least, the optional LED light package and rear-view camera options improve visibility for a more productive work site.
The John Deere 3812 large scraper, designed as an additional earthmoving tool, can be used in push load or top load applications and provides a 38-yard capacity when paired with the most recent 460 P-Tier articulated dump truck. The 3812 is the first scraper drawn by an articulated dump truck to be offered by John Deere, and it has scraper controls that are completely integrated with the 460 P-Tier ADT to boost productivity and user friendliness. The ADT and Scraper pan operate as one seamless unit once the ADT is in scraper mode, so the operator can simply get to work. In the meantime, the ADT chooses a maximum cut gear to maintain momentum and increase output while automatically optimising differential locks and engine torque curves. extra integrations include scraper brakes, Deere encoded cylinders, and a scraper pro package that provides the operator with efficiency feedback through the new high-resolution display, push-button sequencing, extra cameras, and scraper position. Finally, the platform and hitch design enable conversion between an ADT hauling a scraper or an ADT pulling a dump bin, providing customers with the highest level of fleet freedom.
On the compact front, John Deere is introducing a new generation of large frame compact track loaders and skid steer loaders in addition to extending its performance tiering strategy. Three of the five machines in this generation, including the 333 P-Tier, the brand-new 334 P-Tier skid steer loader, and the 335 P-Tier compact track loader models, will be on exhibit at the show. These vehicles have redesigned cabs with luxury features like heated/ventilated seats, touchscreen displays, hands-free Bluetooth, JDLinkTM telematics, and a choice for full view functionality. Customers who need more horsepower and hydraulic pressure from a small machine can benefit from the brand-new 334 P-Tier and 335 P-Tier, which are optimised for them. Boasting 118 gross horsepower in addition to pressure compensated load sensing hydraulics, these machines are smooth, powerful, and ready to take on the most demanding tasks. In addition to these tools, John Deere will also introduce the MK76 and the MH72D, two new mulching head attachments.
The John Deere cold planer attachments powered by Wirtgen cutting technology are also making their debut at the event. Four widths, including 18, 24, 30, and 40-inch sizes, will be available to meet customer milling requirements. These widths are compatible with some current G-series skid steer models as well as the recently announced P-Tier skid steer loaders. These cold planers offer simple in-cab controls, including tilt float activation for seamless pass matching across undulating territory, thanks to the Wirtgen Group’s decades of experience in milling technology. On-site accuracy is ensured by visible indicators for side plate depth, tilt angle, and milling drum cut boundary, and tracking milling performance is aided by an optional pressure gauge. Additionally, the cold planer frame can accommodate an optional water reservoir for easy filling, and the nozzle kit successfully reduces dust. The built-in indicators aid in monitoring the cut boundary and drum width during operation, which helps improve precision.
