John Deere recently unveiled the new 460E Articulated Dump Truck at the Conexpo-Con/Agg 2011, according to ConstructionEquipment.com.
When customers asked the company for a safe and accurate large-capacity dump truck, they responded in typical John Deere fashion by providing one of their most intuitive trucks yet. The truck is the largest articulated dump truck ever manufactured by Deere and is designed for those with heavy-duty hauling applications. It also features an on-board weighing payload scale system that utilizes an external light bar to show real-time weight data. By eliminating the guesswork and giving contractors specific numbers to work with, job sites will become more efficient and the job will be easier.
Drivers will also be able to see road patterns effects and overall driver performance metrics to allow for adjustments to save future time and money. With the help of Deere's JDLink telematics system, drivers and managers can also measure total hauls for finite periods of time.
When the 460E Articulated Dump Truck hits in 2012, farm life
will once again become infinitely easier thanks to John Deere.
