John Deere has introduced a new 850K crawler dozer with an interim Tier 4 engine and dual-path hydrostatics, according to a press release.
The 205 horsepower 850K is built with earthmoving contractors in mind and includes viscous cab mounts that reduce noise for the operator's ear by up to 45 percent. The new IT-4 certified engine is also built to maintain the most recent emission regulations and building specifications.
Like other Deere products being unveiled as of late, the product was made with contributions from both Deere employees and outside individuals that regularly work with the equipment.
"We collaborated with the engineers the whole way and they responded to our needs by making the changes we suggested in the cab, in the cooling system, everywhere," said veteran crawler operator Rob Anderson.I was extremely proud when I saw the 850K roll off the line. Deere hit a home run and I'm thrilled to have been involved."
Because of quality machine manufacturers like John Deere, farm life
is continually evolving and becoming more efficient than ever before.
