K Series Deere loaders move to Tier 4 Final
John Deere adopts Tier 4 for loader range
John Deere’s K Series wheeled loaders have adopted Tier 4 Final emissions standards through the use of John Deere PowerTech engines. The company has also improved machine durability through the addition of standard axle cooling and filtration, the use of brake retractors and automatic adjusters to prevent wear and cut fuel consumption through brake drag. The K Series utility wheeled loaders also feature a standard five-speed lock-up torque converter transmission that is said to cut fuel use by 5-8%.
The operator is looked after thanks to the adoption of a sound suppression kit and standard air conditioning. In addition, all John Deere wheeled loaders now come with the firm’s WorkSight telematic system as standard, delivering a suite of technologies aimed at increasing productivity and cutting downtime.
