John Deere Power Systems 4.5L engines are designed with replaceable cylinder liners for superior cooling, reduced oil breakdown, and reduced ring wear. This means cooler engine components and longer life as compared to cast-in-block designs.
Standard John Deere PowerShift™ Transmission provides smooth, on-the-fly, clutch-free gear shifts.
True four-wheel drive on command. Standard limited-slip mechanical-front-wheel drive delivers superior traction in any ground condition. Engage momentary mechanical-front-wheel drive “on the fly” with the touch of a button on the new loader control.
Cab and Controls
L-Series pilot towers provide more legroom and additional space for transitioning between loader and backhoe operation. Palm-on-top loader-control grip makes operation even easier with integrated electric clutch disconnect and momentary MFWD.
An additional 10–15 percent increase in craning capacity is activated through Lift Mode at the push of a button on the convenient sealed switch module.
Ride control, front loader hydraulic cylinders act as a shock absorber, smoothing travel over rough terrain.
Same-side, ground-level service points help speed daily checks and fills. Other common-sense features such as quick-change filters, extended service intervals, simple-to-read sight gauges, and easy-access grease zerks help increase uptime and lower daily operating costs.
Machine-security system with touchpad passcode helps prevent unauthorized operation.
