The 944K hybrid wheel loader from John Deere now features Tier 4 Final engine technology, providing customers an increase in fuel economy from the Tier 4 Interim model. Other machine updates include improving operator comfort and increasing uptime while lowering daily operating costs. Equipped with a 536-hp, John Deere PSS 13.5-liter engine, John Deere says the 944K boasts 9 to 14 percent lower fuel consumption compared to its Tier 4 Interim predecessor.
The updated engine delivers impressive torque and responsiveness to help maintain good boom and bucket speed in and out of the pile for heaped loads, the company adds. Along with the engine update, operators can expect to enjoy an increase in coast control performance. This standard feature gives the operator the capability to adjust the aggressiveness of the machine during deceleration with three different settings.
