- John Deere PowerTech™ employs external cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easily maintained exhaust and in-line diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) filters, and variable-geometry turbocharger (VGT).
- Conserve power and fuel with engine, hydraulic, transmission, and service-brake coolers that run only when necessary. Reversible hydraulic-drive fan option back-blows cooler cores, minimizing the need for manual cleaning.
- The system notifies operators of condition-based ash-service intervals for the diesel particulate filter (DPF) before service is required.
- Optional onboard weighing system displays the payload while loading and even illuminates external mirror-mounted load lights to alert the operator and job superintendent when the ADT is nearing capacity. Load tonnage is also accessible through JDLink™, so you can monitor productivity from virtually anywhere.
- Quiet, pressurized cab features a new easy-to-read monitor and rear-camera display, along with options such as automatic temperature control (ATC) system that allows operators to simply select a desired temperature to get and stay comfortable.
- Stairway lights can be turned on and off by pushing a button from ground level. They’ll also turn off automatically after a predetermined length of time.
- Standard high-back air-suspension seat adjusts multiple ways for all-day support. Opt for the premium heated/ventilated seat with heavy-duty air-suspension and adjustable seat pan for additional comfort.
- Filters, diagnostic ports, and hydraulic oil reservoir are easy to access. An industry-leading feature, Deere machines can be checked and serviced daily from the ground, eliminating the need for tie-offs — a big advantage on Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)-regulated sites.
- Optional factory-installed auto-lube system with ground-level refill is electrically powered and integrated with machine diagnostics to help verify daily maintenance is being performed.
- Fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) refills are also easily accessible at ground level.
Standard tire pressure/temperature-monitoring system helps maximum tire life and fuel efficiency. A passive alarm appears on monitor if pressure drops by 10 percent.
Three drive modes enable easy customization by both inexperienced and veteran operators for a variety of conditions:
- Normal mode for everyday operation.
- Eco mode that, when conditions allow, conserves fuel by managing engine power delivery as well as optimizing transmission response for those conditions.
- Traction mode, which optimizes differential lock for maximum tractive effort in soft and slippery ground conditions.
Routing of the electrical and hydraulic systems has been significantly simplified to improve reliability. Reduction of hose length and number of connections — 10% fewer than E-Series models — considerably minimizes system complexity.
