To help you get the most from every horse under the hood and every hour in the cab, John Deere uses a dual path hydrostatic transmission and offers the largest six-way dozer blade offering in the industry on the 950 P-Tier.
Choose between an OSD configuration or a six-way PAT blade on the 950 P-Tier. Along with the six-way blade you also get an added 1724 kg (3,800 lb). of operating weight and 15 more horsepower. Equipped with a 2134 mm (184-in.) blade, the 950 P-Tier PAT provides a combination of productivity and versatility that no one can match. Appreciate the simple operation of the hydrostatic transmission which allows independent control of hydraulic and transmission functions without sacrificing power. John Deere’s entire lineup of dozers use common joysticks and a dual path hydrostatic transmission, enabling operators to be familiar and stay productive no matter the dozer size.
The optional 3D SmartGrade system will make sure you achieve target grade quickly and accurately. With an advanced ECO mode feature you will be able to improve fuel consumption without sacrificing productivity, maintaining the production you expect. ECO mode allows the machine to automatically adjusts engine speed to the engines optimal torque level; meaning the engine saves fuel when it can and provides the power when it’s needed. Standard features like auto-idle and auto-shutdown also help reduce unnecessary fuel consumption.
John Deere production dozers have the weight and power to take on your most demanding environments and thanks to John Deere’s field proven dual path hydrostatic transmission, your machine keeps power to both tracks 100 percent of the time and gives you and your operators effortless control.
Tackling tasks is simple with infinite speed control. No need to shift or manage multiple pedals. Controls are common from our small dozers to our largest, operators can be confident and comfortable from dusk to dawn and beyond.
John Deere’s load sensing power management system with dynamic braking and hill hold provide smooth operation in any situation. The machine automatically adjusts ground speed based on load which allows you to concentrate on blade control. When pushing down steep slopes the machine will maintain constant travel speed to prevent the machine from running away and if the FNR switch is moved to neutral, the machine will come to a stop.
Every operator has their own preference when it comes to “feel” of the hydraulic and transmission systems. John Deere dozers offer tunable settings that adjust response rates and speed giving you the ability to fine-tune the machine to your operator’s preference and experience.
A comfortable operating environment isn’t just an option – the right features, in the right places, let you and your operators work hard and enjoy long days on the job. John Deere large dozers offers a spacious cab with angled seat (15 degrees) for optimum comfort when using rear attachments. The updated ergonomic joysticks are common across all current John Deere dozers and include an integrated rocker switch to control travel direction. The high back seat is fully adjustable with air ride suspension along with optional heat and ventilation. The sealed switch module, including keyless start, centralizes switches and buttons into one area to keep things simple.
John Deere dozers offer a specialized waste handling package with purpose built guarding and features specifically for the waste industry. With airborne debris and various materials to handle, landfill operations pose many unique challenges. John Deere waste handler dozers reduce downtime potential, increase durability, and are built to keep material flowing in these harsh environments.
All John Deere waste handler dozers use debris management sealing to keep debris from entering the machine and a semi-u blade with integrated trash rack. The high debris perforated side shields are extruded to maximize surface area and prevent plugging along with a fan that automatically reverses to blow away debris and keep the machine running cool.
A high debris engine air precleaner is also used to maximize air flow. Additional protection is built into the engine compartment with exhaust components enclosed in heat wrap to reduce fire risks along with an alternator screen. Additional guarding is built around the final drives protecting the seals from damage as well as fender guarding that reduces risk of damage from debris following the tracks. The final drive sprockets are built with recesses to allow debris a path to escape, this deters packing and excess track tension.
Additional options are available to tackle the trash, such striker bars, a rear storage compartment, cab screens, and open center track shoes.
