Three updated models join John Deere’s industry-leading K-Series Four-Wheel Drive Wheel Loader lineup.

“Advancements to the K-Series-II loaders came from the brightest minds in the industry – our Customer Advocate Group,” said John Chesterman, product marketing manager for production size wheel loaders, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Armed with insights from loader owners and operators, we equipped these material movers with a Final Tier 4 solution and more robust axles, all of which is supported by the advanced diagnostics of Ultimate Uptime featuring John Deere WorkSight.”

The EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV diesel engines meet emission regulations without sacrificing power or torque. The 744K-II (303 hp), 824K-II (333 hp) and 844K-II (377 hp) are built on the Interim Tier 4/Stage IIIB solution, delivering the best combination of performance, efficiency and reliability. The technology was designed to be simple, fluid efficient, fully integrated and fully supported, employing field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
