FT4/Stage IV-compliant 6.8-L John Deere PowerTech™ engine boasts a boost in horsepower and standard Eco mode, for maximum fuel economy without loss of performance.

Auto-idle helps save fuel by reducing engine speed when the crawler loader is not moving and no functions are being activated.

Dual-path hydrostatic (HST) transmission allows you to carry a full load through turns without losing material.

HST drivetrain and load-sensing hydraulics deliver fatigue-beating, low-effort response and control, at all times and in all conditions.

Hydraulically driven fan runs only as needed, for cooling and fuel efficiency.

Counter-rotating tracks boost maneuverability on crowded jobsites.

Infinitely variable speed range to 6.2 mph

Single-lever joystick or two or three-lever hydraulic controls - choose the layout that best fits your operator’s style.

Control the throttle using buttons on the sealed-switch module.

Heavy-duty undercarriage is sealed, lubricated, and built to last.

Swing-out side shields and tilt-out grille enable access to both sides of the coolers, for low effort debris removal.
