John Deere debuts large dozers

Shipping to Australia this year, John Deere has introduced the next phase of its P-Tier dozers – the 950 P-Tier and the 1050 P-Tier

Replacing the large 950 K and 1050 K dozers in the market is John Deere’s next generation of P-Tier dozers.

The 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier dozers offer enhanced visibility and improved safety features, John Deere says.

“The new P-Tier machines offer the durability and reliability our customers demand from machines of this size class,” construction & forestry product marketing manager Matt Costello says.

“The 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier dozer models were updated with the customer in mind, helping them increase efficiency, visibility, and gradeability in even the most demanding conditions.”

Boasting an increase in engine power, the 1050 P-Tier features a revamped 13.6 L engine which replaces the 13.5 L engine in the 1050K.

John Deere says the new engine enhances durability, reduces fuel consumption and uses a single canister in the aftertreatment system to meet emission regulations without the need for a diesel particulate filter.

The 1050 P dozer also boasts upgrades to functionality and efficiency, including a tag link and blade design that brings the 4.27m blade 25cm closer to the frame and gives the operator a better view of blade corners during precision work.

The 950 P features John Deere’s SmartGrade system, enabling mastless 3D grade control and giving it the power for both heavy cuts and finishing grades.

Both the 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier models are now equipped with LEDs to make work easier at night or in low-light conditions.

The company says safety is taken to the next level when using these two dozers – using its Operator Prescence System.

This ensures the operator is sitting in the cab with the seat belt fastened, before the park brake is released – preventing accidental movement before the operator is buckled in.

Both new models now feature an optional heated and ventilated seat, which is air-suspended with adjustment controls.
