John Deere Exhibits for First Time at bauma

PTP041519 JohnDeere

John Deere exhibited a selection of its construction equipment – including motor graders that will be sold via the Wirtgen Group's German sales and service companies and via the French sales and service company Wirtgen France SAS – at bauma 2019. A total of 14 John Deere machines were on display for the first time at the Wirtgen Group booth. John Deere acquired the Wirtgen Group in December 2017.

The recently introduced 624L wheel loader has a bucket capacity of 2.3 to 4.0 cu. meters and was shown at bauma with the standard Z-bar boom. High-Lift and High-Lift Plus Z-bar booms are also available to match the lift height needs of various applications.

For customers needing maximum visibility to their work tool, a tool carrier linkage is also available. Electrohydraulic controls enable many convenient features, such as automatic bucket vibration to fine-meter material out of the bucket, soft hydraulic stops for improved comfort, and many customizable presets.

Also on display was John Deere's largest wheel loader, the 944K. The 944K is the only wheel loader in its size class to feature a hybrid-electric drivetrain. Each wheel features a highly reliable electric motor. The 944K’s bucket capacity of 7.65 cu. meters is perfect for production-class applications, such as loading shot rock in a quarry.

These wheel loaders are sold in the U.S. and Canada and, depending on model, other select markets outside of Europe.

The 622GP and 672GP motor graders will soon be sold in Germany and France through Wirtgen Group subsidiaries. The 622GP was shown at bauma.

The first public showing of the E210 LC and E360 LC Series-II excavators also occurred at bauma. These two models are part of John Deere's 10-excavator line manufactured at its facility in Tianjin, China, and are sold in China, Russia and parts of Southeast Asia.

John Deere also exhibited six other machines sold in a variety of international markets outside Europe, including:
•    460E Articulated Dump Truck.
•    950K PAT SmartGrade and 1050K Crawler Dozers.
•    315SL Backhoe Loader.
•    312GR, 318G, and 324G Skid Steer Loaders.
•    333G Compact Track Loader.
