Deere’s loader follows emissions rules

Contracting firm J.H. Reid, South Plainfield, New Jersey, takes delivery of the first John Deere 744K IT4 wheel loader.

When New Jersey Contracting Firm J.H. Reid wanted a wheel loader to allow it to work in Brooklyn, New York, under current and future emissions rules, John Deere found a solution: the new 304-horsepower 744K 4WD loader.

Deere’s new loader is the construction industry’s first IT4-certified iron with more than 175 horsepower. Reid took delivery in late August and immediately put the loader to work on a $125-million, pre-cast bridge job for the New Jersey DOT in Highlands. The loader will head to Brooklyn later this month.

The 744K’s 9.0-L IT4 diesel engine uses cooled exhausted gas recirculation technology to meet emissions regulations, while producing the same torque as a 744K equipped with a Tier 3 engine.
