John Deere Launches New D-Series Skid Steers and CTLs With Customer-Inspired Features
- Side-by-side cooler design – eliminating the pressure drop inherent with stacked coolers along with the debris build-up and cleaning issues.
“The cooling system will be a huge benefit to productivity and uptime, because it runs cleaner longer and is easier to maintain, and that will help keep daily operating costs down,” Zupancic said.
Power and Customizable Precision
“Customers asked us if they could adjust the maximum speed and sensitivity of the boom and bucket when operating in a specific application,” Zupancic said. “They also asked for a Creeper mode to slow down wheel speed independently of the engine speed. So we created the enhanced operator productivity option, called the EH Performance Package, where the operator can make adjustments to create a machine that perfectly fits his application or skill level.”
The EH (electro hydraulic) Performance Package includes switchable controls from the ISO to H pattern, the creeper mode in which the operator can set wheel or track speed in 10-percent increments of the unit’s top speed, and boom and bucket metering, with three different speed settings: Precision/economy (slow), Utility (medium) and Production (fast).
Deere engineers have also made adjustments to the mid-frames in the skid steer and CTL line, the 318D, 320D (skid steers), 319D and 323D (CTLs), which allows them to dump into a 10-ft. sidewall dump truck, thanks to an average of four more inches of lift height at the hinge pin. An EH joystick option is also now available.
The D-Series keeps many of the productivity features popular from the 300 Series, including planetary gear drives on the CTLs for increased pushing power and reliability, and industry-leading bucket roll-back and dump angles – retained even while increasing boom and bucket breakout forces.
