Since the hydraulic system provides only the power required, there’s no
wasted horsepower or fuel.
Responsive steering and full 80-degree articulation increase
maneuverability in tight quarters — for fast cycle times and fewer
“three-point” turns.
Smart-shift technology ensures that gear changes are smooth as silk
regardless of whether the bucket is empty or fully loaded.
When rpms drop below 2,200, the horsepower actually goes up. The
John Deere Power Bulge advantage helps maintain good boom and
bucket speed into the pile.

1. Choose from single-lever joystick or two-lever fingertip pilot-operated controls.
Single-lever control can also be equipped with an optional fingertip FNR selector
for convenient direction and full-range gear changes. Both controls also include
John Deere’s innovative Quick-Shift feature that allows pushbutton gear changes,
one gear at a time.
2. Convenient sealed switch module gives fingertip control of numerous functions:
A. Boom height kick-out sets maximum desired dump height, while return-tocarry predetermines the lowered boom position. Use these two John Deere
advantages to speed production in repetitive loading applications.
B. Programmable clutch cutoff increases productivity in all kinds of terrain. Simply
select the slope at your dumpsite — level, small, or steep. When the brake
pedal is depressed, the transmission disconnects while keeping engine speed
high for fast boom cycles.

Large-capacity fuel tanks let you run longer between fill-ups for more
uptime and productivity.
Wet-sleeve liners provide uniform engine cooling and longer durability
than cast-in-block designs.
Service intervals for engine oil, transmission oil, and hydraulic oil have
been extended to 500, 2,000, and 4,000 hours.
Standard features such as bypass-start protection, automatic park
brake, convenient handholds, and slip-resistant steps help keep the
operator out of harm’s way.
1. Electrical distribution center utilizes highly reliable circuit-board
technology and solid-state switches, eliminating numerous wiring
harnesses, fuses, relays, and connectors.
2. Optional reversible fan automatically reverses every 30 minutes,
ejecting debris from the radiator and coolers for more uptime and
productivity. Or just hit a button to choose your own cleaning cycles.
3. Four steel plates support the far end of the boom pivot, extending
the life of the pins and protecting the boom cylinder hoses.

Available sound-suppression packages make J-Series cabs even
quieter — some by as much as 5 dBa.
Axle options include front and rear locking differentials or front
locking differential with conventional rear.

1. Equip your loader with the bucket teeth or
edges that best suit your application. Easydigging Fanggs™ teeth, interchangeable JAGZ™
edges, and special-duty Guardian Poly-Edges

* This guide, representing bucket sizes not necessarily manufactured by Deere, will help you in selecting proper bucket size for material density, loader configuration, and operating conditions. Optimum bucket size is determined
after adding or subtracting all tipping load changes due to optional equipment. The “conservative load” line on this guide is recommended when operating in conditions such as soft ground and unlevel surfaces. The “maximum
load” condition on this guide is sometimes utilized when operating on firm ground and level surfaces.

* This guide, representing bucket sizes not necessarily manufactured by Deere, will help you in selecting proper bucket size for material density, loader configuration, and operating conditions. Optimum bucket size is determined
after adding or subtracting all tipping load changes due to optional equipment. The “conservative load” line on this guide is recommended when operating in conditions such as soft ground and unlevel surfaces. The “maximum
load” condition on this guide is sometimes utilized when operating on firm ground and level surfaces.

* This guide, representing bucket sizes not necessarily manufactured by Deere, will help you in selecting proper bucket size for material density, loader configuration, and operating conditions. Optimum bucket size is determined
after adding or subtracting all tipping load changes due to optional equipment. The “conservative load” line on this guide is recommended when operating in conditions such as soft ground and unlevel surfaces. The “maximum
load” condition on this guide is sometimes utilized when operating on firm ground and level surfaces.
