New P-Tier Articulated Dump Trucks for John Deere
By Catrin Jones01 February 2023
John Deere has expanded its P-Tier portfolio with the 410 and 460 Articulated Dump Trucks. The company says that both trucks retain the same fuel efficiency, dump body, and drive modes as the previous E-II models.
The US-based company says that all P-Tier models include additional updates to the external styling and interior cab layout to modernise the fleet while maintaining productivity.
The machines also feature a range of standard onboard settings which are said to help ease operation and increase efficiency during any application.
As standard on the P-Tier ADTs, John Deere says that a variety of owner and operator settings can help ease operation and increase job site safety. Onboard features, such as rollover protection, downhill dump protection, frame protection, hill hold, shuttle shifting and descent control help eliminate some of the operator inputs, enabling simplified operation.
Additionally, the machine’s dump body limits, standard transmission warm-up cycle, and max speed limits, help to keep the operator and machine safer and up and running for longer.
“The P-Tier models were built with the operator in mind to support ease of use and operator comfort,” says Justin Steger, solutions marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry.
“Redesigning the layout of the components in the cab and grouping features together and packaging them in a meaningful way based on the application are a couple of examples of how we’re incorporating customer feedback and delivering further improvements.”
