John Deere’s 850K crawler dozer offers a new Interim Tier 4 (IT4) engine and dual-path hydrostatics. The 205-hp 850K features the productivity, control and smoothness inherent to a dual-path hydrostatic transmission while the new IT4-certified engine allows customers to meet the latest emissions regulations and bid specifications.
The PowerTech 6.8-L IT4 diesel provides either 187-hp or 205-hp at 1,800 rpm, depending on machine configuration, and provides better low-end performance and quicker recovery when operating in the 1,500-1,800-rpm range.
Ample glass and well-positioned in-cab components provide visibility to the blade. The 850K also features a sealed switch module with keyless start, a 24-volt electrical load center, a standard storage space and a grade control monitor. An air suspension seat is standard. The 850K’s new outside dozer (OSD) blade has a three-hole blade pitch with screw-type fine-tune adjustment for infinite settings. Sloped cross-members provide lateral strength and superior visibility to the rear of the blade.
The Power-Angle-Tilt (PAT) configuration has four positions: forward, forward/mid, back/mid and back. This helps the customer to quickly set desired blade pitch for different applications. Six different 850K configurations are available: the 850K OSD, 850K WT (Wide Track) OSD, 850K LGP (Low Ground Pressure) OSD, 850K LT (Long Track) PAT, 850K WLT PAT, and 850K LGP PAT.
