DEERE - 550K Back
550K DEERE CRAWLER DOZER
HEARING IS BELIEVING
When customers talk, we listen. And when we designed our K-Series Dozers, we heard some great input. Your ideas resulted in the 450K thats 16-percent more powerful than its predecessor. Eco mode that regulates engine rpm and the hydrostatic transmission to burn up to 20-percent less fuel than previous models. Total Machine Control for customizable control of a variety of machine functions. And an optional Slope Control system that helps operators create slopes and pads with ease. We believe youll recognize a lot to like in these proven machines.
WORKDAY WARRIORS - BEEN THERE, DONE THAT
John Deere 450K, 550K, and 650K Dozers have a wealth of experience out in the real world. Whether your work is in roadbuilding, construction, mining, or land clearing, these material masters are equipped to help you get some real work done.
POWERFUL PRODUCTIVITY - STILL PUSHING THE ENVELOPE
Power turns. Counter-rotating tracks. Power management. Infinitely variable travel speeds. John Deere has been introducing productivity boosting advantages on our crawler dozers for decades. Our 450K, 550K, and 650K are loaded with performance enhancements, including Eco mode and Total Machine Control (TMC).
ON THE JOB AND IN THE ZONE - GET DOWN TO BUSINESS
You can almost feel fatigue fade inside the roomy, well-appointed cab of a 450K, 550K, or 650K. With their range of customer-inspired amenities, these dozers go quietly about the business of helping operators be comfortably productive.
BUILT TO TAKE IT ON - RUGGED AND RELIABLE
Tough conditions call for strong solutions. Our K-Series Dozers are built to tackle some of the most difficult applications you can put in front of them. When you know how theyre built, youll see what they can do for your operation.
EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV diesel meets emission regulations without loss of power or torque. Four-valve head delivers increased intake-air and exhaust-gas flow for each wet-sleeve cylinder, for long-lasting performance.
Standard Eco mode maximizes fuel usage by up to 20 percent compared to conventional torque-converter transmissions, automatically adjusting engine rpm and powertrain settings based on load, without loss of performance.
GRADE CONTROL READY
When you order your dozer with electrohydraulic (EH) controls, its grade-control ready, giving you the ability to add the grade-control system of your choice. Optional Slope Control provides in-depth factory integration and is supported by your John Deere dealer.
Optional Slope Control system provides simple-to-use grade control that allows operators to set a desired slope and hold grade through changes in existing terrain. It helps both new and veteran operators hold grade with less effort and without needing an external elevation reference.
CAB & CONTROLS
Cab-forward design allows a commanding view behind, below, and beyond the blade. Side and rear visibility from inside the cab is open to the surrounding jobsite.
Sealed-switch module (SSM) allows low-effort control of keyless start and enables exclusive features such as turbocharger cool-down, auto shutdown, and Eco mode.
Total Machine Control enables an operator to customize control of decelerator mode and response, forward/reverse ground speed, steering modulation, and forward/reverse speed ratios, and even record machine usage.
Serviceability improvements over previous models include new composite fuel tank, redesigned diagnostic lines with pressure sensors, and John Deere transmission control unit software.
Infinitely variable range to 9.7 km/h (6.0 mph) gives total flexibility to match ground speed to the load.
Transmission temperature is constantly monitored to protect the hydrostatic system. If temps get too hot or too cold, a warning light illuminates, and transmission and engine speed are automatically derated to prevent system damage.
Counter-rotation boosts productivity by enabling an operator to overcome heavy corner loads and quickly reposition the blade on the go. Provides space-saving spot turns, too.
