John Deere recently expanded its Performance Tiering Strategy to its line-up of articulated dump trucks. New to the P-Tier portfolio, the 410 and 460 ADTs retain the same fuel efficiency, dump body, and drive modes as the previous E-II models. For all P-Tier models, additional updates to the external styling and interior cab layout modernize the fleet while maintaining the productivity these trucks have become known for. These machines also feature a range of standard onboard settings to help ease operation and increase efficiency during any application.
Helping to provide more customization, customers can choose from two different trim levels, as well as add a variety of optional packages including packages for enhanced operator comfort, cold weather conditions, debris management and maintenance and service capabilities.
The first trim package option offers familiar features such as a black exhaust stack, manually adjusted rear view mirrors and temperature controls, a standard seat and radio, a 15-amp converter and halogen vehicle lights. Providing elevated creature comforts and controls, the second trim package offers a chrome exhaust stack, power adjusted rear view mirrors, a premium seat and radio, a 25-amp converter, automatic temperature control in the operator’s station and LED vehicle lights.
Standard on the P-Tier ADTs, a variety of owner and operator settings help ease operation and increase jobsite safety. These 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.
