The Industry Exclusive E- Drive 944X -Tier Wheel Loader!

Are you ready to witness power, sustainability and reliability like never before? It’s earned the title ‘King of the Load’ for a reason! Backed by expertise and inspired by the best minds in the industry, the 944X-Tier offers unmatched features to elevate each and every job to the highest level!

A machine designed from the combination of expertise and inspiration, equipped with a E-Drive system that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before! Featuring the John Deere PowerTech™ engine, AC generator motors, solid-state power inverters, and water-cooled brake resistors, that deliver reliable, long-term performance.

With a Net Peak Power of 400 kW (536 hp) at 1,600 rpm and a Net Peak Torque of 2530 Nm (1,866 lb.-ft.) at 1,400 rpm, it's ready to take on any challenge!

Yes, you heard right – AC generators and motors! With electronic wheel motors and final drives designed to last over 30,000 hours, this machine isn’t just about getting the job done; it’s about doing it efficiently and sustainably, with minimal downtime and maximum performance.

Built for Savings:

Let’s talk about cost efficiency. By ditching traditional components like axles and transmissions, the 944X-Tier minimizes maintenance and replacement costs. And when it comes to midlife events, you’re looking at savings of around 50-60% compared to rebuilding a conventional-drive machine. It’s not just about saving money; it’s about making your investment count.

Where Does it Shine?

This isn’t your average loader. With its impressive pushing power and quick ramp-climbing ability, the 944X Tier is your go-to for loading trucks and feeding crushers in quarries and production facilities. The flow-sharing hydraulic system ensures extremely fast cycle times and boom-raise times, making short work of any task. Each boom and bucket function has its own hydraulic pump, ensuring quick and smooth operation and accelerated truck loading.

Delving deeper into the fascinating E-Drive system:

The E-Drive system, short for Electric Drive system, is a groundbreaking innovation that revolutionizes how power is generated and utilized in heavy machinery like the 944X.

It captures and stores kinetic energy during braking and downhill descents, then uses this energy to assist hydraulic functions through electric motors, reducing fuel consumption and increasing efficiency.

Additionally, it enhances traction control, reduces maintenance, and minimizes environmental impact by optimizing energy usage and reducing emissions. In essence, the E-Drive system transforms the 944X-Tier into a more efficient, reliable, and eco-friendly machine for heavy-duty applications.

Beyond Exceptional:

With features like traction and rim pull control, it’s always got your back, no matter the conditions. And with its spacious cab, optional premium LED lighting package, and ground-level service access points, it’s designed with your comfort and convenience in mind.

For those wondering:

Traction Control: Automatically limits torque to any wheel when slippage occurs, boosting machine traction in poor underfoot conditions and extending tire life.

Rim pull Control: Limits torque on the wheels in slick working conditions, preventing tire spin and slicing.

Coast Control: Dynamic braking in a hydrostatic transmission, slowing the loader without touching a pedal and helping reduce service-brake component wear.
