Manufactured with precision at the renowned John Deere Dubuque Works, the John Deere 950K Dozer sets an industry benchmark as the largest crawler dozer boasting a six-way power/angle/tilt (PAT) blade. This exceptional feature, exclusive to the John Deere LGP (low ground pressure) track configuration, elevates dozing and finish grading to impressive levels. John Deere 950K LGP PAT Blade is actually the Largest Six-Way Dozer Blade in the world!!!
The 950K’s augmented engine power, standing at 280 horsepower, coupled with enhanced final drives, ensures uncompromised machine strength and blade speed.
John Deere 950K PAT Dozer Blade Features
The 950K with the PAT blade receives an extra 3,800 pounds of machine weight, bolstering the durability of its C-frame. High-mount design for PAT blade-lift cylinders aligns with the structures and cooling package of the 950K outside-dozer (OSD) blade, streamlining fleet maintenance and component costs.
Boasting an 8.6-cubic-yard capacity, the PAT blade empowers you to tackle dozing, grading, and material movement tasks with exceptional prowess. The hydraulic dual-tilt option allows operators to conveniently adjust blade pitch from the cab, making it ideal for applications requiring frequent pitch modifications. Programmed return-to-pitch settings enable operators to preset blade-pitch positions, easily activated with a button press.
With a substantial PAT blade width of 184 inches, each pass covers more ground, reducing the need for multiple passes.
The blade pitch, adjustable to three mount locations, becomes a breeze to control from the cab, thanks to the optional hydraulic power pitch feature. Activating preset blade-pitch positions is effortless, courtesy of the push-button-activated return-to-pitch function.
Inspired by the requirements of pipeliners, the mechanically-angled blade has been redesigned by John Deere to withstand the rigors of the most demanding applications on pipeline rights-of-way.
