When you weigh all your options, you'll choose a 1050K.
We don't take our customers' opinions lightly. So when owners and operators like you weighed in with fresh insights on our reimagined 1050K Dozer, we listened and responded with additional weight and power for more productivity. Other enhancements include an EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV diesel engine for work in nonattainment areas. And a new EcoMode that regulates engine rpm to burn up to 25-percent less fuel. Plus the unsurpassed visibility, operating ease, responsiveness, and reliability you've come to expect from our crawlers. When you compare it to other crawlers in its class, the 1050K is the obvious choice. Stack the deck in your favor — learn more by contacting your John Deere dealer.
• EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV diesel delivers impressive power, torque, and drawbar pull for work in nonattainment areas and unsurpassed productivity.
• Eco mode regulates engine rpm to burn up to 25-percent less fuel.
• Dual-path hydrostatic transmission ensures smooth moves and allows you to push a full load through turns without losing material.
• Total Machine Control (TMC) allows you to customize decelerator mode and response, forward/reverse groundspeed, steering modulation, and forward/reverse speed ratios for superb control.
Our FT4/Stage IV diesels meet emission regulations without sacrificing power or torque. We built on our Interim Tier 4 (IT4)/Stage IIIB solution to deliver the best combination of performance, efficiency, and reliability. This technology is simple, fluid efficient, fully integrated, and fully supported.
It employs field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
Cooling package is designed to perform in all conditions, including high ambient temperatures. Reversing fan automatically back-blows the cooler cores at preset intervals. When conditions demand more frequent cleaning, simply press a button to actuate the reversing cycle.
Auto-idle automatically reduces engine speed when the machine is not moving and no functions are active. Exclusive auto shutdown turns off the engine after extended inactivity.
Standard EcoMode automatically adjusts engine power and transmission settings based on load while maintaining ground speed, to help optimize fuel economy with no loss of productivity.
Sealed hydraulic and hydrostatic reservoirs are separate, eliminating any possibility of cross-contamination.
Accessible, clean-hose routing and sleeve protection for cylinder lines to guard against accidental damage on the jobsite.
When you order your dozer grade-control ready, adding a grade-control system is as easy as plugging in the components, calibrating, and going to work, whether your preferred system is Trimble or Topcon.
Deluxe suspension high-back seat is angled 15 deg. to provide a more comfortable view of the ripper. The seat adjusts seven ways for daylong comfort. Arm- and footrests are also fully adjustable to fit any size operator.
Cab-forward design provides a commanding view behind, below, and beyond the blade. Side and rear visibility is also unobstructed. Numerous directional vents keep the glass clear and interior comfortable. For models equipped with only a Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS), an optional under-seat heater helps warm the operator.
Beyond cup holders and cooler storage, there are plenty of places to store stuff. If you’re running a grade-control system, the lockable in-dash compartment is ideal for end-of-day storage (or permanent placement) of the monitor. Overhead radio and storage console includes a 12-volt electrical outlet for powering a cell phone or an iPod®.
Ease of Control
Ergonomically correct joystick provides intuitive, low-effort control of steering, direction, and ground speed. It’s detented so it doesn’t require an operator’s constant touch or attention, and employs a thumb-actuated travel-speed control switch.
Ergonomic T-bar hydraulic control precisely meters flow for a natural "feel" and provides advanced optimum blade control that will enhance any operator’s grading skills. Blade response is powerful and quick.
Auxiliary hydraulic control is console mounted with a two axis thumb control and an integrated hand hold. Customers will appreciate the integrated handhold design when operating a rear attachment and looking towards the rear of the machine, as it allows them to place weight on the joystick and better hold their position without accidentally activating the machines auxiliary functions.
Sealed-switch module (SSM) gives fingertip control of keyless start. Touchpad security system requires a numeric pass code (when enabled) to help prevent unauthorized machine operation.
