John Deere’s 524K-II, 544K-II, and 624K-II utility-class wheel loaders were developed for projects that require enhanced agility and ability and feature 10% improved fuel economy.

The updated utility wheel loader lineup offers new standard five-speed transmissions with optimized gear ratio changes. The wheel loaders, with the John Deere PowerTech EPA Final Tier 4 diesel engines, can be used even in nonattainment areas.

The PowerTech engines deliver 130 hp (524K-II), 163 hp (544K-II ), and 186 hp (624K-II) to help sustain stable boom and bucket speed in and out of the pile for heaped loads, even in wet or hard-packed material. Featuring reduced engine RPM during high fuel usage operations, the wheel loaders also boast excavator-style hydraulics that sense loads and deliver the flow needed for smooth combined functions and fast work cycles. The K-Series also offers increased hydraulic pump displacement to accommodate lower engine speeds.

The 524K-II and 544K-II offer brake retractors to reduce brake drag to improve overall axle life. The new models are also equipped with remote battery terminals for faster and easier jump-starting.

The loaders include enhanced malfunction monitor with diagnostic and maintenance information, tinted glass, and a Level 1 sound suppression package reduces engine noise. Reduced noise decreases operator fatigue and increases productivity on jobsites that are in or around areas that have noise restrictions.

With Ultimate Uptime featuring John Deere WorkSight, operators receive predelivery and follow-up inspections. three years of JDLink telematics, and the ability to add dealer-provided uptime solutions to customize the package to individual needs.
