The E-Series articulated dump trucks (ADTs) are highlighted by an EPA Final Tier 4 John Deere PowerTech diesel engine and a pressurized cab made to keep out dust and noise.
The ADTs feature 422 hp (370E), 443 hp (410E), and 481 hp (460E). A purpose-built ZF transmission includes eight forward gears and four reverse gears, and a high-capacity retarder to increase service brake life.
The hauler axles are designed for heavy-duty applications and include on-the-fly differential locks and outboard planetaries, and each axle is independently pressure lubed and filtered. E-Series axles use internal wet disc brakes that utilize independent cooling circuits.
An integrated tire-pressure/temperature monitoring system comes standard to help maximize tire life and fuel efficiency. If pressure drops by 10%, a passive alarm appears on the monitor. Further pressure decreases or overheating result in an audible warning and an e-mail alert that is sent via JDLink.
The E-Series models are equipped with an updated 7-inch high-resolution LCD monitor for accessibility to onboard diagnostics, digital gauges, and vital system indicators — all located within arm’s reach and view during rough haul conditions.
Two ergonomically positioned sealed switch modules simplify operation and convenience controls. The auto shutdown feature turns off the engine after an owner-determined period of inactivity to reduce emissions, idle time, and subsequent wear on the power train.
Creature comforts include push-button start, low-effort push-button controls, air-suspension heated high-back seat, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, auxiliary input, satellite radio capability and stairway lights.
Centralized, true ground-level servicing eases daily maintenance and overall serviceability. All daily service can be completed from the ground. Hydraulically controlled fans with swing-out cooling packages on both sides of the engine highlight the cool-on-demand system. For dusty environments, there is a reversible fan option available for simplified cooler cleanout.
