John Deere four-wheel-drive L-Series wheel loaders can now be equipped with a factory-installed John Deere Payload Weighing System integrated with Topcon. The Payload Weighing System, which is designed to increase productivity by maximizing the operator workflow, is available on the 744L, 824L, and 844L models.

With the system, operators can weigh as they work, reducing interruptions during the job and increasing the number of jobs they complete in a day. The system is equipped with an auto-accumulation feature, which enables the machine to automatically add each bucket load to an accumulating total.

The system enables operators to quickly achieve accurate payload targets, reducing the need to correct payloads by unloading material, while also limiting the risk of overload fines. Its overload alarm alerts the operator when the wheel loader’s payload has exceeded the user-defined limit, helping to reduce excessive tire wear.

Inside the cab, a touchscreen display shows the current payload information, eliminating guesswork, while the live tip-off function provides customers the ability to adjust the final load. The system offers the operator the ability to manage multiple active jobs and can pause active jobs when needed. This feature provides the flexibility to work between tasks, so the operator can return to unfinished jobs without starting over.
