John Deere Premieres Next Phase of P-Tier Dozers With the 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier Models

MOLINE, Ill.— Improving its product portfolio of large dozer offerings, John Deere introduces the 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier dozers as part of its performance tiering strategy. Previously in market as the 950K and 1050K, these robust machines are the next generation of models to join the increasing lineup of John Deere P-Tier dozers. The new 1050 P-Tier dozer boasts an increase in engine power and a redesigned hood and front-end design. In addition, both the 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier offer enhanced visibility and improved safety features, positioning them as an ideal solution for operators aiming to boost productivity and protection on the jobsite.

"John Deere is dedicated to providing its customers with large dozer options that fit the needs of every job site, and the new P-Tier machines offer the durability and reliability our customers demand from machines of this size class," said Matt Costello, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "The 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier dozer models were updated with the customer in mind, helping them increase efficiency, visibility, and gradeability in even the most demanding conditions."

The strategic design enhancements of the new P-Tier dozer models aim to improve operator safety, visibility on the job, and uptime. Now equipped with standard LEDs, operator efficiency has been significantly improved during night-time or low-light operations. Also helping to improve uptime, the cold weather hydraulic lines are specially tailored for cold climate operations. These hoses, which replace the standard option, are rated for lower temperatures, ensuring smooth hydraulic function in harsh winter and weather conditions. The cab of the 950 P-Tier and 1050 P-Tier can be tilted for easy serviceability access under the cab.

Taking safety to the next level, the Operator Presence System ensures that an operator is present in the seat of the cab, with the seat belt fastened, before the park brake can be released. This ensures a critical layer of safety, preventing accidental movement or operation before the operator is buckled in. The P-Tier system also integrates the park brake switch into the system status monitor, eliminating the need for traditional park lock levers. This integration not only streamlines the operation process but also enhances the overall safety mechanism of the machine.John Deere introduces the 950 and 1050 P-Tier large dozer models.
