After a successful introduction at Conexpo-Con, the new John Deere 460E ADT joins the 370E and 410E as part of the cutting-edge E-Series. The E-Series ADT is customer driven dump trucks with operator friendly control which have been developed in cooperation with road builders, site developers, and the mining, quarry and aggregate segments. This allowed creating three trucks that are purpose-built to reliably handle various payloads and move materials faster and more efficiently on any jobsite in the world.
Here we get to the technical filling of the E-Series. ADTs feature a John Deere PowerTech™ 13.5L IT4 engine with three power levels based on the model – 422 hp as for 370E, 443 hp for 410E, and 481 hp for 460E model. The engines are complemented with ZF transmission which includes a high capacity retarder, eight forward gears and four reverse gears. In addition, the new John Deere hauler axles are designed for heavy-duty applications and include on-the-fly differential locks, outboard planetaries and each axle is independently pressure lubed and filtered. One of the biggest customer inspired enhancements are the on the fly differential locks that can be applied at any speed, manually or automatically, for improved performance in poor conditions. What allows inexperienced operator to handle the dump truck without difficulties.
