The introduction of John Deere’s new D-Series skid steer loaders and compact track loaders (CTLs) is the culmination of years of careful research and a partnership with skid steer owners and operators from around the world – all to ensure D-Series operators have the comfort, features and performance needed to do their best work.

“We’ve listened to what customers told us they wanted in skid steer and compact track loaders, and we’ve responded with nine new models that incorporate their suggestions,” said Gregg Zupancic, Deere’s product marketing manager for skid steers and compact track loaders.

One of the most dramatic differences in the D-Series is the cab. “Customers have been asking us for more comfortable cabs similar to those found on larger pieces of Deere equipment, so we’ve introduced an all-new operating environment,” Zupancic said.

As a result of further customer suggestions, Deere’s D-Series contains several industry firsts. “Operators asked us why they can’t get more ‘big machine’ features in skid steers and CTLs, in addition to the bigger, more comfortable cab,” Zupancic explained. “We think they’re right and that’s why we’ve responded with items like the auto idle, an optional reversing hydraulic fan, and an innovative V-Plenum cooling system that provides significantly more cooling capacity and performance.”

  1. Whoa. Nine new models for a new series is pretty impressive. I just hope the competitors won't be able to easily adapt the technology that John Deere incorporated in their machines to stay ahead of the playing field.
