According to John Deere, productivity-increasing features include the fuel-efficient John Deere 6068 Tier 2 PowerTech engine with a high-pressure common rail electronic fuel injection system for improved cycle times and new Pressure Compensated Load Sensing (PCLS) hydraulic pumps with a dedicated swing pump to deliver responsive, efficient hydraulic power to all functions.
Other updates to the D-Series 335D and 437D Knuckleboom Loaders include a heavy-duty swing bearing and pinion with taller gear teeth, bew improved hydraulic manifold, new standard display monitor and auto idle, which shifts the engine into low idle when levers haven’t been operated for a few seconds, conserving fuel.
