MOLINE, IL — Showcasing at bauma 2022, John Deere is excited to announce its first offering of wheel loaders in the United Kingdom and Germany. After making their debut in the United States in September of 2022, the 744 P-tier and 824 P-tier models are the first performance tiered loaders available in select European countries. As part of the Deere & Company family of brands, the Wirtgen Group will manage distribution of the P-Tier line-up through their European dealer network.

“Our customers are an integral part of our product development process and incorporating their input guides our product decisions around the globe,” said Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager for loaders and aggregates at John Deere Construction & Forestry. “That’s why we are excited to introduce the versatile and performance-enhancing P-tier models to our customers in Europe.”

The 744 P-tier and 824 P-tier loaders offer exceptional results at high levels with reliable components such as extra-durable axles and enhanced transmission capabilities. The extra-durable axles boast larger capacity front axle input bearings, axle shaft diameter and bearing size increases, and pressure lubed front input bearings designed to help reduce heat, increase component life, and boost overall machine reliability.

The P-tier transmission includes a standard lockup torque converter, which adds additional torque during operation and improves fuel economy while transporting materials. The improved lockup logic increases performance and shift quality, while the updated speed sensors improve low torque shifting and downshift, improving performance when going into piles. Both loaders come equipped with the John Deere 9.0-liter engine that increases horsepower while minimizing fuel consumption for a robust performance overall.

Aimed to simplify serviceability, the 744 P-tier and 824 P-tier loaders feature ground level servicing, including a remote engine oil dip stick, and improved electrical and hydraulic routing, getting your machine back on the job sooner. The optional auto lube system ensures automatic greasing takes place while the machine is operating for more effective grease distribution.

The redesigned interior cab gives the operator more space, extra storage and enhanced visibility supporting the overall machine and operator safety on the job. Optional features that improve operator comfort and experience include heated and ventilated seats with increased adjustment capabilities, an upgraded HVAC system, and additional power ports and aux mounting capabilities inside the cab.  The P-tier machines were also designed with productivity-enhancing features such as and EH controls with multifunction programmable buttons to offer optimal performance on the job.

These models include a variety of industry-proven technology solutions such as an Advanced Vision System and Advanced Obstacle Detection capabilities for improved visibility and increased situational awareness. JDLink™ connectivity is offered as a standard feature on the P-tier wheel loader models, enabling machine communications and remote support from dealers. Lastly, the Payload Weighing System, which is designed to increase productivity by maximizing the operator workflow, is available as an optional enhancement on P-tier models.
