Our proven lineup of production-class equipment just got bigger

Meet the 1050K's beast of a sidekick!SEE SPECIFICATIONS

DESIGNED AND ASSEMBLED IN THE U.S.A.

Designed and manufactured with state-of-the-art tools and techniques by a quality-conscious workforce at our world-class facility in Dubuque, Iowa. And it’s backed by our legendary dealer network of parts and service support.

MOVE MORE,

LOSE LESS

Dual-path hydrostatic transmission senses the load and gives you the power you need, allowing you to push a full load through turns without losing material.

HIGH-PRODUCTION PERFORMANCE

The 950K delivers the performance you need for high-production applications — with superior power, weight, and track on ground.

 

PLUG IN, CALIBRATE, AND GET TO WORK

The 950K can be equipped with a factory-installed Topcon 3D-MC2 grade-control system. It can also be ordered to accommodate Trimble and Leica systems. Simply plug in the components, calibrate, and go to work.

HAVE IT

BOTH WAYS

The hydrostatic transmission puts more power to the ground than conventional torque-converter transmissions. Plus standard Eco mode maximizes fuel economy without sacrificing performance. By adjusting engine rpm and transmission settings based on load, Eco mode burns up to 20-percent less fuel than conventional torque-converter transmissions.

LET ’ER RIP

More track on ground combined with efficient power management adds up to increased ripper productivity. Optional triple-shank ripper can be pitched on the go, which also boosts productivity.

Six-way PAT blade and SmartGrade™

This fall, a six-way power-angle-tilt (PAT) blade will be available on the 950K — a market exclusive for a dozer of this size — offering unprecedented grading performance.

 

And in 2018, we’re adding SmartGrade fully integrated grade control. This grade-control system is built into the machine cabin, structures, and software — delivering precise grading performance while eliminating vulnerable external masts and cables.

The 1050K just got an upgrade, too!

Introducing the 1050K with pipelayer-ready option.

PUT MORE WORK IN THE PIPELINE

Our new Deere-designed and -manufactured Pipelayer (PL)-ready option is available in two configurations for 170,000 lb. (PL170) and 220,000 lb. (PL220) of maximum lift capacity. PL-ready 1050K also features 12-in.-longer track for greater machine stability.

Save time at crunch time
Sideboom mounting plates and simple pin-up/ bolt-on design speed setup and installation time. Cab tilts up to 70 deg. for easy access even with the sideboom installed.
Purpose built for your specific purpose
Purpose-built cab features a comfortable seat, ergonomic controls, and a window on the roof for a clear view of the sideboom.
Penny pincher
Eco mode burns less fuel in PL applications, which tend to have more idle time.
In the trenches
Dual-path hydrostatic transmission delivers more precise control along the trench.
