    John Deere Launches Efficient K-Series Crawler Dozers

    John Deere is adding four models to the K-Series crawler dozer line, providing contractors an emissions-certified machine that affords higher productivity, increased uptime and lower daily operating costs in earth moving and grading applications. The 550K, 650K, 700K and 750K crawler dozers build off the popular and successful 850K that launched in 2011.

    Deere has come a long ways with their construction equipment since I first started operating in the mid 80s. The bad thing is they have done the same as CAT and build them mostly over seas.

    I know some of the dozers are at least assembled north of me in Dubuque Ia. Made/assembled/ built, all in how you want to view it.

    Deere has been building crawlers longer than there wheeled tractors for farming, construction, logging, land development. There newest line of crawlers are over 50 years of research, improvements and refinement.

    Far as the overseas stuff, thank the law makers and lawyers that have given the EPA, NAFTA, business taxation and unions the power to discourage and slow industry growth here on our own soil for any major manufacture

    Wonderful global economy
    Trees and deere just go together......

    Looks like about a 1992-4 model. I've always like the torque converter dozers.

    2011 F250 6.7 Scorpion
    Both stock for now!
