Dozers with unbeatable power

2nd August 2022


Font size: - +

Since 1965, John Deere has produced a line of Crawler Dozer’s with an unbeatable combination of power and efficiency. The 1050K (261 kW @ 1 800 rpm) which recently touched Southern African soil for the first time, will enable your site to do more with a lot less effort. This beast is now available across our extensive John Deere dealer network. 

We understand operation efficiency and time is key, and that is why we intensively look at keeping the operator in the cab as comfortable and efficient as possible. The cab is ergonomically designed with fully customisable controls, air conditioning and extended visibility, the operator station tilts a full 70 degrees for wide-open drivetrain-component access. The one-piece welded mainframe resists torsional stress, absorbs shock loads, and delivers maximum strength while allowing handy service access to major components. 

The Power Tech™ engine delivers an excellent power-to-weight ratio to provide the traction needed to push more material. It comes Standard with “Eco Mode™” which burns up to 20% less fuel than conventional torque-converter transmissions. It automatically adjusts engine rpm and transmission settings based on load without sacrificing performance. The Dual-path Hydrostatic Transmission (HST)allows you to push a full load through turns without losing material. 

The Crawler Dozers also have various options for:

Blade Widths: 

  • Semi-U (4 149 mm),
  • U (3 987 mm), and
  • Mechanical angle (5 139 mm)


  • Extended life, and
  • Heavy-duty with sealed and lubricated tracks (SALT) have a no-nonsense oval-track design with only one wear causing forward ravel flex point, for longer life. 

Rugged rear ripper: 

  • Single shank (3 793 kg), 
  • Multiple shank (4 586 kg)

Choose the style to match your site requirements, whether your work is in road-building, quarry or mining, land clearing, site development, or general earthmoving. These machines come with standard JDLink™ telematics which provides real time utilisation data and alerts to help you maximise productivity and efficiency while minimising downtime.
