For serious productivity, get an 844K Series II Wheel Loader. Like all of the K-Series, our biggest loader was designed by employing big ideas from customers. Enhancements include all-new heavier-duty axles with traction-boosting locking differential and auto-engagement options for fewer spin-outs and reduced tire wear. And six-percent more full-turn tip-load capacity, plus a wider stance when equipped with optional low-profile tires — for even more stability. But not everything is new. You’ll continue to profit from advantages such as Quad-Cool™ with reversing on-demand fan, smooth-shifting SmartShift transmission, advanced diagnostic monitor, and ride control, to list just a few.
Excavator-style hydraulics sense the load and deliver the flow needed for smooth, combined functions and fast work cycles.The in-tank filter with large element traps that hold contamination allow for cleaner oil, a cleaner hydraulic system, and less maintenance. Service intervals are extended to 4,000 hours. The hydraulic filter is a common part for the 444K—844K.Easily accessible hydraulic diagnostic ports enable quick pressure checks and minimize the possibility of introducing contaminants.The 744K—844K have two hydraulic pumps. The main hydraulic pump is mounted to the transmission and driven at engine speed. The hydraulic system is closed center and load sensing. All loaders utilize a variable-displacement axial-piston pump. A diagnostic quick-coupling is provided for testing load-sensing pressure.
The EPA IT4-certified engine provides the same horsepower and torque as that of a Tier 3 engine. The IT4 engine utilizes an automatic regeneration process which periodically cleans the filter without impacting machine productivity.
The cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology is simple, fuel efficient, field proven, fully integrated, and fully supported. It features a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to reduce particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides. The DPF traps particulate matter and ash. The DPF service interval is 5,000 hours.
Z-Bar linkages provide high bucket breakout forces, good rollback to carry loads without spilling, and very solid stability. With pin-on attachment or attachment coupler. A Z-Bar loader with an attachment coupler adds versatility, reduces cost when used in a variety of applications, enables fast cycle times, and lowers operating weights.
Parallel lift that's simply unparalleled. Our innovative design separates the bell crank from the cross tube, attaching instead to the loader frame via a Y-shaped link. This free-floating bell-crank design allows load forces to work with, not against, the boom for big breakout force, even in difficult digging. Impressive torque throughout the entire dump and rollback range enables these loaders to excel at a wide variety of material-handling tasks.
Hi-vis and Worksite Pro™ couplers let you change attachments from the cab quickly and easily. Go from bucket to forks to whatever, and do more with one machine.
High-Lifts provide high bucket breakout forces, good rollback to carry loads without spilling, and very solid stability with lighter materials. High-Lift is recommended for high-sided truck and hopper applications.
The NeverGrease™ option includes a pin-joint system for the linkage and boom joints that eliminates greasing, extends pin-joint life, and provides consistent life across the system.
NeverGrease pin joints remain tight longer for more productive operation.
The NeverGrease system utilizes self-lubricating bushings along with chrome-plated pins to form the pin joint. Roller-bearing bushings are sealed and lubricated for life. They are used at the boom-to-bucket joint of the 744K—844K. The rest of the joints on the 744K—844K use the filament-wound bushing.
Filament-wound bushings are used on all joints of the 544K—724K Loaders. This is a self-lubricating, Teflon®-embedded element.

Quad-Cool™ places the radiator, air-conditioner condenser, intercooler, and hydraulic, transmission, and optional axle coolers in a unique boxed bulkhead configuration that's isolated from engine heat. The system utilizes large, three-mm perforated side shields to pre-screen the air and decrease air velocity to minimize debris ingestion.
Swing-out, hydraulically driven, proportional fan provides unmatched access and minimizes engine load and fuel consumption by turning only as fast as necessary.
Unique Quad-Cool system provides wide-open access to both sides of the coolers for easy clean-out.
For heavy airborne-debris applications, the optional reversing fan back-blows the cooling system at 120-percent fan speed at programmable increments from 20–40 minutes to keep things running clean and cool. The operator can spend more time moving dirt and less time cleaning plugged coolers.
You'll immediately notice smooth shifting in all gears. John Deere's Smart Shift technology adapts to speed and load for the industry's smoothest shifts. Transmission recalibrates to like-new shifting from the monitor.
Optional 5-speed transmission with torque-converter lockup in gears 2–5 increases acceleration, speeds cycles, and optimizes power and fuel efficiency during transport, roading, and ramp climbing.
Controls are integrated into the seat for improved operator interface, controllability, and reduced fatigue.
Joystick FNR selector provides convenient direction and full-range gear changes. Both include innovative quick-shift feature for push-button gear changes, one gear at a time.
Speed-sensitive, low-effort joystick steering reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity. Joystick steering is ideal for V-pattern truck loading. Standard on the 844K and available on the other K-Series models, it adapts to ground speed to deliver smooth low-effort control. Even during load-and-carry.
The new steering tower pivots at the floor and makes entering and exiting the cab far easier. Not to mention the additional 3.5 inches of legroom in the 744K—844K, for added comfort. Additional knee room and position selections, too.
Unsurpassed color monitor provides an easy-to-read LCD screen with onboard diagnostics, digital gauges, and vital system-status lights.
Enhanced onboard diagnostics reveal speeds, pressures, temperature readings, and real-time switch status, so technicians and customers can quickly troubleshoot problems. An embedded payload scale lets you monitor each bucket weight.
Simple, easy-to-use payload weighing, powered by Loadrite™ technology, is integrated into the LCD color monitor and is available factory- or field-installed for Z-Bar and High-Lift machines.
Rear camera with radar object detection will alert the operator of any object that is in a direct path with the loader while backing up.
Standard equipped with JDLink™ Ultimate, you have 24/7-anywhere computer access to your truck’s location, utilization, tonnage totals, monitor alerts, fuel-consumption diagnostics, and hours. Plus geofencing, curfew, and numerous other capabilities.
The integrated tire-pressure monitor helps maximize tire life and fuel efficiency. You can easily check tire pressure via the Internet with JDLink.
