  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
  • Key Features
    • Final Tier 4 engine All-new heavier-duty axles Self-adjusting wet-disc brakes Advanced onboard diagnostics
    • Load-sensing closed-center hydraulics deliver only the power required for smooth boom and bucket functions.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 Series II.Easily accessible hydraulic diagnostic ports enable quick pressure checks and minimize the possibility of introducing contaminants.The 744K-II—844K-II 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.
    • Our FT4/Stage IV diesels meet emission regulations without sacrificing power or torque. This technology is simple, fluid efficient, fully integrated, and fully supported. It employs field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy- to maintain high-uptime exhaust filters, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
    Other Features and Options
    • 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.Automatic, wet-disc, spring-applied, hydraulic-released parking brakes engages upon engine shutdown.Exclusive cycle counter helps operators manage material quantities via the monitor. Keeps track of up to five materials.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.
    • Quad-Cool™ design places coolers in a unique boxed configuration that’s isolated from engine heat, for increased efficiency and durability. Hydraulic reversing fan (standard on the 844K-II, optional on the 824K-II and 744K-II) automatically reverses at predetermined intervals, or can be programmed through the monitor, to eject debris from the cores.Swing-out, hydraulically driven, proportional fan provides unmatched access and minimizes engine load and fuel consumption by turning only as fast as necessary.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.Automatic torque-converter PowerShift™ transmission with adjustable clutch cutoff feature improves productivity.
    Serviceability and Uptime
    • All daily service points, including fuel, are grouped on the left side for quick and convenient ground-level access. Sight gauges enable quick fluid-level checks.Under-hood light, see-through reservoirs, and sight gauges simplify coolant, hydraulic, and transmission fluid-level checks.Sampling ports are color-coded for simplified service and easy to access for fast evacuation and fluid refills, resulting in increased uptime.Vertical spin-on filters allow quick, no-spill changes. 500-, 2,000-, and 4,000-hour engine, transmission, and hydraulic oil-service intervals mean fewer breaks for scheduled downtime.
    Controls and Steering
    • Choose either single-lever joystick or two-lever fingertip pilot-operated hydraulic controls. Joystick version is equipped with an F-N-R selector for convenient direction and full-range gear changes. Both include our innovative Quick-Shift feature for pushbutton 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.
    Improved Cab
    • Spacious cab provides plenty of room to stow your stuff, including a coffee cup, cooler, and other items. Standard eight-amp converter (15 and 30 amp are optional) and a 12-volt outlet provide convenient power for cell phones and other electronic devices.The quiet and spacious cab boasts generous legroom and exceptional ergonomics including fatigue-beating features like seat-mounted loader controls.Standard air-ride armchair seat adjusts multiple ways for extra comfort and cushioning over rough terrain. Premium high/wide-back heated seat with leather inserts is available.
    Sealed-Switch Module
    • Keyless start is standard equipment on K-Series models — pushing the green button on the sealed-switch module starts the engine.Keyless start allows up to 10 operator-specific standard security codes to help prevent unauthorized machine operation. Mobile JDLink™ Ultimate app enables owners to keep tabs on machine location and alerts via iPhone, iPad, or Android devices.
    • Multi-language color LCD monitor provides an easy-to-read screen with onboard diagnostics, digital gauges, and vital system-status lights.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.
    • 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.With a Base Package standard on construction machines equipped with JDLink™ Ultimate, Ultimate Uptime – featuring John Deere WorkSight™ – is a customizable dealer-delivered support solution. This flexible offering is designed to improve your profitability by maximizing productivity and uptime while lowering operating costs. Base Package includes:   Pre-delivery set-up of John Deere WorkSight including: JDLink Ultimate telematics Machine-health prognostic Remote-diagnostics and programming capability* *Charges may apply if remote diagnostics are utilized, although this is significantly less costly than a technician visit to the jobsite.
