Power and Performance in 460 P-Tier Dump Truck for John Deere

John Deere

John Deere has redesigned the 460 P-Tier Dump Truck to deliver the power, productivity and performance needed in Australian quarries.

John Deere designed the articulated dump truck (ADT) to meet the evolving needs of its customers.

Powerful and efficient

At the heart of the 460 P-Tier Dump Truck lies a robust and fuel-efficient engine, which generates the torque and horsepower to tackle the most demanding tasks easily. Equipped with an advanced engine management system, the 460 P-Tier optimises torque curves and differential locks while selecting the ideal gear ratio, ensuring maximum productivity and fuel efficiency. Whether traversing rugged terrains or hauling heavy loads, this ADT is designed to excel in challenging conditions.

Seamless integration

What sets the John Deere 460 P-Tier Dump Truck apart is its seamless integration with the 3812 large scrapers, offering an unparalleled earthmoving solution. By combining the cutting-edge features of the ADT and the scraper, John Deere has created an integrated machine that boosts productivity and simplifies operations. Operators can effortlessly switch to scraper mode, where the ADT and Scraper pan work as one cohesive unit.

This integration streamlines workflow and minimises downtime, allowing operators to focus on the task. Additionally, the integrated scraper controls provide intuitive and precise operation, further enhancing efficiency on the job site. With the Scraper Pro package and high-resolution display, operators can access push-button sequencing, additional cameras, scraper position feedback, and productivity information, enabling them to make informed decisions and optimise performance.

Enhanced productivity and technology

The 460 P-Tier Dump Truck takes productivity to new heights through its advanced technology and intelligent design. The ADT automatically adjusts engine torque curves and differential locks and selects the optimum gear ratio, ensuring uninterrupted momentum and increased productivity.

JDLink connectivity provides machine location, utilisation data, and alerts to help maximise productivity and efficiency. JDLink also enables John Deere Connected Support to maximise uptime and lower costs. Dealers use expert alerts based on data from thousands of connected machines to address conditions that may otherwise lead to downtime. The dealer can also monitor machine health and leverage remote diagnostics and programming capability to diagnose problems further and even update machine software without a time-consuming trip to the job site.

Operator comfort and safety

John Deere has prioritised operator comfort and safety in designing the 460 P-Tier Dump Truck. The spacious and ergonomically designed cabin offers a comfortable working environment and features such as adjustable seating, intuitive controls, and excellent visibility. The lowered hood design improves forward visibility, allowing operators to navigate confidently. Furthermore, the optional LED light package and rear-view camera enhance visibility, even in low-light conditions, ensuring a safer and more efficient work environment.

The quiet, pressurised cab features an easy-to-read monitor, rear-camera display, and an optional automatic temperature control system that allows operators to select a desired temperature. Standard high-back air-suspension seat adjusts multiple ways for all-day support. Premium heated/ventilated seats with heavy-duty suspension and adjustable seat pan are also available.

The John Deere 460 P-Tier Dump Truck’s robust engine, seamless integration with the large scraper, and advanced technology features, offers a comprehensive solution to meet the evolving needs of quarrying professionals. Whether it’s hauling heavy loads, manoeuvring challenging terrains, or optimising productivity, the 460 P-Tier Dump Truck is a reliable partner that delivers exceptional results.•
