John Deere has announced that it will be expanding its G-tier Wheel Loader offerings in the U.S. with the introduction of the 644 G-tier and 544 G-tier. This comes after the successful rollout of the 644 G-tier Wheel Loader in Canada in 2021.
The 644 G-tier is ideal for customers working on everything from site development to asphalt. It features the John Deere 6.8-liter engine, as well as John Deere Teammate axles. The wheel loader can also be customized through several different packages.
The 544 G-tier, which is also now available in the Canadian market, is conveniently in the three-yard loader size class. It features in-cab controls, including adjustable boom-height kickout, return to carry, and return to dig. Additionally, the wheel loader can be equipped with additional features, such as axle coolers and a hydraulic reversing fan.
"Not every customer is looking for the most technology in a machine,” said Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager at John Deere. "By introducing the 544 G-tier in Canada and expanding the availability of the 644 G-tier into the United States, we are providing our customers with options to help meet their diverse needs. The G-tier models support customers looking for reliability, without the added extras that they would find in a P-tier or X-tier machine, and that fit their investment levels as well. With the G-tier models, customers are getting the versatility and ruggedness in a machine, without any compromises."
All machines in the G-tier product lineup can be equipped with JDLink™ Connectivity and Connected Support. Furthermore, the 544 G-tier and 644 G-tier are both eligible for the John Deere Protect™ Service Plan, which helps with routine maintenance.
