John Deere 605C crawler loaderRated at 99 horsepower, the 605C crawler loader uses the same drive train and undercarriage as does the company's 650J crawler dozer, including the engine, hydrostatic pumps and motors, transmission controller and final drives. In addition, the new 605C shares its operator's station, instrumentation, controls and boom/bucket design with the larger Deere 655C and 755C Series II machines. This commonality of design, says Deere, provides big-machine features for the 605C.
