Updated to the J-Series, the John Deere 1050 crawler dozer is powered by a new Tier 3-certified Liebherr 12-liter engine with a wet-sleeve design providing electronic fuel management and 335 net horsepower at 1,600 rpm. The slow engine speed aims at longer life, low fuel consumption and low noise levels. For ease of operation and precise maneuverability, the Deere 1050J calls on a full-featured, single-joystick-controlled, hydrostatic drive train, allowing for power turns under load, counter-rotation and dynamic braking. With an infinitely variable speed range from 0 to 6.8 mph, the operator can choose the right ground speed for the job. The 1050J comes with a new 11.5-cubic-yard, semi-universal blade.
