The 944K hybrid wheel loader has increased fuel economy with a 536-horsepower Tier 4-F JDPS diesel engine. Coast control enables the operator to adjust the aggressiveness of the machine during deceleration with three different settings. The higher the setting, the more electric braking will occur during application, providing up to a 33 percent increase in deceleration performance and an overall extension of service brake life.
Remote jump-start terminals, housed in a closed and locked engine compartment, allow for faster and easier jump-starting and can be used with a trickle charger, says the company.
Warranty coverage includes a 96-month or 20,000-hour (whichever comes first) nonprorated assurance on wheel motors, generators, power inverters and brake retarders.
