K Series crawler dozers offer a quiet, high-visibility cab, powerful dual-path hydrostatic drive and single-lever control. The 650K, 750K and 850K XLT models deliver from 75 to 96 net horsepower and net torque from 265 to 318 lbs.-ft. Blade capacities range from 2.0 to 2.73 cubic yards. The 650K has 88 inches of track on ground, the 750K has 89 inches, and the 850K XLT has 93 inches. Larger hydrostatic pumps and motors increase the power to each track.

Satellite positioning systems use new G3 technology, developed to provide access to 30 Galileo satellites planned for launch by the European Space Agency, and new signals that will result from the modernization of the GPS constellation. When all systems are fully operational, the company's positioning systems, which currently provide access to U.S. GPS and Russian GLONASS satellite systems, will have access to more than 80 positioning satellites.

For use with the company's LRS, LRT, or other standard concrete-reclaiming systems, the LDP buffer discharges returned concrete at a controlled rate into the reclaimer. The LDP accommodates up to six mixer trucks, allowing all to discharge at the same time, and provides a uniform flow of material into the reclaimer.

New K-Series compact loaders offer the SmartFAN cooling system, which senses operating temperatures and rotates only as fast as it needs to. The machines have a strengthened chain case design and increased loading heights on large-frame, vertical lift path units. For jobs that require lifting/loading materials into trucks, an additional two feet of reach is available with models S250, S300, T300 and A300.
