What do you guys think Deere is releasing at the ConExpo? Anyone heard rumors?

Check out their website.

It has a fold down stabilizer...like a backhoe I followed a link and saw the same, maybe a telehandler? Doesn't it say something like "Something we've never built before" or something like that?

They already have one, the 180 and 230 sizes, Hitachi made.

My guess is a telehandler.

I was thinking it could be a boring machine on tracks?

That's what i was thinking on the drive home. There are 3 things under covers on the site. Only 1 has stabs. Deere has tried telehandlers before, but that was on the ag side.

I'll be there to find out, when are you getting in?

While we're fantasizing about what it could be, I hope it to be a large front-engine track loader with a backhoe on the back. I would have a use for one.

I am thinking a tracked tractor backhoe.

With where the outriggers are placed, the boom would have way more swing than the 180 degree swing that hoes have now.

Remote controlled backhoe.

I have heard grumblings that 2 of the 3 are the K series dozers and track loaders. If we are going for what it should be, i would go for a Huddig clone. Ozz's idea is a close second, but huddig-like.

Well, some of you are on the right track. One of the three is a new 755K track loader, and another is the new 944 loader that competes in the same size class as a 988. The middle one, well, we'll just have to wait and see, but I think it may be a tracked version of a machine similar to a Mecalac.

An inside source told me that it's a new type of transporter for equipment.

It's called a Super Hydraulic Instantaneous Transporter.

Or SH*T for short.

I'm excited to see a big deere loader. about time

That was my second thought, with a Mecalac type multi-purpose machine.


Ron has obviously seen the movie The Cat in the Hat.

OK, so I was thumbing through the Supply Post, and I saw a company called Dieci, they have a telehandler with a 3 point rear hitch and PTO, maybe Deere wanted that built a similar idea?

I've read someone's opinion that it will be a diesel electric backhoe, not a bad thought.

I'm not sure how Deere would incorporate a diesel-electric package under the hood of a standard hoe. Unless you could get a lot of amps at a lot of volts from a smaller motor to run the size genny needed to run all 4 electric motors. Even then, a the rest of the drivetrain would be an awkward fit compared to running the power through a diff along and axle, as you would have to have a pretty big electric motor attached to every wheel.

While it may bee possible on the motor/generator end, I can't see it working with the rest of the drivetrain. But, Cat made it work on the D7E, so we'll see.

Hmmmmmm, the 755K is being displayed out in the open, so it's not one of the three new machines under the tarps. I guess that leaves two of them to guess about.
