Confident in the strength and long-lasting design of its machines, John Deere is extending the eight-year/20,000-hour power electronic components warranty on the 944K Hybrid Wheel Loader. The warranty supports John Deere's commitment to the durability and reliability of its popular 944K Hybrid Wheel Loader, which was recently named as a finalist for the Diesel Progress Summit Awards in the Electrification Application of the Year category.

"Since the launch of the 944K Hybrid Wheel Loader, we have reached over half a million hours in the field. Customers trust our machines and components, and they know they can count on our equipment to power through tough and challenging jobs," said Ryan Blades, director, C&F customer and product support for John Deere Construction & Forestry. "With the extension of the warranty offering, we are giving our customers an opportunity to go through a 15,000- to 18,000-hour machine rebuild without any concern about the longevity or reliability of the power electronic components."

The extended warranty coverage includes the same eight-year or 20,000-hour (whichever comes first) non-prorated assurance on wheel motors, generators, power inverters and brake resistors. This offer is now extended to July 31, 2020 and applicable to existing machines in the field and new 944K Hybrid Wheel Loaders. Certain customer conditions must be met to maintain warranty coverage. This includes component rotation between 15,000 and 18,000 hours; drive voltage cables replacement between 15,000 and 18,000 hours; and an annual dealer machine inspection.
