New Equipment | 850L


Crawler Dozers

Need big results on big jobs? Game on. The 850L will help you bring your “A” game. Larger and more powerful than the previous K-Series model, it’s tough enough to handle the most demanding conditions. With new state-of-the-art controls, the usual John Deere arsenal of production-boosting hydrostatic advantages, and a SmartGrade™ option, it provides the finesse you need to tackle precision work. Beefed up on the outside, it’s bigger on the inside, too, with a roomier, more comfortable cab along with a host of creature comforts. You’ll find what you need to take on your competition in an 850L.
Whether you’re fine grading or mass excavating, this durable dozer can do both — and more. Its roomier cab will help operators roll with whatever punches the jobsite throws their way.


Featuring the widest Power-Angle-Tilt (PAT) blade in its class, the 850L delivers more horsepower and torque than its predecessor, for increased productivity. Plus, an eight-roller undercarriage improves stability for fine grading.

  • With standard electrohydraulic (EH) controls and an “open-architecture” design, the 850L makes it easy to add the grade-control system of your choice, whether it’s Topcon, Leica, or Trimble. SmartGrade, John Deere’s mastless machine-control solution available from the factory, is fully integrated and easy to set up and run.
  • New eight-roller, 130-inch undercarriage puts more track on the ground, for better stability and fine-grading capability over its predecessor. When the job requires a power-angle-tilt (PAT) or outside dozer (OSD) blade, either is available in extra-long-track (XLT), wide-long-track (WLT), and low-ground-pressure (LGP) track configurations.
  • The 850L delivers 20 more horsepower than our previous model and more horsepower than any competitor in its class.
  • At 172 inches, the PAT blade is the widest in its class — helping to increase productivity, especially when grading.
  • Standard LED lights help show the way when you need to work past or before daylight. For additional illumination, opt for a premium high-output lighting package, which is twice as bright.
