Operators who need more power while on the job know that they can rely on John Deere to find the perfect piece of equipment. The John Deere 950 tractor, for example, is equipped to attach a John Deere 80 loader for all types of loading and lifting jobs. While the two are not sold as one, it is rare to see one without the other. Combining these two pieces of equipment provides operators with a powerful machine capable of completing a number of residential yard and gardening tasks.

Before hitching the loader to the tractor, it is important that operators know what they’re dealing with. We recommend committing the following key facts to memory if you plan to put a John Deere 950 tractor loader to use.

Loader Speed

This is referring to how quickly and fluidly the loader picks up and releases loads. The time it takes for the loader to go from a ground position to its maximum height of 8 feet is approximately 4.3 seconds. When lowering the loader back to its resting position, it will take about 2.6 seconds. The bucket dump and rollback of the loader have times of their own – 4.7 seconds and 2.8 seconds, respectively.

The speed of the John Deere 950 tractor loader makes it a highly productive and efficient machine without sacrificing precision or safety.

Dump Distances

At a maximum height of 8 feet, the Deere 80 loader has a dump clearance of approximately 6 feet and a dump reach of 2 feet. Fully extended, the bucket reaches 4.5 feet in front of the tractor in order to dump material in a spot that may be difficult for a John Deere compact tractor to reach on its own. At ground level, the bucket rollback measure 22 inches. 

Loader Capacity

The strength of the John Deere 950 tractor loader is what makes it such a powerful machine: The bucket has a lift force of 1,800 pounds and can hold 920 pounds at full height. When on the ground, the bucket can pry with a force of more than twice that at 2,060 pounds. The power packed into this single 53-inch wide bucket gives operators the convenience and capacity needed to complete even the largest and heaviest jobs.

When using a John Deere 950 tractor, it is essential that you know every feature’s capacity and purpose before putting it into gear; the same is true when attaching the 80 loader.
