John Deere’s 764 High-Speed Dozer (HSD), is an innovative rubber-tracked dozer that combines the speed of a grader with the flotation of a crawler dozer. As a result, operators can perform grading and moderate dozing at about double the speed of a similarly sized crawler. They also have the ability to travel 18 mph across a job site without damaging pavement. Combining the rubber tracks with the speed dramatically expands travel possibilities around the jobsite, meaning less trailer hauling and no need for contractors to lay out mats just to cross pavement. The 764 HSD weighs in at 34,000 lbs. and is powered by a Tier 3 John Deere PowerTech Plus 6.8-L engine rated at 200 hp. The hydrostatic drive train is very efficient in delivering power to the ground on the 764. The machine’s rubber track and drive system ensures there’s much lower rolling resistance than with a conventional steel track system so operators can work and travel at much higher speeds.
