Following up on a promise I made a few months back here is video footage of the old John Deere 544A wheel loader pushing snow at a local shopping center. At one point in time there were two 544’s as part of the removal team but one has since disappeared, replaced with a Ford loader of similar vintage. This remaining unit is a loud one and could easily be heard from across the parking light. Unlike other vintage machines that have appeared on this site there is no need to guess at the specifications as the original brochure can still be found hosted at the John Deere website.

Next I’ll set my sights on the ol’ Ford. With another major storm on the horizon I don’t think I’ll have to wait very long.
