John Deere announced the introduction of two customer-inspired excavators models that build on the G-Series class on April 9, 2012, according to a company release.
The iconic brand announced the 160G LC and 210G LC excavators and noted that the new models would have a more comfortable cab and Interim Tier4-certified engines. The release noted that the machines would continue the John Deere tradition of power, reliability and productivity on the jobsite.
"The G-Series models provide impressive arm force, bucket force and lift capacity for applications such as stockpiling overburden, excavating basements, loading trucks, or placing pipe," said Mark Wall, product marketing manager for excavators, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "These new easily transportable units provide contractors big productivity in a mid-size package."
People who have used John Deere equipment on the jobsite will enjoy the extra legroom and larger entryway that was put in the new models, along with a quieter cab thanks to noise reduction technology.
Construction Equipment reported that the machines also come with periodic active and passive filter cleaning, allowing for the operator to continue working without having to stop the excavator to clean the device.
