John Deere revealed new large-frame G-Series skid steers and compact track loaders on Aug. 17, designed for contractors, landscapers and farmers alike. The 330G, 331G, 332G and 333G are ready to take on any job, regardless of the scale.
"Demand for compact machines that maximize productivity and uptime at low daily operating costs is growing, and John Deere is growing with it by adding powerful new options to our G-Series lineup, like the new large-frame skid steers and compact track loaders,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager of John Deere Construction & Forestry.
Perhaps the biggest highlight of the new G-Series additions is the refined vertical-lift loader boom design. It reaches higher and farther than before, and it lifts quickly and easily during loading. Its height-to-hinge pin is 11 feet, which allows operators to load dump trucks, feed mixers and hoppers without a problem.
The G-Series machines also have horsepower that is comparable to a small backhoe or crawler, yet they work comfortable in tight quarters. The models have increased operating capacities of up to 3,700 pounds, meaning heavy loads can be easily handled by users. Breakout force has been boosted by 40 percent to ensure that heavy loads are never an issue.
"There has never been a better time to own compact equipment," said Zupancic.
