As John Deere continues integrating its smart solutions and features into its machinery, the company has announced a new excavator that will revolutionize the customer experience. At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, John Deere revealed the new 85 P-Tier, which features an 18% increase in engine horsepower and continuous flow auxiliary hydraulics. Additionally, it detailed updates that will be made to the 510 P-Tier excavator models.
"Helping to provide a competitive edge for our customers, our future John Deere excavators will be designed to make your job easier and safer, with the contractor's bottom line in mind," said Aaron Klauer, global product manager for mid-and-large size excavators at John Deere. “We understand the importance of attracting and retaining talented operators. That's why we are prioritizing an elevated operator experience through a new cab, controls, displays and technology."
In addition to providing more engine horsepower, the new 85 P-Tier has increased pump torque and improved dig forces. With a larger cab, operators will also enjoy a smoother ride, an eight-inch Bluetooth-equipped monitor, and an integrated 270-degree camera system.
The 510 P-Tier will replace the existing 470 P-Tier model. Some of its highlights include a variable undercarriage, which can handle buckets five yards and above, and a highly efficient powertrain. Thanks to its E-fans, operators will benefit from a reduction in maintenance costs by up to 25 percent, as well as lower repair costs. The 510 P-Tier can also reduce fuel consumption by up to 20 percent.
"We are constantly listening to the needs of the industry, and our future generation excavator models not only leverage what we've learned from our customers, but also utilizes John Deere's decades of global excavator experience to bring the most innovative and game-changing machines to market," Klauer continued.
