New Excavator from John Deere

John Deere's new 210G LC excavator is equipped with a 159 hp certified Final Tier 4 John Deere PowerTech PVS 6.8L engine with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) that can go up to 15,000 hours before ash removal. The 210G LC features excellent total fluid economy (diesel fuel and DEF) and provides customers with higher productivity, increasing reliability and lowering daily operating costs, the company says.

A larger hood offers improved engine access. The nine-pin diagnostic connector was moved into the cab to reduce diagnostic testing time for technicians. Other improvements include a single side ground level fluid filter service, which moves the engine oil, fuel and hydraulic pilot oil filters to ground level on the right side of the machine. An optional auxiliary function lever provides proportional control for auxiliary hydraulic attachments that will improve productivity on the jobsite. The optional light package now includes a hood light to provide greater visibility to the engine compartment to easily see daily service points. 

The 210G LC provides optional sensor mounting brackets welded to the boom, arm, dogbone, counterweight and mainframe at the factory, enabling immediate install of Topcon, Trimble, Leica or other grade reference systems. A programmable thumb attachment mode is also available and enables operators to program oil flow for thumb attachments with the monitor.

With the company's Ulitmate Uptime, owners receive pre-delivery and follow-up inspections, three years of JD Link tlematics, machine prognostics and remote diagnostics.
