Deere Adds "Customer-Driven" Enhancement to Excavator

The John Deere 670G LC excavator, a 463 hp production-class model is now equipped with a Tier 4 final engine and other updates to enhance productivity, maintenance and safety.

Deere 670GThe machine is easy to service, with features such as a battery disconnect switch, spin-on fuel filters and two additional water separators to maintain long fuel filter life. Engine and hydraulic oil sample ports allow for quick, convenient maintenance checks. An improved step position on the track frame and handrails on the upper structure provide multiple points of contact when accessing the engine compartment.

Behind the controls and in the comfort of a sculpted, heated air-suspension seat, operators have access to a refined monitor that employs a turn-and-tap rotary control for quick access to an abundance of performance and convenience features and functions. 

The Powerwise III engine/hydraulic-management system has multiple productivity modes to balance engine performance and hydraulic flow for predictable operation. An expansion tank in the cooling system enhances air pursing, provides make-up fluid when needed and improves overall cooling efficiency, helping the engine operate at peak performance.
