New Wheeled Excavators from Deere

John Deere introduces two models of wheeled excavators, the 190G W, and 230G W, equipped with EPA Interim Tier 4 engine, to provide contractors with higher productivity, increased uptime, and lower daily operating costs.

The new models fit a variety of applications, including clearing ditches, repairing sewers or potholes, loading trucks or moving Jersey barriers, said Mark Wall, excavator product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. 

The 190G W and 230G W feature a 159 hp certified Interim Tier 4 Isuzu engine mated to the John Deere Powerwise III hydraulic engine management system that offers three productivity modes: High Productivity, Power and Economy mode, as well as a Power Dig and Auto Power Lift function. High productivity mode delivers more power and faster hydraulic response to move a greater amount of material. Power mode delivers smooth and balanced metering for normal operationand Economy mode reduces top speed and helps save fuel. For convenience, the Power Dig button allows an operator to get the extra hydraulic power to increase productivity.

The iT4/Stage IIIB technology utilized in the wheeled excavators’ diesel engine is simple, fuel efficient, fully integrated and fully supported. Seamless solutions include field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) for reducing NOx and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to reduce particulate matter. The Interim Tier 4 Technology enabled John Deere to maintain or reduce fuel consumption, helping to lower daily operating costs.

A variety of boom, blade, outrigger and bucket options are available. The G-Series short wheelbase makes them very adept in close quarters – unlike wieldy truck-mounted excavators. For work close-up, operators can opt for the two-piece boom.

To increase uptime, John Deere designed the new G-Series models with a more comfortable and spacious cab that comes equipped with an easy-to-navigate, enhanced multi-language LCD monitor that lets operators effortlessly dial-in a wealth of machine information and functionality.
