Capable of working around congested jobsites in efficient fashion, the updated John Deere 75G and 85G excavators boast new customer-inspired features, including hand-controlled proportional auxiliary hydraulics and the ability to be equipped with a hydraulic coupler that allows the machines to use backhoe buckets.
The standard hand-controlled proportional auxiliary hydraulics allow the operator to run attachments at a desired speed. The operator can work very slowly for delicate work, like picking a piece of landscape stone, or faster via full flow to open the thumb and drop debris. Coupled with the standard pattern changer, rubber pads and standard blade, these machines come from the factory ready to work in a variety of applications, John Deere assures.
Other key features include:
- 57-hp Final Tier 4 diesel engine outfitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) that cleans automatically without impacting the machines’ productivity
- Easy-to-use, enhanced LCD monitors – simple turn and tap of the rotary dial allows operators to select work mode, access operating info, check maintenance intervals, source diagnostic codes, adjust cab temperature and tune the radio
- Spacious cab includes a comfortable, fabric-covered adjustable suspension seat with ample legroom
- Wide expanse of front and side glass, narrow front cab posts, large tinted overhead hatch and numerous mirrors provide all-around visibility
