For equipment owners looking to get more done at a lower cost on earthmoving and material-handling jobs, the new John Deere D-Series excavators—240D LC, 270D LC, 350D LC, 450D LC, 650D LC and 850D LC—are an ideal fit. These new machines retain many features of their predecessors, but with significant improvements. Faster hydraulics, a redesigned cab, undercarriage enhancements and a new cooling system deliver a boost in productivity and uptime, as well as lower daily costs.
The completely redesigned cab—with its fully adjustable suspension seat and extra legroom—keeps operators comfortable and productive. Best-in-class visibility—including 47% more right-hand window glass and a larger roof-hatch area—provides a commanding view to the entire work area. Generous hydraulic flow and best-in-class metering ensure powerful digging force, precise control and multifunction operation. Shorter pilot controls result in smooth, predictable control with less effort and less fatigue.
The 240D LC and 350D LC feature John Deere PowerTech engines, which meet stringent U.S. EPA Tier III emissions requirements. The 450D LC, 650D LC and 850D LC use field-proven Isuzu engines that also meet Tier III requirements. All of these engines employ a four-valve design that enhances fuel economy.
