Powerfully compliant

Printer-friendly version

John Deere has added a new PowerTech E 6068 Tier III engine to its 710J backhoe, improving both emissions compliance and power. The 710J still provides great dig depth, reaching up to 22 ft 4 in. when extended. Now the engine, which now comes standard on 710J backhoes, provides an increase in horsepower and the same heavy-duty six-cylinder torque as on the previous Tier II 710Js.

The new machines feature net horsepower of 126, compared with the 123 hp on the Tier II engines, along with a host of other improvements. For example, the high-pressure common-rail fuel system provides higher injection pressures, variable timing and precise control of fuel injection, giving it efficient combustion.
