Building upon its long-standing legacy of delivering innovative technology and machines for its customers, John Deere is displaying a variety of new and updated excavator models, highlighted by the new 85 P-Tier and 510 P-Tier current generation excavators, at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2023.
In addition to these new model updates, John Deere also will be unveiling the first look at its all-new future generation excavators. Both types of updates are examples of how John Deere can leverage technology from across the enterprise to extend advanced features and smart solutions to its full line-up of John Deere excavators, helping to revolutionize the portfolio and deliver the John Deere customer experience.
"We are beyond excited about the future of our excavator line-up, including the new models available to our customers today and the machines being strategically designed and built for tomorrow," said Aaron Klauer, global product manager, mid-and-large size excavators, John Deere.
"We are constantly listening to the needs of the industry, and our future generation excavator models not only leverage what we've learned from our customers, but also utilizes John Deere's decades of global excavator experience to bring the most innovative and game-changing machines to market."
Compared to the 85 G-Tier model, the new 85 P-Tier boasts an 18 percent engine horsepower increase and the addition of a turbo for high altitude performance. Hydraulic performance improvements include increased pump torque and improved dig forces.
The larger, redesigned cab is equipped with an 8-in. monitor with Bluetooth and a 270-degree camera system integrated into the main monitor. Improved service access and optional features, such as angle blade with float and continuous flow auxiliary hydraulics, round out the updates that improve the performance and versatility of the 85 P-Tier machine.
Coming in at 51-metric tons, the 510 P-Tier is a replacement of the current 470 P-Tier model. Including a variable undercarriage and the ability to handle buckets five yards and above, this new model will continue to deliver exceptional performance and capability in its class, while specifically targeting customer enhancements in operating costs and reliability, according to the manufacturer.
By using a more efficient powertrain, including the integration of E-fans, this new model provides customers up to 25 percent lower maintenance costs, 15 percent lower repair costs and 20 percent lower fuel consumption. This machine is designed to deliver enhanced performance to customers in mass excavation or deep underground applications while providing significant improvement in the cost of ownership.
Looking toward the future and building upon a legacy of global excavator experience, John Deere also is proud to announce its future generation excavators. Utilizing decades of experience and backed by the high-performing network of John Deere dealers, the future generation excavators are designed to be the most capable and modern excavators available in the industry. This allows for John Deere to innovate and deliver customer-first solutions faster than ever before, the manufacturer said.
Enabling John Deere to leverage forward-thinking technology for its future excavator generation, these models will welcome advanced solutions developed for other product lines and production systems across the John Deere enterprise. John Deere also will leverage pre-existing partnerships and agreements to deliver the most impactful machines for its customers.
"Helping to provide a competitive edge for our customers, our future John Deere excavators will be designed to make your job easier and safer, with the contractor's bottom line in mind," said Klauer. "We understand the importance of attracting and retaining talented operators. That's why we are prioritizing an elevated operator experience through a new cab, controls, displays and technology."
On display at this year's show, customers can experience the future generation machines, including the 145 P-Tier, 210 P-Tier and 360 P-Tier models. These models are designed to offer industry leading performance, reliability and durability features, including the industry exclusive full-size cab on the reduced tail swing 145 P-Tier machine. Leveraging a full suite of John Deere advanced technology solutions, the future generation excavators will provide enhancements in connectivity, safety, automation and grade management.
Both new and future John Deere excavator models will be on display at this year's ConExpo-Con/AGG 2023 in the John Deere outdoor booth in the Silver Lot (S5020).
