Camera systems provide a 270-degree view

The 367-horsepower 470 P-tier, 463-horsepower 670 P-tier, and 512-horsepower 870 P-tier John Deere excavators include visibility enhancements over G Series predecessors. The P-tier crawler excavators have standard right, rear and left camera systems with added LED surround lighting, all integrated into the main monitor of the machine. The systems provide the operator with a 270-degree view of the area around the excavator.

Operating weights are 112,916 pounds for the 470; 154,103 pounds for the 670; and 188,716 pounds for the 870.

The 470 P-tier excavator has optional SmartGrade technology, including 2D guidance, 2D SmartGrade Ready Control, and SmartGrade 3D Control.

Optional on the 470 P-tier is factory-installed hydraulic plumbing all the way to the end of the arm for use with a coupler. Coupler controls are also factory integrated into a switch in the cab.

Auto-idle technology automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics are not in use, helping to save fuel during operation. In addition, the Auto-shutdown feature further preserves fuel on the job, while the hydraulic reversing fan helps keep the coolers clean in high debris environments.

The large excavator hydraulic system helps balance engine performance and hydraulic flow for predictable operations and applications. With three productivity modes, an operator can select the mode that fits the job at hand. The High productivity mode delivers more power and faster hydraulic response to move more material, faster. The Power mode provides smooth and balanced metering for normal operation on the job, while the Economy mode helps to reduce engine rpm, reducing the amount of fuel used by the machine, helping to reduce the cost of operation.
