John Deere’s new 18-metric-ton 180G LC hydraulic excavator is marketed as a larger mid-size excavator with a Tier 4-Interim engine.

The 121-horsepower unit is aimed at small local contractors, water and sewer contractors, and those who dig basements and pools.

The 180G LC features a John Deere PowerTech diesel engine that meets current emissions regulations, enabling operators to work anywhere jobs are available, including non-attainment areas, Deere says. The new unit employs cooled exhaust gas recirculation for reducing NOx, and a diesel particulate filter and diesel oxidation catalyst to reduce particulate matter.

The hydraulically driven fan at the heart of the excavators’ cooling system runs only as needed, reducing noise, fuel consumption and operating costs. An automatic or operator-activated reversing option back-blows cooler cores to keep them clean and free of debris.

The 180G LC comes equipped with the Powerwise III hydraulic management system that yields pinpoint metering and smooth, low-effort control, according to the company. The Powerwise III system balances engine performance and hydraulic flow for predictable operation.
