The 160D LC and 200D LC feature Tier-3-compliant John Deere PowerTech diesel engines, and the 225D LC uses a Tier-3-compliant Isuzu diesel engine. Operating weights are approximately 40,000, 50,000 and 53,000 pounds, respectively; and compared with predecessor models, the D-Series machines feature redesigned cabs, refined hydraulic systems and new cooling systems. Drawbar pull, swing torque, lift capacity and arm force are significantly enhanced.
