John Deere offers two hydraulic excavators in the 12- to 13.5-metric-ton range, the 120D and 135D mid-sized machines with big performance. The 120D is a perfect dig-and-run unit for jobs such as excavating basements or placing pipe and transports easily between jobs. The 135D is a reduced-tail-swing machine capable of maximum production in confined areas and work within a single lane of traffic. A short counterweight allows it to dig nearer to buildings and obstructions. Both these machines have the hallmarks of our D-Series line, including our Powerwise III engine and hydraulic management system for smooth power and fuel savings, and roomy, comfortable cabs with great visibility, said Mark Wall, excavator product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. Deere’s packed plenty of power in both excavators, with long-running Tier 3-certified diesels.
