John Deere’s 180G LC hydraulic excavator is an 18 metric ton model that provides contractors a larger mid-size excavator solution with an Interim Tier4-certifed (IT4) engine. The new 180G LC joins the G-Series hydraulic excavator line. The 180G LC features a rugged, 121 hp, field-proven IT4/EU Stage IIIB John Deere PowerTech diesel engine that meets rigid emissions regulations, enabling operators to work anywhere jobs are available, including non-attainment areas. The new unit employs filed-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) for reducing NOx, and a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to reduce particulate matter. Extended engine and hydraulic oil service intervals increase uptime and reduce daily operating costs. The hydraulically driven, highly efficient fan at the heart of the excavators’ cooling system runs only as needed, reducing noise, fuel consumption and operating costs. The cooling system keeps things running cool, even in high-trash environments and high altitude. http://www.johndeere.com/.
