John Deere has updated its lineup of five small-frame G-series skid steers and compact track loaders.
Taking customer feedback into consideration, the upgraded models will provide operators with more power and efficiency on the job site along with increased productivity.
The five models, 312GR, 314G, 316GR, 317G and the 318G, were first released three years ago. The improved small-frame G-Series machines can be equipped with an optional rearview camera and easy-to-clean cab windows for additional visibility, safety and speed on the job site. The upgraded cab offers more comfort so operators can easily maneuver the machine and remain in the cab for longer durations on the job, without sacrificing performance.
The small-frame cabs also include a new Bluetooth radio option, and the redesigned manual control levers have improved ergonomic grips for increased operator comfort and accessibility.
