John Deere 210G LC Excavator upgrades

The updated John Deere 210G LC construction-class excavator is equipped with a 159 hp certified Final Tier 4 John Deere PowerTech™ PVS 6.8L engine, meeting emission standards. Built to benefit those working in the underground, road building, energy, commercial building and pipeline industries. Upgrades include an optional auxiliary function lever joystick switch option that provides proportional control for auxiliary hydraulic attachments to improve productivity. A larger hood design upgrade allows for improved engine access. A nine-pin diagnostic connector was moved into the cab to reduce diagnostic testing time for technicians. Other improvements include a single side ground level fluid filter service, which moves the engine oil, fuel and hydraulic pilot oil filters to ground level on the right side of the machine. The 210G LC includes an automatic cleaning diesel particulate filter (DPF) that can go up to 15,000 hours before ash removal. Handrails help maintain contact when climbing the upper structure to service the engine, improving service accessibility and security. The optional light package now includes a hood light to provide greater visibility to the engine compartment to easily see daily service points. The hood light is ideal for customers who work in dark or low light environments, or those who run multiple shifts and may need to conduct late-night fuel and lube operations. The 210G LC provides optional sensor mounting brackets welded to the boom, arm, dogbone, counterweight and mainframe at the factory, enabling immediate install of Topcon, Trimble, Leica or other grade reference systems. A programmable thumb attachment mode is also available and enables operators to program oil flow for thumb attachments with the monitor. www.deere.com
