The John Deere 670G LC excavator has been updated with a Final Tier 4 engine. The 463-hp production-class model can be used for big highway jobs, and underground, deeper water and sewer projects.

Maintenance is simplified on the G-Series excavators with features such as a battery disconnect switch, spin-on fuel filters, and two additional water separators to maintain long fuel filter life. Engine and hydraulic oil sample ports allow for quick proactive maintenance checks. In addition, an improved step position on the track frame and handrails on the upper structure provide multiple points of contact when accessing the engine compartment.

Operators have access to a monitor that employs a turn-and-tap rotary control for quick access to performance and convenience features and functions. Operators will also appreciate the quiet and spacious cab and all-around visibility.

The 670G LC excavator includes smart features, such as a Powerwise III engine/hydraulic-management system with multiple productivity modes, enabling operators to balance engine performance and hydraulic flow for predictable operation. High productivity delivers more power and faster hydraulic response to move more material. Power provides smooth and balanced metering for normal operation. Economy reduces top speed and helps save fuel.

The excavator also boasts an expansion tank in the cooling system that enhances air pursing, provides make-up fluid when needed, and improves overall cooling efficiency, helping the engine operate at peak performance.
