John Deere's redesigned 135G and 245G LC reduced-tail-swing excavators feature EPA Final Tier 4 diesel engines. These excavators can maneuver through any project, from street repair to underground utility construction.

New features on the redesigned models include standard rearview camera, standard factory-installed auxiliary hydraulics with programmable attachment modes, and upper-structure handrails that provide multiple points of contact when accessing the engine compartment.

Three productivity modes let operators choose the digging style that fits the job: high productivity mode for moving a lot of material, power mode for normal operation, and economy mode for saving fuel. Maintenance is easy with grouped service points, at-a-glance gauges, and an easily accesible battery disconnect switch that extends battery life.

Cab features mechanical-suspension high-back seats and a standard air-suspension heated seat in the 245G LC. Both models feature a standard LCD monitor and rotary dial. An automatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers keeps glass clear and operators comfortable.
