Ideal for municipalities and work in heavily populated centers across North America, the updated John Deere 190G W excavator provides customers with a “Swiss army knife” for clearing ditches, repairing sewers or potholes, loading trucks, or moving Jersey barriers.

The 190G W features a 173-hp diesel engine that meets Final Tier 4 emission regulations without aftertreatment devices. A lightweight, split-type hood provides wide-open access to the engine from the front, and same-side filters and water separator at ground level simplify maintenance. The wheeled model boasts an operating weight between 43,431 and 45,300 lbs.

The 190G W possesses a short wheelbase to slip into close quarters with ease. For close-up work, customers can opt for a two-piece boom. The excavator can move between jobsites with a top speed of 21.7 mph, and rubber tires won’t tear up concrete or asphalt.

The 190G W is protected by a heavy-duty undercarriage and durable D-channel side frames. Added strength comes from welded bulkheads within the boom that resist torsional stress, tungsten-carbide thermal-coated arm surfaces, and oil-impregnated bushings. An enlarged cover provides additional protection for the blade cylinder, and a reinforced outrigger cylinder further boosts component durability.
