Whether up against a wall or between a rock and a hard place, this close-quarter specialist makes it all look pretty easy.

FT4/Stage IV engine requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF). Extended service intervals help maximize uptime.

Highly efficient heavy-duty cooling system keeps things cool, even in tough environments or high altitudes. Cool-on-demand suction-type fan helps reduce material buildup and maintenance.

Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less movement and effort. Optional sliding switch provides proportional speed control.

Press the power-boost button on the right-hand control for extra digging power. Power boost also kicks in automatically in boom-up/lifting functions.

Three productivity modes allow you to choose the digging style that fits the job:

  • High-productivity delivers more power and faster hydraulic response to move more material.
  • Power delivers a balance of power, speed, and fuel economy for normal operation.
  • Economy limits top speed and helps save fuel.

New hood design, expanded front and side glass, narrow front cab posts, overhead glass, and numerous mirrors provide optimal visibility.

Vertical spin-on fuel and engine oil filters are positioned for convenient and simplified servicing.

Large fuel tanks and 500- 5,000 hour engine and hydraulic oil-service intervals decrease downtime for routine maintenance.

A John Deere exclusive, three welded bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress for amazing durability.
