As part of its ongoing Performance Tiering Strategy, John Deere introduces its latest P-tier and G-tier mid-size excavator models, including the brand-new 200 G-Tier model.

P-Tier excavator models are designed for customers looking to enhance their job site productivity. These models have advanced features to deliver a high level of performance, efficiency and comfort.

Offering improved front-joint durability, the P-Tier mid-size models - including the 135, 210, 245, 250, 300 and 345 - promote better performance and operator stability.

With grease points at the arm-tip for easy maintenance, extended uptime and better torque retention at the clamp - which reduces the likelihood of the front hydraulic pipes moving - the new P-Tier models are meant to provide performance with easier serviceability. In addition, the redesigned boom-foot bushings offer enhanced durability for an extended machine life span.

Introducing the John Deere 200 G-tier

The latest addition to the John Deere lineup of mid-size excavators is the brand-new 200 G-Tier. Helping to enhance efficiency and reliability without sacrificing power or torque, the PowerTech 4.5-liter engine on the 200 G-Tier is designed to deliver optimal performance for operators of all skill levels.

In addition, easy-to-maintain, high-uptime exhaust filters help decrease downtime for service while the in-monitor adjustable flow and pressure auxiliary hydraulics can be controlled using the auxiliary function lever.

The Powerwise Plus hydraulic-management system in 200 G-Tier is designed to combine extra ability with smooth control to deliver on-demand power through precise pump flow and metered pilot controls.

With the push of a button on the joystick, operators can boost power and toggle on automatic boom-up and lifting functions. In addition, the optional hydraulic single-pedal propel system moves the machine when and where you need it to without having to articulate both hand levers and both foot pedals, making for easier operation.

Two factory-installed high-pressure, high-flow auxiliary packages are available to power attachments. The ergonomically correct, short-throw pilot joysticks on the 200 G-Tier provide smooth, precise fingertip control with less movement or effort.

Designed to accommodate different operators with the flip of a lever, the control pattern-change valve comes standard on the 200 G-Tier. Also standard on the 200 G-Tier is the pattern-control switch, which is accessible at ground level.

The lineup of John Deere G- and P-Tier excavators can be equipped with a full line of buckets. The new hydraulic coupler-ready option includes factory-installed hydraulic plumbing to the end of the arm, additional coupler controls integrated into a switch in the cab and a quick and efficient coupler installation capability.
