DEERE - 85G Back
DEERE 85GMID-SIZE EXCAVATORS
John Deere mid-size excavators will accelerate your profitability and productivity. With Powerwise Plus technology available for select models, these mid-size machines provide on-demand power when you need it. Our hydraulic excavators range from 16,500-90,000 lbs delivering mid-size might into any job.
With special features such as reduced-tail-swing, grade management options, and super-long front options theres an excavator that fits your specific worksite needs. Move effortlessly and take control with the hydraulic single-pedal propel system and short-throw pilot levers with smooth fingertip control. No matter the job, our mid-size excavators will work smarter and harder while you can take a load off.
FIT IN MORE PRODUCTIVITY
Neither too big nor too small, these right-size excavators are the perfect solution for a wide variety of tasks. Their reduced-tail-swing configurations provide extra flexibility, enabling them to maneuver nimbly and work efficiently in and around congested conditions. Whats more, the 85G comes equipped with the extra advantage of an independent-swing boom that lets it work even closer to curbs, parallel to structures, or in the midst of traffic. Inside their spacious, comfortable cabs, easy-to-navigate enhanced LCD monitors let operators easily dial-in a wealth of machine info and functionality. Of course, these two meet EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV regulations, so theyre a perfect fit for your equipment fleet for years to come.
ALL IN THE FAMILY
When we designed the 75G and 85G, we combined the agility and adaptability of our smaller compact models with the power and wide-ranging capabilities of their large excavator siblings all with the flexibility of your fleet in mind.
HAVE IT YOUR WAY
Undercarriage options include rubber tracks or sealed and lubricated chain with rubber pads or steel semi-grousers from 18- to 24-inches wide. Numerous arm and bucket options let you spec the right excavator for the way you work.
These go-to taskmasters transport easily between jobsites, making them ideal for dig-and-go jobs.
The standard blade enables the 75G and 85G to capably backfill and clean up. It also increases agility and stability on slopes.
AT HOME IN THE CAB
Spacious operator stations with large entryways and expansive sight lines help redefine comfort and convenience.
Factory-installed standard auxiliary hydraulics with proportional control boost jobsite productivity. High-pressure, high-flow auxiliary hydraulic packages power the addition of a hydraulic hammer or a wide range of over 100 John Deere attachments.
REMOVE OBSTACLES WITHOUT MOVING THEM
Equipped with the same proven load-sensing open-center hydraulic system as our other excavators, the pinpoint metering of the 75G and 85G delivers smooth-as-silk control. Together with their reduced-tail-swing configurations, they provide the finesse and footwork to keep jobsite obstacles from becoming barriers. Two power modes, plus an available control-pattern selector, easily adapt to changing job demands and operator preferences.
Why let obstacles dictate the way you work? The 85Gs independent swing boom lets you get in tight and even dig parallel to structures
WHEN THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD
Optional rubber track pads or heavy-duty rubber belts let these excavators set up and work on paved surfaces and even cross curbs without doing damage.
For work that requires extra finesse, short-throw low-effort controls, exceptional metering, and smooth multifunction operation give the precision you need.
SHIFT INTO GEAR
Two-speed propel with AutoShift helps speed machine moves and maximize maneuverability.
MODES OF OPERATION
Engine performance and hydraulic flow are optimally balanced for predictable operation. Two productivity modes allow you to choose the digging style that fits the job. Power delivers a balance of speed and fuel economy for normal operation. Economy reduces top speed and helps save fuel.
PUT MORE PRODUCTIVITY ON SPEED DIAL
In the 75G and 85G, its easy for operators to dial things up. The refined monitor employs a rotary control to quickly tap into an abundance of performance and convenience functions and features. Operators will also appreciate the comfortable fabric-covered adjustable suspension seat and ample legroom in the spacious, well-appointed cab. Expansive all-around visibility, low-effort joysticks, a highly efficient HVAC system, and numerous other amenities offer what your operators need to focus on their work.
TAKE IT ON.
Just like you, our 75G and 85G Excavators dont quit. These dependable workers deliver rugged reliability, with job-proven digging structures and hydraulic, electrical, and undercarriage components. Highly efficient cooling systems keep things running cool, even in high altitudes or harsh environments. Other durability-enhancing extras include tungsten carbide-coated wear surfaces and oil-impregnated bushings. When you know how theyre built, youll see how tough they are.
A John Deere feature, three welded bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress.
Rigid, reinforced D-channel side frames resist impacts, maximizing cab and component protection.
COAT OF ARMS
Tungsten-carbide coating creates an extremely wear-resistant surface to protect the all-important bucket-to-arm joint.
Box-section track frames, thick-plate single-sheet mainframe, and large swing bearing deliver rock-solid durability. Strong shields deflect material and impacts, protecting the blade cylinder and propel motors.
Viscous fan continuously adjusts speed as necessary for effective cooling. Helps reduce noise and fuel consumption, too.
WRAP IT UP
Wear-resistant hoses are routed, secured, and guarded for exceptional durability. Cordura covering and wire wrapping adds an extra degree of protection to exposed hoses. O-ring face-seal couplers virtually eliminate leaks.
UNDERNEATH IT ALL
Large idlers, rollers, and strutted links in the sealed and lubricated undercarriage deliver reliable performance. Optional heavy-duty rubber track pads provide the long-term durability of a steel undercarriage, yet are easy on hard surfaces such as asphalt or concrete.
