NOT JUST TALK. PUT THEM INTO ACTION.
Forget what you might have heard about reduced-tail-swing excavators. These machines are packed with production-boosting advantages thatll have you talking them up in a big way.
Maneuverable reduced-tail-swing models fit in on tight or crowded areas, easing the risk of damage to surroundings or machines. Optional 20-inch rubber crawler pad on the 135G helps reduce impact to concrete or asphalt when working on street repairs or in housing developments.
Powerwise Plus technology delivers fuel-efficient power when you need it.
Auto-idle automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics arent in use. Auto shutdown further preserves precious fuel.
DO MORE WITH ONE
Optional backfill blade on the 135G enhances machine stability and eliminates the need for extra equipment.
GO WITH THE FLOW
Unique three-pump hydraulic system in the 245G LC provides even more flow. The third pump supplies additional hydraulic oil to the swing circuit as demanded to maximize productivity without depleting oil reserves, slowing other functions, or sacrificing fuel economy.
EASY STREET STARTS HERE
Why sweat it? Our reduced-tail-swing excavators with intelligent features like the Powerwise Plus hydraulic-management system have what you need to get the job done. Whether up against a wall or between a rock and a hard place, our 135G and 245G LC close-quarter specialists make it look pretty easy.
John Deere Powerwise Plus technology delivers on-demand power. Precise pump flow when the pilot controls are metered provides reliable, fuel-efficient machine performance.
When the going gets tough, simply press the power-boost button on the right-hand control and muscle through. Its standard on both excavators.
Generous flow, arm force, and swing torque help speed cycles. So you can do your best to stay on schedule or ahead of the weather.
For work that requires extra finesse, short-throw low-effort controls, masterful metering, and smooth multifunction operation deliver dependable precision for tasks like utilities work.
PUT PRODUCTIVITY ON SPEED DIAL
In this home away from home, its pretty easy for operators to dial things up. The 135G and 245G LCs refined monitor employs a rotary control that makes it quick and easy to tap into an abundance of performance- and convenience-boosting functions and features. Operators will also appreciate the spacious and well-appointed cab, expansive all-round visibility including a standard rearview camera, and numerous other amenities designed to help them do their best work.
WEVE GOT YOUR BACK
Sculpted mechanical-suspension high-back seat, standard in the 135G, slides together or independent of the joystick console, so it wont cramp an operators style. Air-suspension heated seat, standard in the 245G LC, keeps operators comfortably supported and ready to be productive.
IN FULL COMMAND
Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, predictable fingertip control with less movement or effort. Sliding switch allows proportional speed control, for effortless fingertip command.
SEE CLEARLY NOW
Standard boom/frame lights and field-installed cab/boom-mounted lights provide illumination to extend your workday beyond normal daylight hours when needed.
Sliding switch allows proportional speed control for standard auxiliary hydraulics, maximizing versatility and machine utilization.
Multi-language LCD monitor and rotary dial provide intuitive access to a wealth of information and functions. Just turn and tap to select work mode, access operating info, check maintenance intervals, source diagnostic codes, adjust cab temperature, and tune the radio. Plus much more.
Automatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers helps keep the glass clear and the cab comfortable.
Manufactured with the same durable design and quality components youve come to expect from the rest of our wide-ranging excavator lineup, the John Deere 135G and 245G LC are some pretty tough customers.
IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL
With large idlers, rollers, and strutted links, the sealed and lubricated undercarriage delivers long and reliable performance.
LETS HEAR IT FOR THE FANS
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.
Thick-plate single-sheet mainframe, box-section track frames, and industry-exclusive double-seal swing bearing provide rock-solid durability.
A John Deere exclusive, three welded bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress for unsurpassed durability. Booms, arms, and mainframes are so tough, theyre warranted for three years or 10,000 hours.
FT4 ENGINE TECHNOLOGY
To meet stringent EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/ EU Stage IV standards, we built on our Interim Tier 4 (IT4)/Stage IIIB solution to deliver the best combination of performance, efficiency, and reliability without sacrificing power or torque. Our technology is simple, fluid efficient, fully integrated, and fully supported. It employs field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). The FT4/Stage IV engine requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF).
