John Deere continues to upgrade its G-Series excavator lineup with the introduction of the 17G and 26G compact excavators. These machines offer a Final Tier 4 compliant engine without the need for an after treatment device, a spacious cab, and smooth, responsive hydraulic controls. The nimble excavators were designed with the rental, commercial/residential building, landscaping, underground, and site development industries in mind.
“The operator focused design of the 17G and 26G models maintain proven, John Deere reliability with a few nice refinements,” said Mark Wall, product marketing manager for excavators, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “These compact machines boast big productivity and uptime features, as well as updates that focus on lower daily operating costs.”
