John Deere recently updated the 135G and 245G LC reduced-tail-swing excavators, which are designed to maneuver in tight spots for projects such as urban renewal, street repair and underground utility construction. The machines are equipped with EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV diesel engines, delivering 101 hp (75 kW) for the 135G and 159 hp (119 kW) on the 245G LC.

The engine requires no diesel particulate filter, which helps reduce packaging requirements, Mark Wall, excavator product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry, shared with Off-Highway Engineering.
