Not all excavators are created equal
John Deere is taking a bold step forward with its future generation of excavators. The company will own, design, and build these excavators from the ground up. The new lineup of excavators made its debut at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2023 in Las Vegas, showcasing models like the 145 P-Tier, 210 P-Tier, and 360 P-Tier.
Strategic Design for Innovation
John Deere is excited about the future of its excavator lineup. The new machines leverage customer feedback and decades of John Deere's global excavator experience to bring innovative and game-changing features. With complete design control, John Deere can now be fully involved in the development process.
A Glimpse into the Future
The machines displayed at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2023 were just examples of what's to come. John Deere plans wide-scale pre-production testing with dealers and customers later this year. The introduction of new models will happen gradually, ensuring a staggered timeline.
The P-Tier Designation and More
John Deere expects most of the new models to fall under the P-Tier designation in its naming strategy. P-Tier represents advanced features and performance, while G-Tier is for the economy model. Additionally, X-Tier models will offer hybrid diesel-electric technology and the most advanced features.
Leveraging Technology and Expertise
With full design control, John Deere can leverage technology and expertise from across its entire enterprise. The company will integrate concepts and technology from wheel loaders, road-building equipment, and agricultural machinery. By utilizing pre-existing partnerships and agreements, John Deere aims to deliver impactful machines to customers.
John Deere focuses on several value propositions for its future generation excavators:
Dependability and Durability: The new machines will build upon the already excellent dependability and durability of John Deere's current excavators. Enhancements such as new joint designs, upsized components, and stronger booms and arms will take reliability to the next level.
Unrivaled Performance: The future generation excavators will be EH controlled, aiming to be the best in class for real performance. Side-by-side comparisons will demonstrate their exceptional capabilities.
Elevated Operator Experience: Attracting and retaining talented operators is a priority for John Deere. The new cab design, intuitive controls, displays, and technology will enhance the operator experience. Even on reduced tail swing machines, the cab will remain full-sized, offering ample space and comfort.
Differentiation through Technology: John Deere plans to differentiate itself by integrating advanced technology into the excavator designs. Grade control, obstacle intelligence systems, and connectivity to the operation center will be available. Customers will have various options for precision and real-time information.
Customizable and Upgradable: The future generation machines will be highly customizable and upgradable. Base machines will easily accept software-only upgrades or software combined with external hardware. This flexibility allows customers to choose the level of technology that suits their needs.
The Future of Excavators
John Deere's complete design control ensures the future generation of excavators will deliver exceptional value. The company's focus on dependability, performance, operator experience, and technology sets new benchmarks for the industry. Stay tuned for further updates on the comprehensive lineup of excavators that will revolutionize the construction and excavation sector.
