John Deere newest C-Series excavators, the zero tail swing 75C is suitable work in confined job sites, like urban renewal projects in big cities and landscaping applications.
The 75C features a 54 hp (72 kW) Isuzu CC-4JG1 engine with Deere's Powerwize II engine/hydraulic system, which senses and delivers additional power when needed, while balancing hydraulic pressure and flow.
The 75C's single work mode allows different operations, from heavy-duty excavation to finish grading, to be done easily without having to switch modes for the different applications.
Maintenance requirements have been extended with a 500-hour oil change interval, 4000-hour hydraulic oil change interval, powdered metal oil-impregnated bushings, tungsten carbide coated arm surface, and a 500-hour greasing interval.
Thanks to an auto acceleration feature, which cuts fuel consumption by 8%, a rugged front attachment mechanism, anti-rust aluminum radiator and oil cooler, and simple lubrication and filter replacement running costs have also been lowered.
The 75C also features an integral backfilling blade that is a part of the machine's chassis and takes full advantage of the 12350 lbs (5607 kg) of drawbar pull. In addition to backfilling, the blade is well suited for landscaping, fine grading and cutting sidewalks and driveways.
The new cab features climate control, tinted sunroof, a fully adjustable seat with lumbar support, a 12-volt cell phone jack, and a drinks cooler and cup holder.
