The John Deere standard excavator line consists of eight excavators up to 285-net-horsepower. Digging depths range from 13 feet, 7 inches on the 190E to 29 feet, 11 inches on the 450 LC with optional arm. They feature a highly efficient, variable-flow hydraulic system and an automatic engine idling system, the company says. Ease of operation is highlighted by two-lever, low-effort pilot controls.
