Equipped with durable EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV diesel engines, the excavators meet rigid emission regulations, The 135G boasts 101 horsepower, while the 245G LC nets out at 159 horsepower.
The 135G and 245G LC maximize efficiency with a Powerwise III hydraulic system that balances engine performance with hydraulic flow for predictable operation. Three productivity modes let operators choose the digging style that fits the job. High productivity delivers more power and faster hydraulic response to move more material, power delivers a balance of power, speed and fuel economy for normal operation, and economy reduces top speed and helps save fuel.
Comfort is at a premium inside the cab with sculpted mechanical-suspension high-back seats and a standard air-suspension heated seat in the 245G LC. A multi-language LCD monitor and rotary dial provide intuitive access to a wealth of information and functions. The excavators also include an automatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers to help keep the glass clear and the cab comfortable.
