John Deere Completes G-Series Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders Lineup with Addition of Mid-Frame Models
Original source: John Deere

Screen Shot 2018-01-29 at 3.36.46 PM.png Designed for construction, agricultural, rental, landscape and governmental customers seeking superior performance and versatility from their machines, the new John Deere G-Series mid-frame skid steers and compact track loader (CTL) offer a powerful tool for jobs of any scale.

Developed from customer feedback, the 320G and 324G skid steers, and the 325G compact track loader offer low daily operating costs, peak productivity and maximum uptime. The new mid-frame models join their large and small-frame counterparts to round out the full line of skid steers/CTLs available from John Deere.

"The mid-frame G-series models are packed with the productivity and technologies of our large-frame models, but in a more compact package and at a lower price point," said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager, skid steers and compact track loaders, John Deere Construction & Forestry. "Inspired by extensive feedback from a diverse range of customers in our Customer Advocacy Group, these machines are affordable, easy to operate, easily transported and offer unparalleled versatility with a multitude of attachment options."

The new mid-frame models boast a 69–74 (52–55 kW) horsepower range to deliver increased performance and higher pushing power. All three models are capable of loading a 10-foot (3 m) sidewall dump truck or hopper, and to help operators reach new heights in a medium-sized package, the 324G skid steer and 325GCTL boast a height to hinge pin of 10 feet, 6 inches (3.20 m). Industry-leading breakout forces and auxiliary flow provide superior attachment performance, while optional ride control and bucket self-level combination reduce material spillage and make for a smoother ride over rough and uneven terrain.

The new models have the same pressurized cabs of their large-frame counterparts, designed to keep out excess dust and noise, but are built with a smaller width and weight for contained job site areas. Knowing that a comfortable operator is a productive operator, cab enhancements include heated seats, Bluetooth® radio, a rearview camera and an industry-leading deluxe LED lighting package that provides increased durability and 50 percent more visibility over standard equipped halogen lights. For simpler serviceability, a footwell clean-out makes debris management easier than ever, minimizing costly downtime. Cab-side windows remove easily for cleaning. An in-cab boom lock-out system makes maintenance safer and more secure when the boom is raised.

These new mid-frames now offer the same popular features as their smaller and larger G-series counterparts, including proven Yanmar FT4 engine systems. Flexible control choices allow contractors to choose between standard manual foot and hand controls, (EH) ISO joystick controls switchable between ISO- and H-patterns, and performance package options for adjusting drive system response, boom and bucket speeds, or for setting creep mode on demand.

Additionally, 4G JDLink Ultimate machine monitoring provides real-time data and health prognostics to suggest maintenance solutions that decrease costly downtime and protect against machine theft. Remote diagnostics enable a dealer to read codes, record performance data and even update software without a trip to the job site.
