Coming in at 51-metric tons, the 510 P-Tier is a replacement of the current 470 P-Tier model. Including a variable undercarriage and the ability to handle buckets five yards and above, this new model will continue to deliver exceptional performance and capability in its class, while specifically targeting customer enhancements in operating costs and reliability. By using a more efficient powertrain, including the integration of E-fans, this new model provides customers up to 25% lower maintenance costs, 15% lower repair costs and 20% lower fuel consumption. This machine is designed to deliver exceptional performance to customers in mass excavation or deep underground applications while providing significant improvement in the cost of ownership.
"We are beyond excited about the future of our excavator line-up, including the new models available to our customers today and the machines being strategically designed and built for tomorrow," said Aaron Klauer, global product manager, mid-and-large size excavators, John Deere. "We are constantly listening to the needs of the industry, and our future generation excavator models not only leverage what we've learned from our customers, but also utilizes John Deere's decades of global excavator experience to bring the most innovative and game-changing machines to market."
