Posted By admin On January 29, 2008 @ 12:00 am In Boomerang | No Comments

The John Deere 160D LC is a 39,000 pound, 121-horsepower mid-size excavator that offers smooth maneuvering and precision control along with strong digging forces and outstanding lift capability, reach and swing torque. It is the perfect machine for dig and run jobs like excavating basements because it transports so easily between jobsites.


For More Productivity


 


·        Tier 3 updates have resulted in more digging force, swing torque, drawbar pull, and lift capability


 


·        Powerwise III engine/hydraulic management system perfectly balances engine performance and hydraulic flow for fast, smooth and


predictable operation


 


·        Hydraulically driven, highly efficient fan runs only as needed to


reduce noise, fuel consumption and operating costs


 


·        Reversing option automatically back-blows cooler cores to reduce debris buildup


 


·        Best-in-class metering and superb multifunction operation provides precision maneuvering


 


.     Hydraulic recirculation system delivers more efficient flow to the boom and arm, speeding multifunction operation and cycle times


 


 


For Superb Operator Comfort


 


·        47 percent more glass with narrow front cab posts, large tinted overhead hatch and numerous mirrors provide virtual, unobstructed all-around visibility


 


·        Silicone-filled cab mounts effectively isolate operators from noise and vibration


 


·        Deluxe-suspension multi-position seat provides 10.5 inches of travel for great adjustability


 


·        Ergonomic short-throw pilot levers provide smooth and predictable low-effort control


·        Convenient 12-volt port powers cell phones and other electronic devices


 


 


For Long-term Durability


 


·        Graphite-iron wet-sleeve cylinder liners, mono-steel pistons, and large-diameter connecting rods ensure long-term engine durability


 


·        Oil-impregnated bushings enhance durability and extend grease intervals to 500 hours (100 hours for the bucket joint)


 


·        Reinforced resin thrust plates increase boom lube intervals to 500 hours


 


·        Extra tough boom, arms, and mainframe are warranted for three years or 10,000 hours


 


·        Tungsten-carbide coating creates wear-resistant surface to protect the bucket-to-arm joint


 


.        Box-section track frames, thick-plate single-sheet mainframe and large swing bearing offer even more durability


 


 


For Simplified Maintenance


 


·        Machine Information Center captures and stores vital machine performance and utilization data


 


·        Large fuel tank and 500- and 5,000-hour engine and hydraulic oil-service intervals enable the 160D LC to work longer between scheduled service stops


 


·        Easy-to-navigate LCD color monitor tracks up to 14 maintenance intervals and lets an operator check 32 machine operating parameters at the touch of a button


 


·        Wide-fin spacing lets trash easily pass through cores to resist plugging


 


·        Centralized lube banks place difficult-to-lube zerks within easy reach


 


·        Remote diagnostic and fluid-sample ports speed preventive maintenance and troubleshooting
