John Deere 160G LC: Key Features


The EPA FT4/EU Stage IV engine employs field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), high-uptime exhaust filters that are easy to maintain, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR)

Ash-service intervals for the diesel particulate filter (DPF) are condition based, with the machine notifying the operator before service is required.

Highly efficient hydraulically driven fans run only as fast as needed, reducing noise, fuel consumption, and operating costs. Reversing option automatically back-blows cooler cores to keep them clean. The cooling systems keep things running cool, even in high-trash environments and high altitudes.


Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth, predictable fingertip control with less movement and effort.

Push buttons in the right lever allow predictable control of auxiliary hydraulic flow for operating attachments. Optional sliding switch provides proportional speed control.


Three productivity modes allow you to 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.

  • Economy limits top speed and helps save fuel.


Hood design, expanded front and side glass, narrow front cab posts, overhead glass, and numerous mirrors provide optimal visibility.


Large fuel tanks and 500- and 5,000-hour engine and hydraulic oil-service intervals decrease downtime for routine maintenance. Fluid-sample and remote diagnostic ports help speed preventative maintenance and troubleshooting.
