Whether you're loading trucks, digging trenches, demolishing structures, or placing pipe, you'll get more done with our 380G LC Excavators — with heavy-duty boom, rugged undercarriage, durable 3.2-m (10 ft. 6 in.) arm, and extra counterweight. Its rugged EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV PowerTech™ diesel engine meets rigid emission regulations, enabling you to work, everywhere there's work — without compromising power, reliability, or ease of operation. Customer-inspired refinements include a comfortable, spacious cab. And an enhanced LCD monitor with simplified navigation that lets an operator easily dial-in a wealth of machine information and functionality. Exceptional power, smoothness, and ease of operation — the 380G LC delivers all you've come to expect in a John Deere excavator. And then some.
- Final Tier 4-certified diesel engine.
- Standard heavy-duty boom.
- Heavy-duty 3.2 m (10 ft. 6 in.) arm.
- Heavy-duty undercarriage and frame
- Larger hood for improved engine access.
- Generous flow, arm force, and swing torque help speed cycles. So you can do your best to stay on schedule or ahead of the weather.
- Powerwise™ III perfectly balances engine performance and hydraulic flow for predictable operation. 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.
- Low-effort joysticks, unmatched metering, and smooth multifunction operation deliver the control and finesse you need for utility work.
- When the task calls for a little extra, simply press the power-boost button on the right-hand control and muscle through
- Auto-idle automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren't in use. Auto-shutdown further preserves precious fuel.
- Optional cab, hood, and right-side boom lights provide extra illumination to extend your workday beyond normal daylight hours.
Engine and Cooling:
- A rugged EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV PowerTech™ diesel engine meets rigid emission regulations, enabling you to work, wherever there's work — without compromising power, reliability, or ease of operation.
- Our field-proven technology is simple, fluid efficient, fully integrated, and fully supported. It employs field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters, 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, heavy-duty cooling system keeps things cool, even in tough environments or high altitudes. Optional reversing fan back-blows cooler cores to reduce debris buildup. It's a welcome addition that helps increase uptime.
- Cooler cores' 10-fin-per-inch spacing lets trash easily pass to resist plugging.
Structures and Undercarriage:
- A new hood design ensures optimal visibility to the sides and rear, even with the increased under-the-hood space requirements of EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV components.
- A John Deere exclusive, three welded bulkheads within the boom resist torsional stress for unsurpassed durability. Booms, arms, and mainframes are so tough; they're warranted for three years or 10,000 hours.
- Tungsten-carbide coating creates an extremely wear-resistant surface to protect the all-important bucket-to-arm joint. Oil-impregnated bushings enhance durability and extend grease intervals to 500 hours for the arm-and-boom joint and 100 hours for the bucket joint.
- Thick-plate single-sheet mainframe, box-section track frames, and industry- exclusive double-seal swing bearing deliver rock-solid durability.
- With large idlers, rollers, and strutted links, the sealed and lubricated under-carriage delivers long and reliable performance.
- Reinforced D-channel side frames provide maximum cab and component protection.
