Compact Design

Filling the gap between the 26G and the 35G, the 30G delivers impressive bucket force, arm force, breakout force, and lift capacity, to power through tough digging conditions.

  • Reduced-tail-swing design makes G-Series machines extra maneuverable and productive.
  • Transports easily between jobsites

Go from backhoe- to excavator-style controls with the twist of a wrist. Control pattern selector valve is conveniently located in a compartment beneath the seat and includes a sight glass that displays the selected pattern.

High-torque, fuel-efficient diesels meet EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV emission standards without after-treatment devices ™ reducing maintenance and expense.

  • Large entryways, unrestricted sightlines, spacious operator stations deliver comfort, convenience, and visibility
  • Optional cab’s front glass is expansive for exceptional visibility

Quick Coupler System Quick Coupler System

Think of changing attachments as a system. With the quick connect auxiliary couplers and the manual quick coupler for attachments, changeover to the next attachment is quick with minimal downtime.  When using hydraulic attachments, the auxiliary selector valve lets you quickly choose between attachment one-way and two-way flows.

  • The standard selector valve allows the connection of two attachments at the same time. Supply/return oil can be diverted from one to the other by changing the valve position.
  • John Deere augers can be equipped with numerous sizes of rock, heavy-duty, standard, and tree/shrub bits.
  • Hydraulic hammers are perfect for quarry or trench work and concrete removal. Use them to break rock, concrete flatwork, and walls; around rebar; or to a precut line.
  • The clamp, sometimes referred to as a thumb, can be used in conjunction with buckets. This aids in the removal of material if it is bulky and does not fit into the bucket completely.
Additional details
Wide variety of buckets and attachments Wide variety of buckets and attachments
  • Compact excavators use common buckets and attachments that customers who own other John Deere compact machines may already have in their fleets.

Backfill Blade Backfill Blade

Make a sizable impact on your productivity and profitability with the backfill blade. The backfill blade can be used to level and backfill trenches. It is the same width as the undercarriage width. The blade can add versatility by using the blade and bucket to clamp and carry pipe, rocks, or other bulky items. A bolt-on cutting edge is available as optional equipment for the backfill blade.

  • Backfill blade adds versatility, enabling these compact excavators to grade and fill.
  • Provides extra stability with attachments or when working on uneven terrain.

Power modes (30, 35, 50, and 60) Power modes (30, 35, 50, and 60)

Low daily operating costs with improved fuel economy and economy/power modes. These machines have improved fuel economy over the previous series.

  • Auto-idle automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use.
  • Auto shutdown further conserves precious fuel.
  • Power/economy modes optimize power for digging applications and significantly improve fuel efficiency.

Operator comfort with larger cab Operator comfort with larger cab

With large entryways and virtually unrestricted sightlines, the G-Series’ spacious operator stations deliver all the comfort, convenience, and visibility operators need to bring out their best. Their ergonomically designed operator stations are built to accommodate even larger operators.

  • Spacious operator stations have wide entryways, making entrance and exit easier than ever
  • Optional cab’s front glass is expansive, for exceptional visibility and higher productivity
  • An adjustable work light at the top left of the canopy or cab increases job efficiency at night
  • A slip resistant entry is provided for safe access to the operator’s seat
  • Foldable travel pedals increase foot and leg room
  • A suspension seat is standard from the factory
  • All controls are conveniently located to the operator’s right include the optional radio.
  • Pilot control levers enable an operator to control the boom, bucket, arm, and swing functions.
  • Automatic, high-velocity bi-level climate-control system with automotive-style adjustable louvers helps keep the glass clear and the operator comfortable
  • Control pattern selector valve is conveniently located in a compartment beneath the seat and includes a sight glass that displays the selected pattern
Additional Details
Canopy option Canopy option
  • All canopies and cabs meet the following safety requirements:
    • Tip Over Protective Structure (TOPS), Roll Over Protective Structure (ROPS), and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS)
  • The optional cab comes standard with a heater
  • Both the cab and canopy units come with a step area for entry and exit
Automatic shifting Automatic shifting
  • An auto speed change system for high speed travel is employed.
  • The turtle speed lock switch will keep the machine in low when propelling.
  • The rabbit speed lock will always keep the unit in the higher mode unless a large load is applied to travel like steering changes.
  • The machine will then automatically shift to low but return to high when the load is reduced.

Extended maintenance intervals enable the machine to remain working for longer periods of productive work before the need to service. This greatly increases uptime and productivity of the unit. Hinged door provides wide-open access to the side-by-side oil cooler and radiator. Cooler design resists trash buildup and allows easier core cleanout. Access is quick and convenient.

  • Extended oil change and greasing intervals contribute to low daily operating costs.
  • Oil impregnated bushings allow the unit to extend grease intervals. Not only does it increase the time between greasing of the unit, this greatly reduces the chances of a problem occurring due to improper maintenance causing downtime to the operation.
  • The additional service door allows the operator and technician better access to components during daily service checks and routine maintenance for improved uptime.
  • No aftertreatment devices needed reducing maintenance and expense.
  • Parts and service are available at over 1,400 John Deere dealers throughout North America.
  • Wet-disc swing brake provides long-term maintenance-free performance.
Additional Details
Tilt cab Tilt cab
  • When maintenance or repair is required, simply use the tilt tool to raise the cab forward to an industry leading 50 degrees. This allows easy access to many components under the floor.

Compact excavator undercarriage Compact excavator undercarriage

The X-frame undercarriage is similar to that of larger excavators, and it is designed to shed dirt and debris from the track frames. A track adjuster is located in each track frame and can be adjusted using a standard high pressure grease gun.

  • Track sag adjustment is conveniently located in the center of the frame to maintain proper track tension and maximize undercarriage life.
