The Moline-based manufacturer is also adding a dual joystick option on all
'Our G-Series lineup is all about offering contractors and governmental customers the grader of 'choice,' allowing them to choose the right machine for their application. Customers asked for a lighter and more fuel-efficient grader, and the 620G and 622G answer the call,' said
Both the 620G and 622G boast the fuel-efficient Final Tier 4 6.8L
The new dual joystick option provides intuitive control for operators who prefer joystick control to the standard antler rack. Hand motion is minimized during direction changes and gear shifting. In contrast to the competition, this option provides improved comfort of controls by eliminating the need to 'twist' for blade circle or articulation.
Other updates to the G-Series line include the addition of a 7-inch (17.7 cm), high-resolution reverse camera monitor that provides a clear picture to the operator when reversing around obstacles. Standard courtesy lighting turns on the machine lights as the operator exits the machine at the end of the day, which is especially important in dark conditions. On GP models, ripper-stow quickly returns the ripper to its fully raised position at the end of pass simply by double-tapping the control.
The G-Series features eight models (620G/GP, 622G/GP, 670G/GP, 672G/GP, 770G/GP, 772G/GP, 870G/GP, 872G/GP) with net horsepower ranging from 215 to 300 (160.4 to 223.8 kilowatts). Four of the units - the 622G/GP, 672G/GP, 772G/GP and 872G/GP - feature six-wheel drive, enabling them to power through the toughest cuts with power flowing to all wheels. Six-wheel drive gives operators increased traction, the ability to get more work done in fewer blading passes and a 30-percent increase in blade pull.
Fleet managers looking to get the most out of their G-Series motor graders can rely on their
