Deere's 75D mid-sized hydraulic excavator features tungsten-carbide coated surfaces and oil-impregnated boom, arm, and bucket bushings.

Deere's 75D mid-sized hydraulic excavator was designed for tight places, such as those encountered in light-residential, site-development, underground, and landscaping applications. The conventional boom, reduced tail swing machine has a mass of 17,637 lb (8000 kg) and a dig depth of over 15 ft (4.5 m). Its arm breakout force is 7194 lb (32 kN).

It is powered by a 54-net hp (40 kW) diesel, certified to U.S. EPA Interim Tier 4 emissions standards, that uses Deere’s exclusive Powerwise engine/hydraulic management system to maximize power output, save fuel, and deliver smooth, multifunction operation.

Deere says that added productivity does not necessarily mean more fuel consumption. The excavator’s “E” working mode saves fuel by running more efficiently compared to the previous model’s “P” mode, while providing similar production. An auto-idle feature "helps make the most out of every drop of fuel," it claims.

The drawbar pull delivers ample power for backfilling trenches or maneuvering around the job site. Its available lift height and reach make truck loading easy, even on trucks with high sideboards. An optional control pattern selector valve lets the operator go with ease from backhoe- to excavator-style controls.

Optional rubber tracks enable operators to cross driveways and sidewalks without damage, just the ticket for landscaping and utility jobs on existing properties. A pilot-control operated box-constructed integral blade is available for grading and backfilling.

A spacious, isolation-mounted cab offers what Deere describes as "virtually unrestricted" visibility and ergonomically arranged controls. Machine operations can be monitored on the intuitive, multifunction LCD screen. The cab also features automatic climate control, AM/FM radio, and a deluxe-suspension multi-position seat.

Tungsten-carbide coated surfaces and oil-impregnated boom, arm and bucket bushings contribute to long-term durability. Large, easy-to-open service doors provide ample access to dipsticks, sight gauges, and spin-on vertical engine and hydraulic filters for simple daily and periodic servicing.
