January 12, 2023  By Larry Stewart

During a keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show CES 2023, John Deere CEO John May revealed two new technologies – the 145 X-Tier electric excavator and a high-tech planting system – designed to help customers be more productive, profitable, and sustainable.

John Deere Construction & Forestry is pursuing a stated goal of introducing more than 20 electric and hybrid-electric construction equipment models by 2026.

The electric excavator, powered by an immersion-cooled Kreisel battery, is expected to reduce daily operating costs and jobsite noise, and improve machine reliability without sacrificing power or emitting exhaust on site.
