John Deere backhoe upgrades

Nov. 22, 2020

John Deere, Moline, Ill., has updated the company’s L-Series backhoe lineup to include engine upgrades, pressure-compensated load-sensing (PCLS) hydraulics on the 310SL model and machine control improvements. The 310L, 310SL, 315SL, 310SL HL and 410L models are now equipped with a 4.5 liter John Deere PowerTech™ EWL engine, increasing power and improving torque. The Tier 4 engine boosts horsepower across the models.

The redesign also includes improved filter locations for easier access when changing or servicing fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) filters. Already offered on the 310SL HL, 410L and 710L, the PCLS system results in increased productivity and improved backhoe controllability at any engine speed, the company says.

The 310SL is now equipped with Lift Mode. When enabled, it automatically sets the engine speed to 1,400 rpm and increases max hydraulic pressure to 4,000 psi, increasing backhoe lift capacity. Additionally, buttons for the horn, selective flow, auxiliary proportional roller and extendable dipper stick have been integrated into the backhoe pilot controls, improving ease of use.
