  • Ride Control

    Ride control, front loader hydraulic cylinders act as a shock absorber, smoothing travel over rough terrain.

  • Mechanical-Front-Wheel-Drive

    True four-wheel drive on command. Standard limited-slip mechanical-front-wheel drive delivers superior traction in any ground condition. Engage momentary mechanical-front-wheel drive “on the fly” with the touch of a button on the new loader control.

  • Engine

    Economy mode on our FT4/Stage IV PowerTech Plus diesel engine saves fuel by configuring separately between loader and backhoe functions.

  • Transmission

    Standard John Deere PowerShift™ transmission provides on-the-go gear changes; ride control option smoothes moves over rough terrain.

  • Cab and Controls

    Redesigned pilot towers provide more legroom and additional space for transitioning between loader and backhoe operation.

    Multi-function lever, fingertip electrohydraulic lever control, and palm-on-top loader-control grip makes operation even easier.

  • Easy Maintenance

    Same-side, ground-level service points help speed daily checks and fills. Other common-sense features such as quick-change filters, extended service intervals, simple-to-read sight gauges, and easy-access grease zerks help increase uptime and lower daily operating costs.

  • Security

    Machine-security system with touchpad passcode helps prevent unauthorized operation.

  • Craning Capacity

    Craning capacity, or rear backhoe lift, is increased up to 25 percent from the 310SK. An additional 10–15-percent increase in craning capacity is activated through Lift Mode at the push of a button on the convenient sealed switch module.
