Trust John Deere PowerTech™ 4.5L engines to provide the muscle needed to power through any workday. Field-proven wet-sleeve design with replaceable cylinder liners provides uniform cooling and aids in reducing oil breakdown and ring wear.
Now with pressure-compensated load-sensing (PCLS) hydraulics, the 310SL features provide increased productivity and smooth multifunction control, with increased cycle times improving trenching productivity by 16 percent over the prior 310SL design. Trenching operation can be conducted at a lower engine rpm, reducing fuel consumption and jobsite noise. The 310SL delivers all the advantages of PCLS hydraulics in the 14-foot digging-depth category, enabling operator efficiency and productivity through improved multifunction control.
Responsive and productive PowerShift transmission provides smooth, on-the-go clutchless gear changes for the operator. Standard AutoShift enhances operator ease of use. Simply set the control lever to the highest gear desired, and the transmission will optimally shift based on engine rpm and ground speed.
Limited-slip mechanical-front-wheel drive (MFWD) delivers surefooted traction in any ground condition. Engage momentary MFWD “on the fly” with the touch of a button on the loader control.
L-Series pilot towers optimize legroom and space for transitioning between loader and backhoe operation. Enhanced “palm-on-top” loader-control grip is comfortable and easy to use. Redesigned loader-lever linkage reduces resistance and improves its throw and feel, decreasing lever travel by up to 15 percent.
