John Deere has added updates to its 310L EP Backhoe and 210L EP Tractor Loader, concentrating on engine technology and other model adjustments to enhance productivity and uptime while lowering daily operating costs.
Brian Hennings, product marketing manager, backhoes and tractor loaders, John Deere Construction & Forestry said of the new upgrades: “Our goal is to continue to support the ‘EP strategy’ and to offer an effective backhoe solution under the 56-kW power level, which allows for greater flexibility to meet emission regulations. This solution offers rental customers simpler technology, reduced maintenance requirements, greater reliability and a lower acquisition price.”
The 310L EP and 210L EP are both powered by a Yanmar 3.3L Interim Tier 4 diesel engine. At 69-horsepower (51-kW), it satisfies EPA FT4 emission regulations without aftertreatment while also minimizing machine complexity and the number of parts needed for maintenance.
A new variable displacement hydraulic pump provides increased flow and enhanced power management: as the engine load increases, the pump regulates flow to balance the power split between hydraulics and the transmission.
Moreover, both John Deere tractor loaders, the 210L EP and 210L, have heightened performance. Increased hydraulic pump flow and larger diameter hoses and tubes quicken loader lift times by 26%, while loader lift capacity has been increased by 18 percent, from 5,342 lbs. to 6,340 lbs.
The 310L EP Backhoe and 210L EP Tractor Loader are guaranteed by John Deere’s Ultimate Uptime, which gives owners predelivery and follow-up inspections including five years of JDLink telematics, machine health prognostics, remote diagnostics and programming capabilities, as well as the ability to add dealer-provided uptime solutions to a customized package.
Established in 1837 and based in Moline, Illinois, USA, John Deere is one of the most trusted brands in the agricultural, construction and forestry sectors.
