Ride Control

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



  • 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.



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



  • 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.



  • 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.
