John Deere J-Series backhoe-loaderJohn Deere J-Series backhoe-loaders — models 310J, 310SJ, 410J and 710J — incorporate new power-train components and numerous structural and electrical enhancements. Horsepower ratings for these new models are 92, 95, 95 and 122, respectively. Digging depths are 14.25, 14.50, 15.83 and 17.83 feet, respectively, and operating weights range from around 16,000 to 25,500 pounds. The models feature ZF powershift transmissions, as well as ZF front axles and rear axles. The Total Machine Control (TMC) option for the 310SJ and 410J models, says Deere, “provides the best features of an excavator and a four-wheel-drive loader built into one machine.” TMC, says the company, “integrates control of every system in the machine, from engine to transmission and hydraulic functions to brakes.”
