The 313 has a standard hydraulic flow of 15 gallons per minute. For the 315, while standard flow is 16 gallons per minute, also offered is a high-flow option of 25 gallons per minute. Bucket breakout is 3,300 foot-pounds for both new Deere skid-steers, while boom breakout is 2,800 foot-pounds for the 313 and 3,900 foot-pounds for the 315.
