John Deere has introduced eight K-Series backhoe loaders (310K EP, 310K, 310SK, 310SK TC, 315SK, 410K, 410K TC, 710K), and two tractor loader models (210K EP, 210K).

The new K-Series meets today’s emission regulations. Powered by a certified T4-I John Deere PowerTech engine, the K-Series comes equipped with a five-speed transmission that allows top speeds of 25 mph when roading. An optional AutoShift transmission enables smooth shifting and improves operator comfort by reducing the number of times the Transmission Control Lever needs to be actuated during operation, Deere says. A single loader lever with integrated electro-hydraulic auxiliary loader control eliminates the need for a second lever when using a multi-purpose bucket. In addition, a complete redesign of the cab ventilation now circulates cab air from front-to-back, directing airflow where operators need it the most.

Enhancements were also made to John Deere’s industry-exclusive Total Machine Control backhoes. According to the company, updates include a joystick redesign that gives operators easier operation with equal lever efforts in all directions for smooth and productive operation, as well as improved swing control that allows for more precise trench work with less backhoe wag.

The 210K EP and 310K EP are two new models designed specifically for rental and large contractor customers. The EP models provide a 70-horsepower engine with T4-I power without needing any aftertreatment technology. This eliminates the need for additional operator training or extra monitoring of machines that have numerous operators focused primarily on quickly getting on and off a machine to get a job done.

In addition to the backhoe loaders, the 210K EP and 210K tractor loaders deliver maximum seat rotation, dual-tilt rear cylinders, and tilt steering, and are designed for paving and grading applications. With strong visibility, ride control, limited slip front axles, and a single lever for controlling a loader with auxiliary hydraulics, this tractor is also ideal for loading, Deere says.
