John Deere Backhoes L Series

Why run two machines when one will do? Whether you’re loading trucks, placing pipe, digging trenches, or moving materials, a L-Series Backhoe is more than up to the task. Building upon John Deere’s highly productive K-Series Backhoes, the L-Series features additional backhoe lift capability and pressure-compensated load-sensing (PCLS) hydraulics (on the 310SL HL and 410L), for superb multifunction performance.

Four-wheel drive

True four-wheel drive on command
Standard limited-slip mechanical-frontwheel drive (optional on the 310L EP and 310L) 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.


Powertrain performance

Responsive and productive fivespeed transmission on the 310SL, 310SL HL, 315SL, and 410L provides transport speeds up to 25 mph. Add the AutoShift option and increase versatility in any application.


Powerful FT4 engines

Rugged FT4/Stage IV PowerTech™ Plus diesel engines* meet rigid emission regulations, enabling you to work, wherever there’s work — even in nonattainment areas. Our field-proven technology is simple, fluid, effcient, fully integrated and fully supported. It employs cooled exhaust gas recirculation, easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters (310SL HL and 410L only), and selective catalytic reduction.
