Backhoe Loader: Updated Features
Deere’s 310SL HL, 410L and 710L backhoe loaders are now available with new features. The machines now have a precision mode that allows for reduced-speed hydraulics when operating the backhoe. The pilot controller has been improved, offering smoother operation when accelerating or decelerating. The rear hydraulic coupler has also been redesigned, greatly reducing the amount of time it takes to switch out attachments.
