310L Backhoe Loaders

Why run two machines when one will do? The 310L Backhoe is one of our most versatile backhoes ever, with a rugged EPA Final Tier 4 Stage IV PowerTech Plus diesel engine, gear changes on the go, and an optional limited-slip mechanical-front-wheel drive. The redesigned pilot tower gives more legroom and space to rotate to keep your productivity maximized.

Features & Benefits


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 efficient, fully integrated, and fully supported.


True four-wheel drive on command. Optional limited-slip mechanical-front-wheel drive 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.


PowerShift transmission provides on-the-go clutchless gear changes, for the operator.

Cab comfort

L-Series Backhoes are loaded with creature comforts, including efficient HVAC system, adjustable mechanical or air-suspension seat, and optional premium radio with Bluetooth, auxiliary input, and XM Satellite Radio capability.


New “palm-on-top” loader-control grip is even more comfortable and easy to use. Control of clutch disconnect, transmission quick-shift, auxiliary proportional roller, and momentary front-wheel-drive is at your fingertips.

Fingertip electrohydraulic (EH)

Fingertip electrohydraulic (EH) control of redesigned pilot levers provides even easier operation of backhoe functions, including the horn and selective flow.


State-of-the-art multi-language monitor clearly displays machine diagnostics. Operators can program a multitude of time-specific functions such as auto shutdown and auto-idle quickly and easily.


The exclusive John Deere WorkSight suite of telematic solutions includes JDLink Ultimate with real-time machine monitoring and remote diagnostics to help increase uptime while lowering operating costs.

Oil options

L-Series Backhoes come factory-filled with Hydrau premium all-season, anti-wear hydraulic oil specifically designed for construction equipment. Or for cold weather, opt for Hydrau XR, which offers all-season protection from –40 to 40 deg. C.


Same-side ground-level service points help speed daily checks and fills. Other features such as quick-change filters, extended service intervals, simple-to-read sight gauges, and easy-access grease zerks help increase uptime and lower daily costs.
