John Deere Backhoe Loaders
Hitachi Construction Machinery Australia is proud to announce the arrival of the new John Deere K Series backhoe loaders. The productive and efficient 310SK and 315SK models build on the success of the popular J Series, to deliver productivity, uptime and lower daily operating costs.
Powered by a John Deere PowerTech™ engine and equipped with a five-speed transmission, the new backhoes are capable of reaching top speeds up to 40 km/h. An AutoShift transmission provides smooth shifting and improved operator comfort by reducing the number of times the Transmission Control Lever (TCL) needs to be actuated during operation.
A single loader lever with integrated electro-hydraulic (EH) 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.
Product updates include a joystick redesign that gives operators even 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.
As you’d expect from John Deere, the new K Series are packed with features to maximise machine uptime. These include improved engine access and a cooling package design allowing each of the coolers to be separated for easy cleaning. To protect the machine on the jobsite, a Sealed Switch Model (SSM) comes standard with machine security. Differential Lock Protection can be easily activated through the monitor and prevents potential damage from the rear differential lock being engaged at higher than required speeds.
In an effort to lower daily operating costs, the new models integrate smart technology with auto idle, auto shutdown and keyless start. These features come standard on all machines equipped with SSM. In addition, an economy mode setting provides a ‘sweet spot’ for optimal fuel savings.
Several customer inspired features include a multi-plate clutch engagement enabling on-the-fly Mechanical Front Wheel Driver (MFWD) engagement, proven PowerShift transmission, best-in-class deluxe lighting package, exclusive multi-language digital monitor for on-board diagnostics, as well as same-side, ground level daily service for easy maintenance checks.
