John Deere announced on May 3 that it has added a new machine, the 710L, to its L-Series lineup of backhoe loaders.
The new model will provide a 17-foot 3-inch dig depth, making it the largest in John Deere’s L-Series backhoe loader portfolio. It is being marketed as an ideal machine for loading trucks, placing pipe and digging trenches.
The 710L has a Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV-certified 4.5-liter PowerTech engine, which meets all of today’s emissions standards. It also provides 13 percent more net peak horsepower (148 horsepower) than John Deere’s K-Series model.
"Customers need an advantage to meet project deadlines and deliver results, and the backhoe is one of the most well-regarded and resourceful pieces of equipment on the job site," said Brian Hennings, product marketing manager of backhoes and tractor loaders for John Deere Construction & Forestry. "The 710L provides a huge leg up with added lift capability and an improved rear control valve for enhanced controllability as well as productivity-boosting features and unmatched reliability and uptime."
The John Deere 710L also has a PowerShift transmission for driving speeds up to 23 miles per hour. Its sealed-switch module provides an additional 10 percent craning boost. Inside the cab, operators can utilize fingertip hydraulic controls and features, such as auto shutdown and auto idle.
