Ride Control

Ride control, front loader hydraulic cylinders act as a shock absorber, smoothing travel over rough terrain.


True four-wheel drive on command. Standard 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.


Economy mode on our FT4/Stage IV PowerTech Plus diesel engine saves fuel by configuring separately between loader and backhoe functions.


Standard John Deere PowerShift™ transmission provides on-the-go gear changes; ride control option smoothes moves over rough terrain.

Cab and Controls

Redesigned pilot towers provide more legroom and additional space for transitioning between loader and backhoe operation.

Multifunction lever, fingertip electrohydraulic lever control, and palm-on-top loader-control grip makes operation even easier.

Easy Maintenance

Same-side ground-level service points help speed daily checks and fills. Other common-sense 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 operating costs.


Machine-security system with touchpad passcode helps prevent unauthorized operation.

Standard Side-Shift

Standard-equipped side-shift backhoes with vertical stabilizers can be offset up to 542 mm right or left of center, making them ideal for work in crowded urban areas and around obstacles.
