The 710L joins the popular L-Series lineup of backhoe loaders and offers a robust 17-foot 3-inch dig depth, the largest in the John Deere portfolio, and it is ideal for loading trucks, placing pipe, digging trenches, breaking up concrete or asphalt and moving materials.
The 710L include a standard John Deere PowerShift transmission that enables operators to travel up to 23 mph between job sites. Utilizing the sealed-switch module operators can get an additional 10 percent craning boost through the Lift Mode feature; when selected, engine rpm is automatically set at 1,400, and the machine maximizes hydraulic pressure for increased craning capability. Standard ride control enables front loader hydraulic cylinders to act as shock absorbers, smoothing travel over rough terrain, helping full loads reach their destination and reducing operator fatigue.
Inside the cab, operators will enjoy features prevalent on L-Series models, including extra legroom and a more comfortable seat, redesigned pilot towers with fingertip electrohydraulic (EH) controls, a multifunction lever on the steering column to control turn signals, wipers and lights, and a state-of-the-art multi-language monitor. Operators can program time-specific functions, such as auto shutdown and auto idle.
Other 710L backhoe creature comforts include an efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, adjustable mechanical or air-suspension seat, a new lighting scheme with an optional light-emitting diode lighting kit to enhance visibility to extend the workday and an elevated canopy to provide better visibility for both the front and rear of the backhoe.
