The 310SJ is powered by a John Deere PowerTech 4.5L turbocharged diesel engine that produces 93 hp. An easy to operate, standard PowerShift transmission with hydraulic reverser offers smooth, on-the-go clutchless shifting. Operators can simultaneously control the loader and backhoe with the exclusive mini-joystick. Onboard diagnostics include a multi-language digital monitor. The Total Machine Control (TMC) tool carrier configuration with quick coupler boasts an increased loader lift capacity of 7,419 lbs. The backhoe on the TMC version can be run with the seat rotated up to 90° from the rear-facing position for optimal visibility.
