Two new additions to the John Deere skidsteer family, the 313 and 315, feature the same unified design as the rest of the line and continue the 300 series advantages of stability, visibility and serviceability.
A key feature of the 313 and 315 is the radial lift boom, a design preferred by customers who work in enclosed areas. The bucket rests close to the machine when in the down position and swings forward for great reach in the four to five foot ‘work zone’ range. Cushioned bucket and lift cylinders provide smooth deceleration at the end of the boom lower position, also cushioning the bucket when curling and dumping a load.
The 60:40 weight distribution provides great balance of power and maneuverability, while the 360 degree visibility offers uninterrupted views to the sides, both above and below the lift arms, so the operator can see the tires and ground around the machine with the boom in the rest position. The operator station is designed with the operator in mind. A wide opening makes it easy to enter and exit. Standard features include a high back ergonomic and adjustable seat with armrests, a digital hour meter, glove-friendly rocker switches, cargo storage for a cell phone and other small items, an interior dome lighting, a 12 volt receptacle and a cup holder. The standard monitor includes an anti-theft system and backlit gauges, switches and LED warning lights. For extra comfort, an optional heated cab is available.
Several design features keep costs low by ensuring fast and easy machine service. The oil cooler swings out with the hinged rear door for full, easy inspection or cleaning. Engine oil changes are simplified with extended, 500 hour oil change intervals. Both models are equipped with visual hydraulic fluid level checks, resulting in fast, easy and no-mess daily checks.
