John Deere 250,000 Backhoe

On March 1, the John Deere Construction & Forestry Division marks a production milestone with the completion of its 250,000th backhoe loader at the Dubuque Works factory.

The model 310SK backhoe loader was purchased by Phoenix-based NPL Construction Co., who took delivery of the machine at a special ceremony at the Dubuque Works facility.

The John Deere 310SK backhoe loader, part of the K-Series, is the latest of more than 50 different backhoe models that have been produced at the Dubuque Works factory since 1971.

Powered by a certified Interim Tier 4/ Stage III B John Deere PowerTech engine, the 310SK comes equipped with a five-speed powershift transmission that allows top speeds of 25 mph, with an alternative to upgrade to the smooth and efficient AutoShift option.

The single loader lever with integrated electro-hydraulic auxiliary control provides productivity and physical operator comfort, while standard features such as  JDLink and Service ADVISOR Remote provide piece of mind.
