The 210L EP and 210L are the newest members of the John Deere L-Series lineup. Joining their backhoe brethren, which were introduced last month, the dependable and durable tractor loaders boast several customer-inspired improvements that are ideal for earthwork, roadwork, land clearing, and landscaping operations.
"These machines aren't just modified backhoes. The 210L EP and 210L are purpose built for tractor loader owners and their unique applications," said Brian Hennings, product marketing manager, backhoes and tractor loaders, John Deere Construction and Forestry. "We're seeing these machines being used more and more outside the West Coast. Their versatility sets them apart on the job site."
The L-Series meets today's emission regulations through a rugged Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV PowerTech Plus diesel engine on the 210L (93 hp) and a certified IT4/Stage III B John Deere PowerTech E engine on the 210L EP (70 hp). Both models boast a four-speed PowerShif transmission that allows smooth no-clutch fingertip shifting and direction changes for fast work cycles.
Depending on intended use, each tractor loader model can be equipped with a canopy or an optional four-season air-conditioned/heated cab. Inside the cab, updates were made to improve comfort and visibility. These include a larger right-hand armrest and increased seat rotation up to 70 degrees (20 left and 50 right) for a better view of the box blade and easier entry and exit from the cab.
The tractor loaders also boast a new fender design and improved lighting scheme for better visibility around the canopy. A premium LED package includes two front spotlights, two rear and two side floodlights.
An easy-view, multi-language monitor displays important operating information. A new "palm-on-top" loader-control grip increases operator comfort and provides exclusive fingertip control of clutch disconnect momentary mechanical-front-wheel drive (MFWD) and other loader functions.
