Backhoe Loaders: John Deere TMC

February 2010 Vol. 65 No. 2

Total Machine Control (TMC) provides more intuitive controls and enables automation of functions that operators previously had to do manually.

An option for the John Deere 310SJ and 410J backhoe loaders, it gives operators best-in-class comfort, faster cycle times and the best automatic features of an excavator and 4WD loader built into one machine. Armrest-mounted joystick controls turn with the seat and eliminate pilot towers, resulting in enhanced visibility, exceptional comfort and reduced heat in the cab, thanks to the absence of hydraulic oil used in other control systems. Fingertip control means no more foot pedals or extra levers to control the stabilizers, extendable dipper stick and front/rear auxiliary hydraulics. 800.503.3373, www.deere.com
