John Deere backhoe loader working on construction site.

Backhoe Loaders


Why run two machines when one will do? Whether you’re loading trucks, busting up blacktop, placing pipe, digging trenches, or moving materials, an L-Series Backhoe is more than up to the task. Building upon our highly productive K-Series Backhoes, the L-Series features additional backhoe lift capability and PCLS hydraulics (on the 310SL, 310SL HL, 410L, and 710L), for superb multifunction performance. The result: our most versatile backhoes ever.
