John Deere says its newest additions to the E-Series line of skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders feature design and performance enhancements based on customer feedback.
Two skid steers (318E, 320E) and two compact track loaders (319E, 323E) feature upgraded boom performance, auxiliary lines that are integrated through the boom for improved visibility and added protection, and cab improvements aimed at improving operator and machine productivity, uptime and lower daily operating costs.
All models are powered by Yanmar Final Tier 4 diesel engines. The engines in all E-Series models feature cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) with an exhaust filter consisting of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DCF).
All major control patterns are offered on these models to meet customers’ specific needs. This includes traditional hand and foot controls; hand-only controls; or low-effort, electro-hydraulic (EH) joystick controls in both the ISO and “H” patterns. The E-Series features an exclusive option that allows the operator to switch between all three industry control patterns—so contractors can choose the control pattern they’re most comfortable using.
