As a new standard feature on the 310SL HL, 410L and 710L, precision mode allows reduced-speed hydraulic functions while operating the backhoe end of the machine all with the push of a button on the Sealed Switch Module (SSM). The mode allows accurate, detailed work in tight areas, around utilities or while craning. John Deere also improved the pilot controller increasing the metering range by 16 percent.

The rear hydraulic coupler was designed with an integrated control that is incorporated into the SSM for reliable operation and clean installation. A spring-type rear coupler offers increased productivity and uptime by only requiring the operator to leave the cab once during the process of changing buckets. The only tool required is the control rod sized to fit in the standard toolbox. A redesigned hydraulic thumb option reduces trench interference and improves contact points against the bucket cutting edge when handling or loading irregular shaped objects, debris, rocks or anything that a bucket alone cannot handle.D with a bucket alone.
