John Deere introduces the 313 and 315 models of skid-steer loaders that feature rated operating capacities of 1,300 and 1,500 pounds. The units feature 45-hp engines that are certified to EPA Interim Tier-4 emissions levels, as well as electronic controls for idle stability, cold-start performance and transient response. A key feature of the 313 and 315 is the radial lift boom. The bucket rests close to the machine when in the down position and swings forward for improved reach in the 4- to 5-foot range. Cushioned bucket and lift cylinders provide smooth deceleration at the end of the boom lower position, also cushioning the bucket when curling and dumping a load.
