John Deere.

Powered by a 6-cylinder engine, the 710G's 118-net-horsepower John Deere 6068T diesel provides the power and versatility needed to maximize productivity and is Tier II emissions compliant. A 70-gallon fuel tank allows the 710G to work longer without re-fueling. Best-in-class "mobile" productivity is delivered through a wide variety of tools, including couplers, hammers, buckets, forks, compactors and more. Longer, box-constructed stabilizers provide enhanced stability through a stance that is 18 inches wider, yet transport width has decreased. Stabilizer down force has increased by 74 percent and swing torque has increased by 72 percent, and bucket dig force has increased by 4,000 pounds. A replaceable wear strip on the swing casting eliminates hose wear; replaceable bushings in the swing cylinder casting help maintain tightness; a boom lock eliminates the need for cable; and a rubber backhoe boom stop eliminates "chucking" when driving on the road. Loader arms are stiffer and heavier than the previous model. Both the arm and mainframe are box-constructed of high-strength low-alloy steel and robot welded for durability, and the mainframe is better balanced for enhanced ride when driving on the road or transporting by truck. The high-knee loader design allows the use of larger tires, as well as providing better front tire clearance. The bucket features numerous improvements to boost productivity. Loader bucket dump angle is increased to 45 degrees for better bucket clean-out, and 25 percent more bucket corner prying force. The bucket joints are positioned higher, keeping them out of the dirt.
