Rugged FT4/Stage IV John Deere PowerTech™ EWL 4045 engine boosts power, torque, and reliability compared to previous models. Simple two-valve cylinder-head, wet-sleeve design with replaceable cylinder liners provides uniform cooling and aids in reducing oil breakdown and ring wear.

PowerShift™ Transmission

Standard John Deere PowerShift™ transmission provides on-the-go gear changes. AutoShift that automatically shifts the transmission to the appropriate gear based on engine rpm and ground speed is standard.

Standard Sideshift

New powered sideshift option for the 315SL enables smooth side-by-side shifts in under six seconds, for more precise backhoe repositioning. Its design includes a series of two hydraulic cylinders used to smoothly shift the backhoe, eliminating the need for a chain-drive or pulley system. It’s easily unlocked and controlled via the combination in-cab switch on the main control panel.
Powered sideshift option allows operators to take full advantage of the 315SL’s narrow footprint with vertical stabilizers. This is particularly valuable in applications such as street repair; underground utility work in congested urban areas; constructing square trench boxes; and digging next to buildings, walls, or other structures.

Mechanical-Front-Wheel Drive

Standard limited-slip mechanical-front-wheel drive (MFWD) delivers surefooted traction in any ground condition. Engage momentary MFWD “on the fly” with the touch of a button on the loader control.

Cab and Controls

L-Series pilot towers optimize legroom and space for transitioning between loader and backhoe operation. Palm-on-top loader-control grip is comfortable and easy to use. Redesigned loader-lever linkage reduces resistance and improves its throw and feel, decreasing lever travel by up to 15 percent.

Easy Maintenance

Same-side ground-level service points speed daily checks and fills. Other commonsense features such as quick-change filters, extended service intervals, simple-to-read sight gauges, and easy-access grease zerks help increase uptime and lower daily operating costs.


Machine-security system with touchpad passcode safeguards against unauthorized operation.
