Deere goes one smaller with CT315

The loader has a 320mm-wide track and a narrow overall machine width of just over 1.5m.”We’ve designed the new CT315 to be super compact,” said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager for skid steers and compact track loaders, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “It’s made for work in tight places, and the true radial lift system uses a linkage that keeps the lift arms close to the machine when the bucket is near the ground, making it great for digging, prying and overall compactness,” Zupancic said.John Deere said that while the CT315 is compact, it is a production machine, with a powerful 680kg rated operating capacity. The company said the machine’s cushioned bucket and lift cylinders provide smooth deceleration at the end of the boom-lower position and also cushion the bucket when curling and dumping a load.”The cushioning helps operators keep more material in the bucket and reduces noise,” Zupancic said. “It also makes cycles easier, adding up to less fatigue at the end of a shift.”The machine’s powerplant is a 2.4-litre Deere PowerTech 4024T 4-cylinder engine. The CT315 also takes a wide variety of John Deere Worksite Pro attachments, further enhancing jobsite productivity. John Deere says the loader requires oil changes after 500 hours and utilises an attachment design that never needs greasing.
