316GR Skid Steer Features

Best in class comfort, safety, and ease of operation

With the 316GR Skid Steer, compact doesn’t mean cramped. Larger entryways with swing-out doors make it easier to get in, get comfortable, and get on with it. A rear window and removable top window come standard, with optional side windows (sliding, locking, removable). A wide and comfortable seat belt and pull-down adjustable lap bar, triple-interlock operator presence control system, ROPS/FOPS structure, and in-cab boom lockout (to secure loader before exiting seat) will provide essential operator safety controls.

Deluxe instrumentation EMU comes standard, with operator selectable monitoring of key diagnostics, status, and configuration. An optional sealed-switch module provides access to keyless start and anti-theft settings, plus fingertip activation of numerous machine functions including optional ride control and hydraulic self-leveling.

Safely operating under low light and inclement weather conditions is made possible with front and rear work lights, with the option to upgrade to a LED lighting package for additional cab-integrated side lights.

Limitless versatility with attachments for every job

Add any of the 100+ attachments available for this skid steer and watch your productivity soar – increased auxiliary hydraulic flow and power enable the 316GR to make the most of an even broader range of attachments.

Generous standard auxiliary hydraulics let you effortlessly run powered attachments such as planetary augers, hydraulic hammers, and trenchers. Imagine the versatility of this powerful, compact machine for land clearing, landscaping, farm work, residential construction, and municipal works. For loading and earthmoving, choose from rock, multipurpose, construction, utility, tooth, grading-heel, and rollout buckets in varying widths and capacities.

Universal Quik-Tatch™ enables you to go from bucket, to trencher, to whatever, in just seconds, to accomplish more with one machine. Weighing in at 2,806 kg (base machine), and with convenient front and rear tie-downs, the 316GR is easy to trailer to site.

Productivity and performance in your reach

The John Deere 316GR Interim Tier 4/EU Stage IIIA turbocharged diesel meets rigid emission standards, runs smooth, and packs plenty of power and torque. With a high-flow hydraulics option delivering 63 L/min at 3,450 psi, and John Deere heat-treated, chrome-plated polished cylinder rods made from hardened steel, achieve a rated operating capacity of 795 kg (tipping load 1,589 kg), and boom breakout force of 2,157 kg (with foundry bucket).

Radial-lift boom offers more lift height and reach at the top of the lift path, for more stability and truck-loading ability. A height to hinge pin up to 2.92 m enables these machines to easily load tandem-axle dump trucks, feed mixers, and fill hoppers. You’ll also appreciate the additional reach to truck-bed height when handling pallets of heavy materials.

Mechanical foot controls can be upgraded to electrohydraulic (EH) ISO-pattern joystick controls or ISO-H switchable joystick controls and EH joystick performance package. The EH joystick performance package features switchable accelerator/decelerator, selectable propel speeds, creep control, boom-and bucket-speed settings, and attachment-control harness.

Optional on the 318G and 316GR, two-speed drivetrain delivers travel speeds up to 16.3 km/h, for rapid work cycles.

Built tough for uptime and ease of maintenance

The G-Series is loaded with time and money-saving features designed to deliver efficient operation and maximum uptime. Auxiliary hydraulic lines and wiring are routed through the boom where they’re protected from damage. Oil-bathed final-drive chains withstand the daily grind and almost never need adjustment. The 316GR’s Yanmar 4-cylinder turbocharged fluid-efficient diesel with auto-idle standard and a generous 71 L fuel tank enables extended operation cycles.

Swing open the rear door and tilt up the hood for convenient ground level reach to dipsticks, fuel and fluid-filler necks, and filters. For easy drivetrain reach, the operator’s station also swings up and out of the way in less than two minutes.

Owners of a John Deere fleet will appreciate the time and money-saving convenience of shared components between John Deere skid steers, track loaders, and compact excavators.
