New Backhoe Control System TMC:

"MOLINE, Illinois (March 12, 2008) What is Total Machine Control?

TMC is the way John Deere has chosen to implement Electro-Hydraulics on construction and forestry equipment. It provides for more intuitive controls and enables automation of functions that operators previously had to do manually.

It's an industry-exclusive option for the John Deere 310SJ and 410J backhoe loaders that gives operators best-in-class comfort, faster cycle times and the best automatic features of an excavator and 4WD loader built into one ultra-productive machine.

"It's by far the most innovative control system in backhoes today," said Bob Tyler, John Deere product marketing manager. "This is the system for operators who need production and versatility without sacrificing comfort."

The TMC difference starts in the operator's seat. Armrest-mounted joystick controls turn with the seat and eliminate pilot towers, resulting in enhanced visibility, exceptional comfort and reduced heat in the cab, thanks to the absence of hydraulic oil used in other control systems.

Total Machine Control also means no more foot pedals or extra levers to control the stabilizers, extendable dipperstick and front/rear auxiliary hydraulics all are now controlled within finger tip reach of the joystick."

Dennis; I kinda knew these were coming, from a very anonomys source, word is they also are working on the next generation of these that has no operator in the cab. It can run grade and the whole bit from an operator sitting in pickup with a laptop. I kinda wonder if it would know the difference between a rock and soil??? Not from this person, but I've also heard of a progran to develop a farm tractor that provides all the tractive power to the wheels in the same way as a railroad locomotive works, no gear transmission at all just a generator and wheel motors. those of you who are around in fifty years will likely laugh at the crude equipment we were using in 2008. Frank. ....
