Hi to all, I'm considering buying a late model JD 310 SJ TC backhoe loader, It the "Total Control" with the joy stick controls on the arm rests, and they also control the loader bucket! It looks like these are all "Electronic" type controls! Anyone have any info on these as far as reliability is concerned?? I hate to call a dealer and ask them cause they'd say they are the "Cats Meow"...Any thoughts will be accepted...Thanks Jim in N.M.

Been working on construction equipment for a long time and while I can't speak specifically to that one machine, I will say this. Electronics and heavy equipment are two things that do not mix well, in my experience and opinion....

While I will admit that when new and everything is working perfectly these thpes of systems can be the 'cat's meow', all it takes is one minor thing to go wrong for everything to come to a screeching halt. When that happens your going to be coughing up a wad of cash bigger than a cat's hairball, to the nearest dealership (((because very few to no independnts will have the latest computer software to troubleshoot it))) to get it diagnosed. Once the diagnosis is out of the way, buying the electronic components are like getting things from Victoria's Secret, EXPENSIVE....but you don't get nearly as much pleasure from them seeing them put on.....
