Meet your challenges head-on with 300 Series skid steer loaders from New Holland. The L316 is designed to make your workday more productive and comfortable with noteworthy dump height and reach, swift cycle times, and time-saving travel speeds. 


New Holland Tier 4 Final engines use less fuel while still delivering powerful 60 HP (45 kW) performance to the L316. The reliable hydraulic system delivers fast cycle times, raising in just 3.2 seconds and lowering in only two seconds. In-line hydraulic pumps produce less noise and provide extra-smooth operation. Add the optional Ride Control and Self Level to make those long work days easier and more productive.


The dual-range transmission on the L316 provides standard low-range travel speeds of nearly 8 mph (12.7 kph) and 139 lbs/ft (188 Nm) @1800 rpm of peak torque power to save time on and between job sites. New Holland’s long 37-inch (941 mm) wheelbase gives you stability and smooth riding comfort. Newly available creep mode on EH models provides greater control for slow-speed operations like trenching.


The L316's radial lift linkage provides a maximum 84.8 inches (2154 mm) of dump height and a maximum 18.5 inches (469 mm) in dump height reach, allowing you to precisely place loads in the center of high-sided truck boxes or hoppers.


Long service intervals and easy access to maintenance points reduce downtime and lost revenue. All daily service points are grouped together and the rear door and hood make it easy to access without tools. The entire cab and boom assembly tilts forward for unrivaled entry to components and easy cab cleanout.
