John Deere

John Deere redesigned its K-Series compact wheel-loader models, introducing the 244L and 324L models. The equipment features the company’s Articulation Plus system for greater stability and more lifting power while turning tighter.

The feature includes an articulated frame plus rear-wheel steer, providing excellent full-turn tip load and stability with a tight turning radius.

Newly optimized linkage provides improved parallel lifting, with only 6 degrees of rollback. The 244L achieves an 8-foot, 3-inch (2,520 mm) full-lift dump height and a full-turn tip load of 8,157 lbs. (3,700 kg), while the 324L with high lift reaches a 10 foot, 3-inch (3,130 mm) height; and standard lift is capable of a full-turn top load of 9,766 lbs. (4,430 mm). Both models are equipped with 73-horsepower (54 kW) Final Tier 4 engines.
