Compact Wheel Loaders

Deere Introduces the 244L and 324L Compact Wheel Loaders

Offering operators increased productivity and significantly faster travel speeds, John Deere redesigned its K-Series compact wheel loader models with the introduction of the 244L and 324L compact wheel loaders. Ideal for landscape/snow removal, ag material handling and construction tasks, the new models round out the full line of L-Series compact wheel loaders available from John Deere.

The industry-exclusive Articulation Plus steering system on the 244L and 324L provides operators an unparalleled combination of lift capacity and maneuverability. This feature includes an articulated frame plus rear-wheel steer, providing excellent full-turn tip load and stability with a tight turning radius. View the brochure »

The lowdown on high productivity.

When your work requires a compact loader to get the task done, choose from our fleet. Serious breakout force and solid full-turn tipping load capacities make these small-but-mighty machines plenty productive. Their articulated steering delivers a tight turn radius for close quarters, and when the task includes rough terrain, the oscillating front loader frame reduces cab tilt for a comfortable ride.
