“The 344L High-Lift was designed to provide operators with increased hinge pin height and dump clearance,” says Grant Van Tine, product marketing manager, compact wheel loaders, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “It’s important to provide our customers with increasingly versatile compact construction equipment to enable them to work with the variety of trucks, trailers, wagons, bins or hoppers they may encounter on any job site.”

With a maximum hinge pin height of 13 feet, 2 inches (4.01 meters), the high-lift option offers an additional 12 inches (0.29 meters) of reach compared to the standard 344L. The 344L compact wheel loader comes equipped with the Articulation-Plus steering system, enabling operators to maximize productivity with the ability to move faster and increase lifting capacity with the new high-lift option when moving or placing materials overhead. When equipped with a quick coupler and bucket, full-turn tipping load on the 344L High-Lift is 10,362 pounds (4,700 kilograms), allowing operators to confidently lift heavy masses overhead, while simultaneously leveraging the 344L compact wheel loader’s design, which includes a tighter turning radius, improved stability and additional supported lift capacity.

The 344L compact wheel loader provides stability and maneuverability with 103 horsepower (76 kW) of maximum peak power. When choosing the 344L High-Lift, operators can confidently and comfortably reach to even higher heights on the job site, says John Deere.
