John Deere introduced its 244K and 324K compact wheel loaders, which are equipped with Final Tier 4 diesel engines with two-speed transmissions.

The wheel loaders feature oscillating stereo steering, which delivers a smooth turning radius that is up to 20 percent tighter than comparable loaders, said the company. They also have higher tipping load capacities than John Deere’s J-Series wheel loaders.

In addition, operators have the ability to activate the machines’ front differential lock through a pushbutton the joystick. An optional manual low-speed differential lock provides the traction needed to dig deeper into piles for greater bucket loads.

The K-Series compact wheel loaders feature a redesigned cab, including tilt steering, a multi-adjustable suspension seat, electronic monitor and convex mirrors. The machines also offer one-hand control with the boom, bucket, and forward-neutral-reverse switches all on the same lever.
