John Deere introduced its 204L and 304L compact wheel loaders.

Evolutions of the 204K and 304K models, the L-Series models are built for tasks that require peak productivity over rough terrain and in small spaces—with the 204L configurable to a height of less than 8 feet, John Deere said.

“We’re packing more productivity and efficiency into the wheel loader with the release of our L-Series models,” said Drew Miller, product marketing manager, compact wheel loaders of John Deere Construction & Forestry. “Perfect for year-round use, these workhorses were designed to take on tough jobs from warmer summer months to snowy winter conditions, while enabling the use of a versatile attachments portfolio when you need it.”

The 62-hp (204L) and 67-hp (304L) models are equipped with Final Tier 4 Yanmar engines and fuel-efficient hydrostatic transmissions to keep noise to a minimum. Automatically activated front and rear differential locks provide increased traction in harsh conditions, according to John Deere.

Additional features include include hydraulically released, self-adjusted park and service breaks, ground-level maintenance points, an improved interior cooling system and easy cooler access. The new models also offer extended service intervals for the engine oil/filter, final drives oil and hydraulic oil.

Owners have the option of selecting an enclosed cab or open station. An optional LED lighting package and ride control are also available.

The L-Series compact wheel loaders are compatible with over 100 John Deere Worksite Pro attachments.
