Boom, bucket, F-N-R and now 3rd-function hydraulic controls are positioned on the same ergonomic low-effort lever for convenient one-hand control.
At just 8-ft. tall, our small wheel loaders deliver lower clearance than many wheel loaders in their class.
With a top speed of 12 mph, and up to 3-ft. 1-in. reach and 8-ft. 7-in. dump clearance, our L-Series Compacts are great for loading trucks or placing pallets on trailers.
EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IIIB diesels meet rigid emission standards and pack plenty of power and torque reserve.
Easy-access vertical filters and environmental drains make fluid changes quick and clean.
Standard skid-steer-style quick-coupler and auxiliary hydraulics, plus numerous compatible John Deere wheel loader attachments, further add to the 304L front end loader's do-it-all flexibility.
