  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
  • Key Features
    • 3.3-L naturally aspirated diesel meets IT4 emission regulations without after-treatment devices.
    • 2.47-m (8 ft.) overall height and 1.90-m (6 ft. 3 in.) width enable the loader to navigate low and narrow entryways.
    • Standard canopy or optional air-conditioned/heated cab lets you choose the right operator environment for the job.
    • Hydrostatic transmission’s low and high ranges provide travel speeds to 20 km/h (12 mph).
    • Oscillating front loader frame reduces operator station tilt for a more stable and ride.
    • Limited-slip front and rear axles help improve traction when a tire starts to spin.
    • Standard skid-style quick coupler and auxiliary hydraulics accommodate numerous attachments.
    • Field-proven ultra-reliable diesels meet EPA Interim Tier 4 (IT4)/EU Stage IIIA regulations without aftertreatment devices.
    • Cooler cores are easily accessible for quick clean-out. Engine-mounted belt-driven cooling fan delivers efficient, reliable performance.
    • Just 2.47-m (8 ft.) tall, our K-Series Compacts deliver lower clearance than many wheel loaders in their class, and are a full foot lower than our 244J.
    • Low center of gravity and exceptional balance yield impressive stability and full- turn tipping-load capacities. Precise parallel control over the entire lift range helps ease material handling.
    • Articulated steering delivers a tight turn radius for excellent close-quarters maneuverability and fast work cycles.
    • Limited-slip differential lock automatically delivers the power to the tire with the best traction for extra bucket-filling effort.
    • Tapered lift arms and single boom and bucket cylinders enhance visibility without sacrificing breakout force.
    • Fingertip control of the coupler, travel speed, park brake, lights, and other machine functions are close and convenient.
    • Boom and bucket, FNR, and differential lock are controlled by the same low-effort joystick for convenient one-hand operation.
    • Optional creeper control allows slow incremental travel speeds while maintaining full hydraulic flow. It’s ideal for hydraulic-driven attachments such as brooms.
    Cab Comfort
    • Air-conditioned low-profile cab provides year-round comfort and foul-weather material handling or snow removal.
    • Expansive curved tinted glass and narrow corner posts enhance visibility.
    • ROPS-certified open-canopy models are perfect for applications requiring the operator to frequently get on and off the machine.
    • Open-canopy models are designed to withstand the elements, with weather-resistant gauges, extended rooftops, nonskid floor mats, and optional vandal proofing.
    • Elastic articulation at the pivot point smoothes the ride for greater load retention and reduced operator fatique.
    Monitor and Electrical System
    • Easy-to-read monitor displays engine, cooling, and hydraulic system status, as well as numerous operational settings.
    • Optional lockable monitor and switch covers provide after-hours security and vandal protection.
    • Ultra-reliable electrical system minimizes the number of wires, mechanical relays, and unsealed connections for maximum durability and uptime.
    • Several Worksite Pro attachments are compatible with our skid steers, compact track loaders, and 244J Loader. So you can maximize utilization and make the most of your investment.
    • The pushbutton-actuated skid-steer-style coupler lets an operator attach and release attachments quickly from the seat. What’s more, the coupler doesn’t require special adapters that reduce bucket breakout or rollback.
    • Pickup brooms let you sweep up dust and debris, and haul it away or deposit it in a dumpster.
    • Blades, buckets, and pushers make these loaders naturals for removing whatever winter drops your way.
    • For moving mulch, shuttling sand, or carving through clay, we’ve got the right bucket for the job. Capacities range from 0.8 to 1.6 m3 (1.0 to 2.1 cu. yd.).
    • Like their green-and-yellow siblings, these loaders are right at home on the farm. Equipped with bale spear, forks, or bucket, these highly maneuverable machines handle a multitude of chores.
    • Scrap grapples let you move a variety of materials, from bales to branches. Two hydraulic-actuated dual-action tongs provide firm material retention.
    • Lockable easy-open tilting hoods provide convenient, ground-level access to daily checkpoints. Transverse-mounted engine provides convenient access to dipsticks and filler necks.
    • Easy-access vertical filters and environmental drains make fluid changes quick and clean.
    • Convenient maintenance and lube chart helps ensure that nothing gets overlooked.
    • Ground-level fuel fill and see-through coolant reservoir are close and convenient to help simplify daily servicing.
