    Convenient Controls

    Boom, bucket, F-N-R and 3rd-function hydraulic controls are positioned on the same ergonomic low-effort lever for convenient one-hand control.

    Low Profile

    At just up to 8-feet 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-foot 1-inch reach and 8-foot 7-inch dump clearance, our L-Series Compacts are an attractive alternative to skid steers for loading trucks or placing pallets on trailers.


    EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4) diesels meet rigid emission standards and pack plenty of power and torque reserve.

    Simple to Service

    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.
