John Deere 324L high lift compact wheel loader

The latest versions of John Deere’s compact wheel loaders are defined by speed, maneuverability and a redesigned cab.

With a top speed of 23 miles per hour, these new loaders are 21 percent faster than the 244K and 324K that precede them. The loaders also feature Deere’s Articulation Plus steering system which combines an articulating frame and rear-wheel steer for high maneuverability in confined spaces.
