Calling the new loader a “shining example of customer input in action,” John Deere has introduced the latest machine in its mid-frame E-Series skid-steer and compact track loader lineup.
The 324E skid steer is powered by a 74-horsepower engine and, according to Deere, packs all of the performance of its larger-framed siblings into a more agile design.

The new loader boasts upgraded controls, better boom performance, boom-integrated auxiliary lines and an improved cab.
Deere offers ISO, H-pattern and foot/joystick electrohydraulic (EH) controls on the 324E. An available option on the machine gives the operator the ability to switch between all three control patterns with the push of a button.
The machine’s vertical-lift boom offers 10 feet, 6 inches of reach, while integrated auxiliary lines, curved front glass, a large top window and low side windows improve the operator’s sight lines to the surrounding jobsite.
The 324E is compatible with more than 100 Deere Worksite Pro attachments.
