Need a compact loader to get big results? Step up to the tight turning, heavy lifting 244K Loader. This versatile machine combines outstanding maneuverability, travel speed, breakout force, reach, and stability to tackle tasks other machines can't. Oscillating stereo steering delivers a smooth turning radius that's up to 20-percent tighter than comparable loaders — for faster cycle times and better material retention over rough terrain. Add spacious cabs and extra uptime from sealed electrical connections, more durable axles, and extended service intervals, and you’ve got multipurpose machine that is ready, able, and willing to take on whatever work you've got.
