The line of P-Tier compact wheel loader models from John Deere, Moline, Ill., is a shift from L-Series to P-Tier for the 244, 324 and 344 compact wheel loader models. The new P-Tier compact wheel loaders will carry over all L-Series features and will introduce new productivity-enhancing qualities, including standard ride control in base models and optional factory-installed features, including an auto-reversing fan option. Additional optional features include attachment assist controls, which include integrated electrical (three-pin) controls for attachments and combined creep control and throttle lock.
The P-Tier compact wheel loaders will continue to offer the Articulation Plus™ feature, which enables rear-wheel steering to increase full-turn tipping load and improve maneuverability, the company says. This steering system combines 30 degrees of standard articulation with an additional 10 degrees of rear-wheel steering.
