DEERE 344LCOMPACT WHEEL LOADERS
Your business is unique just like our L-Series Compact Loaders. With our industry-exclusive Articulation Plus steering system and the High-Lift configuration available on the 324L and 344L, these highly adaptable multipurpose machines combine head-turning maneuverability, sure-footed stability, and the speed you need to quickly get things done.
THINK BIG, RUN SMALL. YOUR BEST CHOICE FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF WORK
Whether you work in tight places or simply need a smaller machine to get big results our 244L, 324L, and 344L Loaders have what it takes. Check out their unique features and L-Series enhancements.
Loader arm and coupler design improves the lifting path to near parallel for better load-carrying capability than previous models. This keeps the load much more level from ground to truck-bed height. Removing the manual adjustments required for previous models allows the operator to stay focused on the task at hand.
LIFT, REACH, REPEAT
With exceptional lift and height to hinge pin, the optional High-Lift configuration offered on the 324L and 344L makes both especially adept at repetitive dumping and stacking applications.
With a standard top speed of up to 25 mph on the 344L and 23 mph on the 324L and 244L, these compact loaders can make some pretty quick moves on and between jobsites.
Equip your loader with an ISO coupler and go from bucket to forks, for maximum lift capacity, quickly and easily. Opt for the John Deere quick-coupler available on the 244L and 324L to utilize a wide array of skid-steer-compatible attachments. High-flow electrohydraulic-controlled auxiliary hydraulics are also available.
EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4) emission-certified four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines John Deere PowerTech on the 344L, Yanmar on the 324L and 244L deliver power without compromise.
Optional LED front and rear work lights brilliantly show the way for early morning or after-daylight tasks. In-cab lighting has been designed with the operator in mind, activating when the door is opened to help illuminate machine entrances and exits.
TOUGH GOING IN TIGHT SPACES? TURN THINGS AROUND.
Caught between a rock and a hard place or two concrete walls? A 244L, 324L, or 344L Loader can help you turn it around. The Articulation Plus steering system allows tight turns with large loads, with a tighter turning radius than leading competitive articulation loaders.
READY, WILLING, AND ABLE
Industry-exclusive Articulation Plus steering system combines 30 deg. of articulation plus an additional 10 deg. of rear-wheel steer. By reducing the articulation angle, this design allows tighter turns that are more stable.
Rimpull control manages power to the wheels, allowing the operator to select the optimal setting to reduce tire and driveline wear.
REACH YOUR GOALS
With its exceptional reach, the 344L easily dumps to the center of tandem-axle trucks, for quick loading cycles. For taller tasks requiring extra height and reach, order your 324L or 344L with the High-Lift option thats especially adept at loading feed mixers or stacking lighter materials.
The 344L delivers a greater full-turn tipping load, a tighter turning radius, and more stability than comparable competitive articulation loaders.
Manual low-speed 100-percent differential lock delivers the ground-gripping tractive effort necessary to dive deep into the pile and help heap the bucket.
WE TAKE YOUR VIEWS SERIOUSLY - INCLUDING THE ONES FROM THIS SPACIOUS CAB.
Customer insight was invaluable to the development of the L-Series Loaders. In fact, it inspired enhanced visibility compared to previous models, intuitive controls, and automated functions. Your operators will like what they see.
All-around visibility is virtually unobstructed. Expansive floor-to-ceiling tinted glass provides a commanding view of the work at hand as well as the surrounding obstacles and activity.
CONVENIENT, ONE-HAND CONTROL
Boom and bucket, F-N-R, and differential lock are controlled by the same low-effort joystick. Mini-joystick standard on the 244L and 324L, optional on the 344L controls auxiliary hydraulic functions including high flow.
Adjustable-height monitor lets an operator keep a close watch on vital machine functions such as engine rpm, oil pressure, temperature, and more. The system issues both visual and audible warnings.
Sculpted adjustable seat provides daylong support. For even more comfort, a fully adjustable heated high-back air-ride version is available.
Load-sensing AutoShift on all three models eliminates productivity-interrupting manual shifts between gear ranges and provides smooth direction changes, too.
LOCK AND LOAD
Optional throttle lock and creep control let you set a slow ground speed while maintaining full engine power to an attachment. Its perfect for work with attachments such as snow blowers, cold planers, or even material/manure scrapers.
TIGHTER TURNING RADIUS AND INCREASED STABILITY WITH ARTICULATION PLUS STEERING
L-series compact wheel loaders feature industry exclusive Articulation Plus that adds rear wheel steer to increase full turn tipping load and overall maneuverability
This steering system combines 30 degrees of articulation with an additional 10degrees of rear-wheel steering.
Articulation Plus enables a significantly higher full turn tipping load than machines without this feature because the machine does not need to articulate as much to turn as other loaders
This feature results in a significantly tighter turning radius than comparatively sized loaders without Articulation Plus
INCREASE YOUR MACHINES VERSATILITY WITH JOHN DEERES WIDE ARRAY OF ATTACHMENT OFFERINGS
With over 100 attachments offered in the John Deere attachment portfolio you can make the most out of your compact wheel loader by equipping it with many popular attachments.
Skid Steer Quik-Tatch coupler and ISO Style Couplers allow increased optionality to utilize a range of attachments and the common interface means previous series attachments will be able to be used on these new series of machines as well.
The Attachment Assist Package makes it easier for operators to get the most out of attachments by combining throttle lock and creep control to maintain full power at a set ground speed.
Optional three function hydraulics includes joystick with integrated FNR switch and 3rd function mini-joystick control for ease of operation.
Standard auxiliary hydraulics and optional High Flow hydraulics allows the use of attachments like snow blowers or augers. By simply pressing a switch in the cab, operators can easily connect and disconnect attachments and enable them to have full function flow without having to manually press buttons throughout the day
Optimized forks for compact wheel loaders offer improved visibility, increased capacity, and better durability. Designed specifically for compact loaders, they enable operators to load the far side of a trailer with ease
Optional 14 pin connector enables additional attachments to be compatible with the machines
ENJOY ALL DAY COMFORT WITH THE SPACIOUS AND ERGONOMICALLY FRIENDLY CAB
The operator focused designs found within John Deere Compact Wheel loaders ensure operators are comfortable and productive all day.
L-series wheel loaders feature an overall larger cab that is both wider and longer compared to previous series
To help keep operators more comfortable during a long shift, an improved air conditioning system with additional adjustable louvers has been included. The optimized duct work and additional operator louvers provide increased airflow and allow the operator to direct airflow where it is needed.
Ergonomic, low effort controls all on the right side, allow operators to work comfortably and more efficient.
Machine display is redesigned and mounted to the cab A-frame and is height adjustable
Ample storage within the cab allows operators to keep personal items close and secure
Adjustable steering column in enclosed cab units allows operators to easily move the steering wheel to a desired position to help increase productivity and allow easy ingress and egress.
Optional premium high-back, air suspension heated seat provides top of the line comfort for operators in off road conditions and colder climates
The left pedal acts as a brake and inching pedal. If the operator pushes all the way down, the machine comes to a complete stop. If the operator presses the pedal without going all the way down, the machine will proportionally move slower and continue at that speed
PRODUCTIVITY ENHANCEMENTS THAT CAN BENEFIT YOU REGARDLESS OF THE MACHINES APPLICATION
The 344L comes with features that result in higher productivity in applications like V-pattern truck loading, bale handling, and landscaping.
The John Deere PowerTech 4045T engine features a high-pressure common rail fuel system with electronic injectors, 4-valve cylinder head, a wastegate turbocharger, and is charge air cooled. The 344L meets Final Tier 4 emissions regulations through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), diesel particulate filter, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. The SCR system utilizes diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
Based off of customer and dealer feedback, the 344L now has an increased maximum travel speed of 40 km/h (25 mph)
Automatic shift logic has been internally developed specifically for this machine to allow the operator to focus on their work instead of shifting gears. This allows the machine to seamlessly transition from loading to transport. The system senses the machine speed and load and will adjust the hydrostatic pumps, motors, and gearbox automatically without operator input to best match the conditions.
Manual low-speed 100-percent differential lock delivers the ground gripping tractive effort necessary to dive deep into the pile and help heap the bucket.
Optional ride control reduces material spillage from the bucket when traveling over rough and uneven terrain by cushioning the boom. This will help in getting the material being moved to where it is intended to go, and will reduce site cleanup that may result from spilled material.
To help keep material in the bucket, and to make an operator more comfortable, there are two points of oscillation on the 344L when traveling over rough ground. The articulation joint has 10 degrees of oscillation and the rear axle also has 10 degrees of oscillation. Combined, both help to significantly improve machine stability over rough and uneven terrain.
EASE OF SERVICEABILITY ALLOWS YOU TO SPEND MORE TIME COMPLETING THE TASKS AT HAND
Enhanced serviceability features and ease of access to daily and preventative maintenance points ensures that these tasks do not significantly cut into working hours
EXCELLENT VISIBILITY FOR INCREASED SITUATIONAL AND JOBSITE AWARENESS
