John Deere Expands Lineup of P-Tier Compact Wheel Loader Models

  • John Deere moves the 244L, 324L and 344L Compact Wheel Loader models to P-Tier machines as an extension of its Performance Tiering Strategy.
  • The 244, 324 and 344 P-Tier Compact Wheel Loader models feature standard ride control capabilities and offer upgrade options, including auto-reversing fans and attachment assist controls.
  • P-Tier compact wheel loaders will continue to offer the industry-exclusive Articulation Plus™ feature.

MOLINE, Ill. — Addressing the needs of customers looking for compact solutions that provide enhanced maneuverability, stability and power, John Deere expands its Performance Tiering offerings with the 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.

"As we continue to make the shift from past generation machines to our current generation of Performance Tiering models, we aim to keep the same features our customers know and trust on the L-Series models, with the added benefits of new productivity enhancements only available on the P-Tier machines," said Luke Gribble, solutions marketing manager, John Deere.

Previously offered as an optional upgrade on L-Series models, ride control is now standard on all P-Tier compact wheel loaders. Ideal for customers moving materials over long distances, or on hard surfaces, ride control cushions boom movements during transport, acting like a shock absorber to help minimize material spillage. Increasing operator comfort and productivity, this feature is applied with a flip of a switch in the cab and can be set to automatically engage and disengage at a predetermined speed.
