John Deere has introduced the 326 P-Tier telescopic compact wheel loader, offering 16-plus feet of reach from its telescopic lift arm while still being compact enough to work in tight spaces.

Lift, Load and Stack with Over 16 feet of Reach

Extending and retracting the telescoping arm is performed with the mini-joystick located on the main control lever, meaning operators don't have to remove their hands from the main controls to activate the arm.

To help guard against overloading the arm, the Load Torque Indicator System gives visual and audible alarms if stability limits are exceeded during lifting, lowering or extension. If the stability limit is reached, movement of the lift arm is only possible if the movement reduces the load. In addition, a separate indicator warns of potential overload of the tilt cylinder.

The 326 P-Tier telescopic compact wheel loader also features a brisk 23-mph top speed to help move quickly between jobs.  -  Photo: John Deere

A Cab Built for the Business of Movement

Inside the cab, operators will find a 9-inch touchscreen display puts key information within easy view; the configurable display shows key data such as warnings, status and machine-positioning information. Intuitive user-friendly menus allow operators to tailor the display and machine functionality to the task at hand.

Electro-hydraulic controls, customizable from the touchscreen display, offer Auto Return-to-Dig, and Auto Lift and Lower functions, and help to reduce cycle times while enabling consistent, repeatable movements. All the while, optional boom-mounted lights and standard overhead window allow a clear view to the end of the telescoping arm.

The 326 P-Tier telescopic compact wheel loader also features a brisk 23-mph top speed to help move quickly between jobs. And for tight turning, the industry-exclusive Articulation PlusTM steering system offers a full 30 degrees of articulation plus 10 additional degrees of rear-wheel steering.
