An evolution of the 204K and 304K models, the John Deere 204L and 304L compact wheel loaders are built for tasks that require peak productivity in small spaces and over rough terrain.

The 62 hp (46 kW) 204L and 67 hp (50 kW) 304L models are equipped with Final Tier 4 Yanmar engines and fuel-efficient hydrostatic transmissions to keep noise to a minimum. An optional ride control is now available, which reduces material spillage and makes for a smoother ride over rough and uneven terrain.

Automatically activated front and rear differential locks provide increased traction in harsh conditions. The machine height of the 204L is also configurable to less than 8 feet, ideal for jobs with overhead space constraints.

The L-Series compact wheel loaders are equipped with features to minimize maintenance. Hydraulically released, self-adjusting park and service brakes, ground-level maintenance points, and excellent cooler access provide safer and easier means of machine upkeep.

The new models also offer extended service intervals for engine oil/filter, final drive oil, and hydraulic oil.

Owners have the option of selecting an enclosed cab or open station, providing 360-degree attachment visibility. An improved interior cooling system keeps the operator comfortable in warmer temperatures.

Providing superior versatility, the L-Series compact wheel loaders are compatible with over 100 John Deere Worksite Pro attachments.
