Productive, compact, and ready for anything.

Need a compact loader to get big results? Step up to the tight turning, heavy lifting 244K Loader. This versatile machine combines outstanding maneuverability, travel speed, breakout force, reach, and stability to tackle tasks other machines can't. Oscillating stereo steering delivers a smooth turning radius that's up to 20-percent tighter than comparable loaders — for faster cycle times and better material retention over rough terrain. Add spacious cabs and extra uptime from sealed electrical connections, more durable axles, and extended service intervals, and you’ve got multipurpose machine that is ready, able, and willing to take on whatever work you've got.


  • EPA Final Tier 4 emission-certified four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine delivers power without compromise.
  • Unique stereo steering makes this compact loader even more productive, for tight turns and extra agility in close quarters.
  • Manual low-speed differential lock delivers the traction needed to go deeper into the pile for bigger bucket loads.
  • Comes standard with return to dig, quick-coupler, and high travel-speed range.
  • Hydraulically driven fan runs only as needed, for efficient cooling, reduced noise, and lower fuel consumption.
  • Oscillating rear axle and elastic articulation at the pivot smooth the ride, for greater material retention and reduced operator fatigue.
