Time flies when you're getting things done. And what operator wouldn't be more productive in the high-back air-ride seat of a 524K Loader? Up-front, an enhanced multifunction monitor displays operating, diagnostic, and maintenance info on a color LCD screen with easy-on-the-eyes clarity. The spacious and quiet cab boasts plenty of legroom and fatigue-beating ergonomics, including convenience features such as seat-mounted loader controls. The 524K's EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV PowerTech™ diesel engine enables it to work, everywhere there's work, even in nonattainment areas. You won't find a smoother shifting loader, either. The PowerShift™ torque-converter transmission employs SmartShift™ technology to continuously evaluate speed and load conditions, and adjusts clutch-pack engagement to suit.


  • Fluid-efficient EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV diesel engine delivers impressive torque to help maintain good boom and bucket speed in and out of the pile for heaped loads, even in wet or hard-packed material.
  • Standard four-speed transmission adapts to changes in speed and load, for smooth shifting in all gears. Improves productivity and increases fuel efficiency, especially during stockpiling and ramp climbing.
  • Optional axle cooling and filtration for increased durability in demanding conditions.
  • Remote-start battery terminals improve remote starting ease.
  • Optional right-side steps and platform provide easy access to the right side of the machine.
