Page 32 of 55 33 John Deere 344L Combining speed, precision and lift capac- ity, the new John Deere 344L compact wheel loader provides peak productivity. The 344L offers a faster travel speed with smooth auto shift technology up to 25 mph, ideal for cus- tomers who have larger jobsites to traverse or do snow removal. The industry-exclusive Ar- ticulation Plus steering system on the 344L allows operators to lift more during turns than leading competitive machines, says John Deere. Its design features an articulated frame plus rear-wheel steer, providing a tighter turn- ing radius, improved stability and additional lift capacity. In addition, the newly designed loader arms and coupler provide better paral- lel lifting of attachments and increased visibil- ity, especially for operators using forks. With a full-turn tip load of 12,650 lbs, customers are able to lift heavier loads and can keep more material in the bucket without adjustments. For more info, visit .
