Performance meets convenience.

Convenience is key when it comes to productivity. With an 8,091 lb. full-turn tipping load, 3 ft. 1-in. reach, and 11 ft.-1 in. height to hinge pin, the 304K Compact Loader is an efficient alternative to skid steers for loading trucks or placing pallets. The standard-equipped canopy provides quick entrance/exit to their weatherproof interior, and a low profile enables easy access to close quarters.

Attachments –

• Several Worksite Pro attachments are compatible with our skid steers, compact track loaders, and 244J Loader. So you can maximize utilization and make the most of your investment.
• The pushbutton-actuated skid-steer-style coupler lets an operator attach and release attachments quickly from the seat. What's more, the coupler doesn't require special adapters that reduce bucket breakout or rollback.
• Pickup brooms let you sweep up dust and debris, and haul it away or deposit it in a dumpster.
• Blades, buckets, and pushers make these loaders naturals for removing whatever winter drops your way.
• For moving mulch, shuttling sand, or carving through clay, we've got the right bucket for the job. Capacities range from 0.8 to 1.6 m3 (1.0 to 2.1 cu. yd.).
• Like their green-and-yellow siblings, these loaders are right at home on the farm. Equipped with bale spear, forks, or bucket, these highly maneuverable machines handle a multitude of chores.
• Scrap grapples let you move a variety of materials, from bales to branches. Two hydraulic-actuated dual-action tongs provide firm material retention.

Cab Comfort –

• Air-conditioned low-profile cab provides year-round comfort and foul-weather material handling or snow removal.
• Expansive curved tinted glass and narrow corner posts enhance visibility.
• ROPS-certified open-canopy models are perfect for applications requiring the operator to frequently get on and off the machine.
• Open-canopy models are designed to withstand the elements, with weather-resistant gauges, extended rooftops, nonskid floor mats, and optional vandal proofing.
• Elastic articulation at the pivot point smooths the ride for greater load retention and reduced operator fatique.

Controls –

• Fingertip control of the coupler, travel speed, park brake, lights, and other machine functions are close and convenient.
• Boom and bucket, FNR, and differential lock are controlled by the same low-effort joystick for convenient one-hand operation.

Engine –

• Field-proven ultra-reliable diesels meet EPA Interim Tier 4 (IT4)/EU Stage IIIA regulations without aftertreatment devices.
• Cooler cores are easily accessible for quick clean-out. Engine-mounted belt-driven cooling fan delivers efficient, reliable performance.

Monitor and Electrical System –

• Easy-to-read monitor displays engine, cooling, and hydraulic system status, as well as numerous operational settings.
• Ultra-reliable electrical system minimizes the number of wires, mechanical relays, and unsealed connections for maximum durability and uptime.

Productivity –

• Just 2.47-m (8 ft.) tall, our K-Series Compacts deliver lower clearance than many wheel loaders in their class, and are a full foot lower than our 244J.
• Low center of gravity and exceptional balance yield impressive stability and full- turn tipping-load capacities. Precise parallel control over the entire lift range helps ease material handling.
• Articulated steering delivers a tight turn radius for excellent close-quarters maneuverability and fast work cycles.
• Limited-slip differential lock automatically delivers the power to the tire with the best traction for extra bucket-filling effort.
• Tapered lift arms and single boom and bucket cylinders enhance visibility without sacrificing breakout force.

Serviceability / Uptime –

• Lockable easy-open tilting hoods provide convenient, ground-level access to daily checkpoints. Transverse-mounted engine provides convenient access to dipsticks and filler necks.
• Easy-access vertical filters and environmental drains make fluid changes quick and clean.
• Convenient maintenance and lube chart helps ensure that nothing gets overlooked.
• Ground-level fuel fill and see-through coolant reservoir are close and convenient to help simplify daily servicing.
