  • Convenient Controls
    Boom, bucket, F-N-R and now 3rd-function hydraulic controls are positioned on the same ergonomic low-effort lever for convenient one-hand control.
  • Multitasking
    With a top speed of 12 mph, and up to 3-ft. 1-in. reach and 8-ft. 7-in. dump clearance, our L-Series Compacts are great for loading trucks or placing pallets on trailers.
  • Low Profile
    At just 8-ft. tall, our L-Series Compacts deliver lower clearance than many wheel loaders in their class.
  • Power
    EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IIIB diesels meet rigid emission standards and pack plenty of power and torque reserve.
  • Simple to Service
    Easy-access vertical filters and environmental drains make fluid changes quick and clean.
