  • Enjoy the Ride
    • Standard ride control cushions the boom during travel over rough and uneven terrain, reducing material spillage from the bucket and minimizing site cleanup.
  • Control and Command
    • Low-effort joystick controls boom and bucket, forward-neutral-reverse (F-N-R), and differential lock. Standard mini-joystick controls auxiliary hydraulic functions including optional high flow. Adjustable-height monitor lets operators keep close watch on vital machine functions.
  • Turn Things Around
    • Industry-exclusive Articulation Plus™ steering system combines 30 degrees of articulation with 10 additional degrees of rear-wheel steer. Reduced articulation angle design delivers tighter turns that are more stable, especially with large loads, than comparatively sized loaders without Articulation Plus.
  • On the Level
    • Loader arm and coupler design improves the lifting path to near parallel — for better load-carrying capability than previous models. This keeps the load more level from ground to truck-bed height and helps the operator focus on the task instead of on making manual adjustments.
  • Fast Getaway
    • With a standard top speed of over 23 mph, the 244 P-Tier can make some pretty quick moves on and between jobsites.
  • Smooth Moves
    • Load-sensing AutoShift powertrain technology eliminates productivity-interrupting manual shifts between gear ranges while providing smooth direction changes.
