If you’ve got maximum productivity in mind, the 544K Loader should be at the top of your list. But it’s not just the big torque reserves that makes it such an impressive performer. Single-level joystick or two-lever fingertip controls provide smooth, near-effortless control. Excavator-style hydraulics sense the load and deliver the flow needed for smooth combined functions and fast work cycles. 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.
