John Deere Launches Three New Compact Wheel Loader Models
John Deere, Moline, Illinois, is building upon its line-up of compact equipment by expanding its performance tiering strategy with three new models of compact wheel loaders. The new G-tier models include the new 184 G-tier, and the 204 G-tier and 304 G-tier machines. The 184, 204 and 304 G-tier compact wheel loaders are designed to provide solutions for customers in applications such as landscaping, agriculture, snow removal, site development, and rental.
The models come standard with limited slip differential, which automatically engages if one wheel loses traction. The optional ride-control reduces spillage from the bucket when traveling over rough terrain, reducing job site clean-up, and improving ride quality for the operator and can also be set to engage and disengage at certain speeds.
Featured on all G-tier models, the forward-thinking cab design is offered in both a canopy or enclosed cab configuration. Built with operator visibility in mind, the redesigned enclosed cab features a frameless, fully glass door, floor-to-ceiling front windshield and remounted machine display, providing a clear line of sight to machine surroundings. The right-side full glass window also swings out 180 degrees. Additional features include an adjustable steering column, slip-resistant steps, and an optional LED lighting package. The cab includes amenities such as improved air conditioning systems and ergonomic low-effort controls (when compared to John Deere L Series compact wheel loaders) to keep operators comfortable during a long shift.
The largest of the three new models, the 304 G-tier, has a travel speed of 18.6 MPH (30 km/h). Its design offers improved operator visibility (when compared to John Deere L Series compact wheel loaders) and overall machine stability with the increased machine size, which is now measured at 8 feet, 8 inches in height, with cab and 6 feet, 5 inches wide. The John Deere 184, 204 and 304 G-tier compact wheel loaders are now available for purchase in the United States and Canada
