  • Low Profile

    At just 8-ft. tall, our small wheel loaders deliver lower clearance than many wheel loaders in their class.

  • 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.

  • Attachment-Ready

    Standard skid-steer-style quick-coupler and auxiliary hydraulics, plus numerous compatible John Deere wheel loader attachments, further add to the 204L compact front end loader's do-it-all flexibility.

  • Simple to Service

    Easy-access vertical filters and environmental drains make fluid changes quick and clean.

  • Power

    EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IIIB diesels meet rigid emission standards and pack plenty of power and torque reserve.
