Like all of our compact construction equipment, it’s designed to be a highly adaptable multitasker that can make quick work of tight spaces and tight deadlines alike.

Smaller do-it-all articulated loaders that combine head-turning maneuverability, sure-footed stability, and comfortable capability are the backbone on which our P-Tier Compact Wheel Loaders were built. We know that your workdays are usually long and no two jobs are the same, so we took your equipment wish list and turned it into a dream machine that puts work back on your get-to-do list.

  • Net Power: 71 hp (52 kW) at 2,400 RPM
  • Operating Weight: 12,258 Lbs (5,560 kg)
  • Bucket Capacity: 1.0 – 1.4 Cu Yd. (0.8 – 1.1 Cu M)

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 loads 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.

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.

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.
