The 444L, 644L, and 724L models also have an all-new cab and controls.
Enhancements over previous models include near-parallel lift, a more spacious operator station, ergonomic electrohydraulic (EH) controls, and new bucket and linkage designs. Plus streamlined electrical and hydraulic routing, and a host of other features help maximize uptime, for the performance, reliability, and comfort you need to stay in front of your competition.
Featuring redesigned joysticks and expanded, customizable electrohydraulic (EH) controls, L-Series Loaders allows intuitive operation. Two industry-exclusive multifunction buttons on the bucket lever can be programmed to handle any of up to 10 functions. Production features up front include new bucket and linkage designs that improve load leveling, material retention, and visibility over earlier models. Near-parallel lift combined with better load-leveling capability compared to K-Series models helps reduce load rollback, material spillage, and manual adjustments.
The redesigned cab features ergonomic controls, a more adjustable seat, an optional heated/ventilated seat (available only with the premium cab), a better HVAC system, and more legroom, storage, and power ports than previous models. Available in 60 in (152 cm) and 72 in (183 cm) lengths, improved shaft-style forks enable better visibility to the fork tips compared to previous models.
Routing of electrical wire harnesses and hydraulic hoses has been streamlined to reduce rubbing. An expanded selection of enhanced production buckets with integrated spill guards, curved side cutters, and impressive rollback boosts bucket-fill performance and material retention compared to the K-Series. Cross-tube and boom geometry of the Z-Bar linkage has been streamlined to provide a better view to the front attachment.
Three additional inches of hinge-pin height on the 724L over the 724K provides more clearance for dumping into high feeders, hoppers, trucks, and wagons. In addition to burning less fuel while meeting EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage V emissions, the 644L Hybrid Loader also delivers quick, smooth, and responsive hydraulics; fast ramp-climbing ability; and strong pushing power.
