Boasting excellent stability and maneuverability, the 344L Compact Loader delivers what you need to move more material, more quickly. And then some. The Articulation Plus steering system allows tight turns with large loads, delivering more lift capability than leading competitor machines. Enhanced vertical lift and faster travel speeds further boost productivity. And a more comfortable cab and smooth automatic shifting help the operator stay focused on the job at hand. Plus a host of features including more efficient cooling and ground-level servicing help keep you up and running while keeping costs down. Turn a highly capable 344L loose on your jobsite!

WORK THE ROOM

The 344L boasts a number of feature improvements over prior models, including a more spacious cab and expansive all-around visibility with a better view of the bucket, along with low-effort controls and an optional air-ride high-back seat.

COOL IT

Redesigned engine compartment and cooling package improve airflow and reduce the amount of debris entering the system. Cooler cores are easy to access behind a large screen, for fast ground-level cleanout. Add a reversible fan for quick core cleanout in high-debris applications.

MATERIAL GAIN

Load-sensing AutoShift employs a proprietary software with "shift logic" that eliminates the need to constantly stop and shift. The result is much smoother shifting and maximum material retention.

Articulation Plus™ Turns Tighter – And Turns Heads

This industry-exclusive feature combines 30 deg. Of articulation with an additional 10 deg. of rear-wheel steer. The result is greater full-turn tipping load, a tighter turning radius, and more stability than comparable competitive articulation loaders.

PARALLEL LIFT

New loader-arm and coupler design improves the lifting path to near parallel — for better load-carrying capability. This keeps the load much more level from ground level to truck-bed height to full height. Fewer adjustments mean more material stays in the bucket or on the forks.

LOCK INTO MORE PRODUCTIVITY

Throttle lock and creep control allow the operator to set a low ground speed while maintaining full engine power to the attachment — perfect for applications like snow blowing.

FULL SPEED AHEAD

Travel speeds up to 25 mph help improve productivity on large jobsites and for snow removal.

TAKE CONTROL OF WEAR LIFE

Rimpull control manages power to the wheels, reducing tire and driveline wear.
