Mid-Size Wheel Loaders

John Deere mid-size wheel loaders will elevate your reach, comfort, and control. With a high-lift option available for all of our mid-size models, these versatile loaders can put more productivity within your reach. More horse means more force — our medium loaders range from 124 hp to 264 hp, so that your machine takes you wherever you want to go.

Pick your preference between a single-lever joystick, or two-lever fingertip controls to effortlessly get the job done. Man your machine without removing your hand from the joystick by controlling up to six functions such as bucket vibrate and hydraulic-function flow. No matter the job, our L-Series loaders provide more productivity, hands down.
