John Deere 244 P-Tier Compact Wheel Loader

Model Photo

244 P-Tier

  • Net Power: 52 kW (71 hp) at 2,400 rpm
  • Operating Weight: 5560 kg (12,258 lb.)
  • Bucket Capacity: 0.8–1.1 m3 (1.0–1.4 cu. yd.)



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 loaders 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.
