Get a Jump on the Competition by Expanding Your Landscape Operations with John Deere Compact Machinery

Spring is the season of rebirth and rejuvenation. It’s also a good time for landscapers to bring new life to their operations and explore new business opportunities. Here’s a guide to help you find the right John Deere compact machine to make quick work of existing jobs — and imagine even more for your operation. It’s time to take the leap!

GO BIG.

With their additional lift height and reach, increased boom and bucket breakout forces, and greater horsepower than their small-frame siblings, large-frame 331G and 333G CTLs and 330G and 332G Skid Steers are built to handle your most challenging landscapes. Electrohydraulic (EH) boom performance package on large-frame models provides bucket self-leveling in both the up and down directions, and programmable return-to-dig, return-to-carry, and boom-height kickout settings to ease highly repetitive load and carry tasks.

FROM SMALL SEEDS, GREAT THINGS GROW.

Weighing only 2722 to 3721 kg (5,995 to 8,195 lb.), small-frame 312GR–318G Skid Steers and 317G CTL are easy to pull behind a standard pickup truck. Slimmed-down wheel options enable small-frame skid steers to easily fit through openings as narrow as 1.52 m (60 in.).

ROCK (AND MULCH) STARS.

Loaded with state-of-the-art enhancements, our mid-frame 320G and 324G Skid Steers and 325G CTL deliver strong pushing power and bucket breakout forces, for the tractive effort and leverage to shape the land, handle heavy pallet loads, and power through piles of rock and mulch. Flexible control choices and programmable performance settings can be matched to specific jobsite requirements. Their vertical-lift boom design rises higher and reaches farther than previous models, for quicker and easier loading.

THE GREAT ESCAPE.

Zero- and reduced-tail-swing designs allow our nimble compact excavators to rotate fully without banging their tails into things. The 17G’s variable-width undercarriage hydraulically retracts, providing passage through narrow openings and into tight quarters.

WORK CIRCLES AROUND YOUR COMPETITORS.

With powerful lift capacity and breakout force, the 30G is our latest compact excavator and an ideal addition to your landscape lineup. Both the 30G and 26G feature swing booms and foldable travel pedals positioned to ease operation and maximize foot room. On all models, spacious operator stations feature wide entryways and expansive all-around visibility. The front glass on the 35G, 50G, and 60G is 51-mm (2 in.) wider and 152-mm (6 in.) taller than previous models.

MAKE SHORT WORK OF YOUR NEXT TASK

Just 2.47-m (8 ft.) tall, our 204L and 304L deliver lower clearance than many wheel loaders in their class — and are a full foot lower than our 244L. This helps you be more productive when navigating low entryways and narrow openings. And with up to 930-mm (3 ft. 1 in.) reach and 2.62-m (8 ft. 7 in.) dump clearance, they easily tackle loading trucks or placing pallets.

TURN ONE LOOSE.

With their narrow machine widths and exceptional reach, our compact wheel loaders capably handle a wide range of tasks, even on crowded jobsites. Industry-exclusive Articulation Plus™ steering system on the 244L, 324L, and 344L enables tight turns with large loads, delivering more turn-tip capability and stability than standard articulation loaders.

REACH YOUR POTENTIAL

New loader arm and coupler design improves the lifting path to near parallel — for better load-carrying capability than previous models. Looking for a little more reach? Increased height to hinge pin makes the 324L High-Lift especially adept at piling materials and stacking lighter loads.
