Manufacturing giant John Deere has expanded its performance tiering strategy to include compact equipment with the launch of three new compact loaders.

The company say that the 184 G-tier, a newly released model, and the 204 G-tier and larger 304 G-tier model have been designed to give its customers machines that can “complete everyday tasks.”

All three models come with the option of an enclosed cab or canopy design, which is said to offer more flexibility to the operator in a wider range of tasks as well as provide a wider range of view due to its fully glass door, floor-to-ceiling front windshield and remounted machine display.

The canopy design is said to enable users to work on sites that require smaller machines due to its smaller height (8 feet) and width (5 feet 10 inches) while still allowing full control over the machine in tight areas.

All three G-tier Compact Wheel Loaders are now available for purchase in North America.

The buckets of the 185 G-tier and 204 G-tier can be attached to either a Quik-Tatch or hook-style coupler and an optional ride-control is said to minimise the risk of spillage from the bucket when working over sites with rough terrain.

To improve operator safety, a slip differential automatically engages if one wheel loses traction, and an adjustable steering column, slip-resistant steps, and optional LED lighting package makes the machine more comfortable to use.

John Deere say that maintenance of the machines is improved thanks to ground-level service, and increased capacity fuel tanks means less downtime.

Luke Gribble, Solutions Marketing Manager, John Deere Construction and Forestry Division, said,“These machines are not only rugged, but they boast simple and intuitive machine controls that are a great fit for operators of all experience levels, while also offering options that promote operator comfort and productivity.”
