John Deere announced on June 13 that it has added the John Deere 324E to its existing line of skid steer loaders.
The machine has a 74 horsepower engine, upgraded controls, and heightened boom performance. Its design is geared toward reducing daily operating costs while boosting productivity.
"The addition of the 324E is a great complement to our portfolio and provides contractors even more freedom to choose a skid steer that best suits their application needs," said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager of John Deere Construction & Forestry. "We're confident our customers won't find a more owner- and operator-friendly skid steer on the market, and that's because their input was the inspiration behind the best-in-class experience operators can expect from the E-Series line as a whole."
Operators can use ISO, H-pattern or foot/joystick electrohydraulic joystick controls. They can switch between all three control patterns while working with the push of a button. Cab improvements like expansive curved front glass and a large top window have also been made to the machine to provide operators with more visibility.
The expanded engine compartment provides a clear view of action behind the operator. There is also a large entryway with an all-glass curved door for wide-open access. This allows users to slip in and out of the skid steer loader without any issues.
