John Deere has announced the launch of its Mechanical Self-Leveling Loader (MSL) option for small tractors. These new loaders, designed to keep loads level throughout a lift, are compatible with John Deere 1E, 1R, 2R, and 3E compact utility tractors.
With the MSL option in place, operators can maintain a level bucket or pallet position from the bottom of a lift to the top. In turn, they benefit from increased stability and reduce the potential for materials to fall back toward the tractor.
“Our new MSL makes it easier for our customers to move materials by automatically keeping the bucket or pallet forks level,” said Ray Gherardini, product marketing manager, John Deere. “With the new Mechanical Self-Leveling loaders, customers can confidently operate the loader through a full range of motion while keeping the load level, and save time by moving more with every load.”
The MSL option is easy to use, compared to non-self-leveling loaders. The loader joystick can be pushed forward to lower and back to lift. The load automatically stays level throughout the entire range of motion, and operators don’t have to worry about making any adjustments with the loader joystick.
John Deere MSL loaders for 120R, 220R, and 300E machines will be available with a third function kit that allows for the use of additional attachments. The QuikPark™ loader mounting system and Quik-Change™ attachment carrier also provide operators with the ability to install and remove implements quickly.
