- 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.
- 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.
- Outstanding reach enables the 344 P-Tier to efficiently dump to the center of tandem-axle trucks, for quick loading cycles. With exceptional lift and height to hinge pin, the optional High-Lift configuration makes this capable compact especially adept at repetitive dumping and stacking applications.
- With a standard top speed of under 25 mph, the 344 P-Tier can make some pretty quick moves on and between jobsites.
- Low-effort joystick controls boom and bucket, forward-neutral-reverse (F-N-R), and differential lock. Adjustable-height monitor lets operators keep close watch on vital machine functions.
- Standard ride control cushions the boom during travel over rough and uneven terrain, reducing material spillage from the bucket and minimizing site cleanup.
