244J Loader key specifications
Operating Weight .....................................11,552 lb.
Net Horsepower .......................................59 hp
Pin Height .................................................126 in.
Full Turn Tip Load ....................................7,718 lb.
Bucket Size ..............................................1.0 cu. yd.
Bucket Breakout Force ...........................10,792 lb.
Unique stereo steering makes this compact loader
even more productive, for tight turns and extra agility
in close quarters.
Optional Worksite Pro™ skid-steer-style coupler lets
you utilize many of the same attachments used on
skid steers.
244J’s big breakout forces, high dump clearance,
and generous lift capacities make it the perfect
machine for a wide variety of work.
Two-range hydrostatic drivetrain delivers an infinite
travel speed from 0 to 19 mph. The inching pedal
further fine-tunes control.
Interim Tier 4-certified John Deere turbocharged diesel
delivers power without compromise in all conditions.
Extended service intervals help maximize uptime.

Unlike comparable-size machines, return-to-dig
is standard.
Oscillating stereo steering combines machine
articulation and rear-axle steering, giving the
244J the tightest turn radius in its class.
18-inch tires are standard.
1
1. Boom float allows easy backdragging
for finish grading and cleaning up
jobsites.
2. An oscillating rear axle and elastic
articulation at the pivot smooth the
ride for greater material retention
and reduced operator fatigue.
3. Manual low-speed differential
lock delivers the traction needed
to go deeper into the pile for
bigger bucket loads.
2
4. 244J’s long reach lets it easily dump
to the center of tandem-axle trucks
for quicker and easier loading.
5. The 244J’s unique design turns tight
but articulates less, keeping the center
of gravity and ballast in line to counteract load forces — for superior full-turn
tipping load capacity.

Inching/brake pedal lets you slow travel speed while
keeping engine rpm high for optimum hydraulic response
and control.
Interior and exterior convex mirrors further enhance the
244J’s best-in-class visibility.

help keep the view clear, the cab comfortable.

Wet-disc brakes in the heavy-duty axles self-adjust and
are sealed from moisture and contaminants for long,
trouble-free life.
Proportional fan runs only as needed to provide
optimal cooling — for reduced wear and tear on
cooling components.
Turbocharged Deere PowerTech™ diesel runs quiet
and is certified to EPA interim Tier 4 emissions
regulations so it can work where rigid sound- and
air-quality regulations exist.
Access to the hydraulic loader valve, differential lock,
optional ride control, and other components is quick
and convenient.

1. Remote test ports enable technicians
to quickly troubleshoot problems.

bars make getting in and out of
the cab easier.

* This guide, representing bucket sizes not necessarily manufactured by
Deere, will help you in selecting proper bucket size for material density,
loader configuration, and operating conditions. Optimum bucket size
is determined after adding or subtracting all tipping load changes due
to optional equipment. The “conservative load” line on this guide is
recommended when operating in conditions such as soft ground and
unlevel surfaces. The “maximum load” condition on this guide is
sometimes utilized when operating on firm ground and level surfaces.

CONTROL OWNING AND OPERATING COSTS
Customer Personal Service (CPS) is part of John Deere’s proactive, fix-before-fail strategy on machine maintenance that will help control costs, increase profits, and reduce
stress. Included in this comprehensive lineup of ongoing programs and services are:
Fluid analysis program – tells you what’s going on inside all of your machine’s
major components so you’ll know if there’s a problem before you see a decline in
performance. Fluid analysis is included in most extended coverage and preventivemaintenance agreements.
Component life-cycle data – gives you vital information on the projected life
span of components and lets you make informed decisions on machine maintenance
by telling you approximately how many hours of use you can expect from an engine,
transmission, or hydraulic pump. This information can be used to preempt catastrophic
downtime by servicing major components at about 80 percent of their life cycle.
Preventive Maintenance (PM) agreements – give you a fixed cost for maintaining a machine for a given period of time. They also help you avoid downtime by ensur-
Net engine power is with standard equipment including air
cleaner, exhaust system, alternator, and cooling fan at test
conditions per ISO9249. No derating is required up to 5,000-ft.
(1500 m) altitude.
ing that critical maintenance work gets done right and on schedule. On-site preventive
maintenance service performed where and when you need it helps protect you from
the expense of catastrophic failures and lets you avoid waste-disposal hassles.
Extended coverage – gives you a fixed cost for machine repairs for a given period
of time so you can effectively manage costs. Whether you work in a severe-service
setting or just want to spread the risk of doing business, this is a great way to customfit coverage for your operation. And an extended coverage contract also travels well
because it’s backed by John Deere and is honored by all Deere construction dealers.
Customer Support Advisors (CSAs) – Deere believes the CSA program lends a
personal quality to Customer Personal Service (CPS). Certified CSAs have the knowledge
and skills for helping make important decisions on machine maintenance and repair.
Their mission is to help you implement a plan that’s right for your business and take
the burden of machine maintenance off your shoulders.
Specifications and design subject to change without notice. Wherever applicable, specifications are in accordance with SAE
standards. Except where otherwise noted, these specifications are based on a unit with all standard equipment, 365/70R18 tires,
ROPS cab, full fuel tank, and 175-lb. (79 kg) operator.
