SmartShift ensures that gear changes are smooth as silk, regardless of whether
the bucket is empty or fully loaded.
Engine/hydraulic match maintains good boom and bucket power into and out of
the pile. For big loads, even in wet or packed materials.
Optional spin control boosts productivity by improving traction in troublesome
material or underfoot conditions. Reduces tire wear, fuel costs, and operator
fatigue, too.
Responsive steering and full 80-degree articulation increase maneuverability in
tight quarters, for faster cycle times and fewer three-point turns.
Hydraulic system provides only the power required, so there’s no wasted
horsepower or fuel.
Boom-height kick-out and return-to-carry functions help speed production in
repetitive loading applications. On Powerllel-equipped loaders, the touchpad
has two presets for added convenience when frequent attachment changeover
is required.

Powerllel’s unique design separates the bell crank from the cross tube, attaching
instead to the loader frame via a Y-shape link. This “free-floating” bell-crank
design allows load forces to work with, not against, the boom. For powerful
breakout in tough digging.
Coupler fastens the attachment close to the machine to optimize stability with
heavy loads.
Unique Y-link, low-mounted boom cylinders, and Hi-Vis coupler provide clear
visibility to the work tool and throughout the lift arc.
Tire and axle options let you equip your Powerllel loader for material-handling
work on a wide variety of terrain.

productivity. It’s available on all Z-bar and high-lift loaders.
General-purpose or excavating buckets are available in pin-on or coupler configurations from 1.9–2.7 m3 (2.0–3.5 cu. yd). Or opt for the 1.5- or 2.29-m (60 or 90 in.)
wide forks with 1.22- or 1.52-m (48 or 60 in.) tines.
Need to take productivity to another level? High-lift option (not available on 524K)
extends lift height nearly 381 mm (15 in.).
Axle choices include front and rear locking differentials or front locking differential
with conventional rear.
Rear-axle disconnect disengages power when not needed. Reduces fuel consumption
and tire wear, and helps smooth the ride during roading or transport.
1. With ride control, the lift cylinders act as
shock absorbers, cushioning bumps to
allow these loaders to navigate rough ground
more quickly without losing their loads. Autoactuation travel speed is adjustable between
3.2 and 24.1 km/h (2 and 15 mph).
2. Worksite Pro™ couplers increase versatility
and make attachment switchover pushbutton easy. Hi-Vis coupler conforms to
ISO23727, allowing it to pick up a broad
range of John Deere and other attachments.

Loader operating information is based on machine with identified linkage and standard equipment, ROPS cab, rear cast bumper/counterweight, transmission side-frame guards, bottom guards, standard tires,
full fuel tank, and 79-kg (175 lb.) operator. This information is affected by changes in tires, ballast, and different attachments, and assumes no tire deflection per the standard ISO 14397-1 section 5.
Adjustments to Operating Weights and Tipping Loads with Buckets
Adjustments to operating weights and tipping loads are based on Z-bar machine and pin-on 1.9-m3 (2.5 cu. yd.) general-purpose bucket with bolt-on cutting edge, ROPS cab, rear cast bumper/
counterweight, transmission side-frame guards, bottom guards, standard tires, full fuel tank, and 79-kg (175 lb.) operator*

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.
