An optional ride control is now available, designed to reduce material spillage and provide a smoother ride over rough and uneven terrain. Automatically activated front and rear differential locks are included to provide increased traction in harsh conditions.

The machine height of the 204L is also configurable to less than 8 feet for jobs with overhead space constraints.

The L Series compact wheel loaders are equipped with features to minimize maintenance, including hydraulically released, self-adjusting park and service brakes, ground-level maintenance points, and easier cooler access. The new models also offer extended service intervals for engine oil/filter, final drives oil, and hydraulic oil.

Cab-wise, owners have the option of selecting an enclosed cab or open station. Deere says it has also improved the interior cooling system to keep the operator comfortable in warmer temperatures.

L Series compact wheel loaders are compatible with over 100 John Deere Worksite Pro attachments. The auxiliary hydraulic control used for attachments has been moved to the primary joystick to increase attachment productivity and ease of use.

An optional LED lighting package provides a more reliable light source for working in low light conditions, according to Deere.
