The 204 is powered by a 190-HP Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 3 diesel engine with full electronic control and protection. The unit includes an engine-driven fan cooling package and engine block heater as standard equipment.

Joystick Control

Dual joysticks provides intuitive control of the hydraulics for lifting, tilting and reaching simultaneously.

Overhead Lift Arm

The unique overhead lift arm design gives the operator full front visibility when lifting, placing or transporting loads. The arms are mounted behind the cab, rather than in front where they would obstruct the forward view.

Solid Frame

Unlike other forward-reaching, articulated loaders, the 204 has a heavy-duty, solid steel frame design that allows it to take full loads into sharp turns without sacrificing load capacity or stability.

Wheel Base

Wheel base of just 12 feet provides a tight turning radius of 21 feet, 6 inches.


Excellent maneuverability thanks to 4-wheel drive with 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab hydraulic power steering modes.

Hydraulic Frame Sway

Hydraulic frame sway control and side shift stabilize loads by leveling the lifting frame when driving on uneven ground. The sway cylinder moves 7 degrees both right and left of center.


The 204 is capable of reaching the forks out an extra 4 feet without having to reposition the machine. It offers a maximum lift height of 14 feet.

Fuel Tank

70-gallon (265 L) fuel tank capacity allows for longer operating intervals.

Operator Cab

A sliding door offers quick access to the comfortable cab, which includes a tilt/telescoping steering column and swiveling, adjustable suspension seat with padded armrests and lumbar support.


Large tinted safety glass windows contribute to better visibility.
