ArborAge Editorial: Make Handling a Breeze with Tobroco Giant Loaders
May 10, 2018
Owners and operators depend on their equipment to make them more competitive and more profitable. Having built over 15, 000 loaders in the Netherlands, Tobroco Giant loaders are an internationally reputable loader. Furthermore they assist customers in achieving and exceeding work standards across the Arbour industry.
The Tobroco Giant Loaders are the perfect choice for contractors who depend on their equipment to make a living. The compact size, high tractive force and lifting power make the machine ideal for all challenges and tasks faced by Arborists.
Tobroco Giant Loaders: better manoeuvrability and performance with easy access for maintenance
The D337T X-TRA has a lower front frame which decreases the centre of gravity resulting in excellence on both the attachments and stability of the machine while also increasing the lifting capacity. A D337T X-TRA has a tipping load of 2.054 kg in comparison with 1.450kg for the standard model. Once equipped with one of the 200+ attachments (including Grapple, Buckets or Pallet Forks), job timelines may reduce by at least 20%. This can save your business thousands and your workers the extra labour.
The new wheel loader has a 33hp, 3-cylinder Kubota diesel engine. Furthermore, a hydraulic pump from Bosch Rexroth creates smooth and powerful driving characteristics. The machines service weight is 2.200kg (measured with earth bucket) with a lifting height of 2.45m. Like all Giant machines the pendulum joint between the front and back frame is completely free from maintenance.
The D337T X-TRA has hydrostatic four-wheel drive with automotive control and automatic differential lock on both axles. This give the machine a maximum driving speed of 18km/h. A great advantage of this option is that the machine will have extra tractive force in its second gear.
Additional extras available for customisation include: a safety roof deluxe, foldable safety roof or cabin are available for this model.
The D337T Series can be accurately controlled from closed to open. This makes the grapples suitable for carrying variably sized tree loads especially using the hydraulic rotators standard on the grapple. The increased manoeuvrability of the machine means D337T X-TRA is great for both small and large job sites.
All Tobroco Giant attachments including the Grapple and forks attach and detach within seconds. This is because of their hydraulic attachment system. Grapples have 2x double acting hydraulic function on the lifting arm providing more power and greater usage.
Options for Attachment
A range of attachments are available including:
- Wood, Branch and horizontal tree Grapples
- Log splitters;
- Stump grinders
