Machines That Don’t Horse Around
Tobroco Giant machines easily operate in tight spaces and on rough terrain, so it’s the perfect loader for horse stables. Depending on the tyres, the machines vary in width between 78 and 210 centimetres. The height starts at 2m for a machine with safety roof and 2.2m with a cabin. With a foldable safety roof option, the machine height can decrease by 34 centimetres.
Despite the compact sizes and low service weight, these machines are capable of delivering a high pulling force and tipping load. The smallest wheel loader in the range has a service weight of 1.100 kg, but a tipping load of 1.000 kg meaning the machine can almost lift its own weight. If your horse stables are smaller with tighter stalls, a skid steer loader is the ideal solution. These little giants have a very short wheelbase (74 cm) and low service weight (starting from 750 kg). With a tipping load of 230 kg, the skid steer loaders significantly reduce hard labour.
Bigger horse stables and breeders may require more lifting power, making the V452T wheel loader the perfect machine for the job. Due to the four-cylinder engine (45 hp), automatic gear and heavy planetary final drive, the V452T is a superior loader. Due to a high oil flow to the working hydraulics the machine is capable of working with heavy attachments that need a high output.
Attachments are just as important as the machine with a specific range of attachments for the equine industry available. Besides the standard attachments like manure forks, bale clamps and pallet forks, there are various special attachments available including a vacuum unit to collect horse manure, levellers to prepare the riding area’s or a manure container. We will be expanding this range further over the coming years based on our customer feedback and requirements.
Leading role in a video
The machines mentioned above are featured in a video recorded at Academy Bartels, a well-known training facility led by the Bartels family. They have participated in 6 Olympic Games and have won 3 Olympic medals. The video shows Giant machines can perform a wide variety of tasks in the horse industry.
